lyrics

When I was small,
My mother pressed a seed in my hand
She told me, “Love, don’t give this
Just to any old man.
Make sure he loves you
Make sure he loves you

This seed will grow
In ways that you can’t understand
Until you’re older,
Don’t give this just to
Any old man.
Make sure he loves you.
Make sure you love him.”

Well, I’ve been racking my mind
Just to realize why
You walked away so quickly
Never thought it could be
Any more than things before
You walked right out
That open door
Tell me
Tell me tell me
Slowly

Free spirited,
I loved you like a nightingale
You pressed my lips with your
Fingertips, ’til I thought
I’d fail to love you
To love you

Hand in hand,
We skipped dipping our feet in the water
Figured head first
Would make all our decisions smarter
Test our blood for the strength
To love each other

Well, I’ve been racking my mind
Just to realize why
You walked away so quickly
Never thought it could be
Any more than things before
You walked right out
That open door
Tell me
Tell me tell me
Slowly

Heart will ache
And leaves will wrap around
Your shoulders
Keep you warm,
Until your spirits feel
Much bolder
Give you faith for the strength
To love another

Vines will mingle
And wines will all begin to mix
White and red, all black beneath
Your dirty tricks
Give you faith for the strength
To love another

Well, I’ve been racking my mind
Just to realize why
You walked away so quickly
Never thought it could be
Any more than things before
You walked right out
That open door
Tell me
Tell me tell me
Slowly

Tell me slowly
Tell me tell me
Slowly
Tell me slowly
Tell me tell me
Slowly
Tell me slowly
Tell me tell me
Slowly
Tell me slowly
Darling, darling
Tell me

I’ve been racking my brain
Just to train myself
To walk a little quickly
Stop thinking it could be
Any more than things before
You walked right out
That open door
Tell me
Tell me tell me
Slowly
