Rock Ballad of The Week: White Lion “Tell Me”

10 Comments

 

We held each other tight
And ran away into the night
Oh baby you were so afraid
We knew we couldn’t stay
Your parents didn’t understand
The love we had together

We were teenagers
Far away from home
We were cold and all alone

So tell me baby all through the night
That you’ll never let me go
Tell me baby ’cause I want the world to know

Together we were one
We found the place where dreams are made
And hearts never broken
We said we’d never leave
You know we couldn’t turn around
And face that we had left behind

We were young in love
Out on the run
We were cold and all alone

So tell me baby all through the night
That you’ll never let me go
Tell me baby ’cause I want the world to know
Tell me baby I’m the only one
And all you ever need
Tell me baby that you’ll never let me go

Oh, come on and tell me
Oh and never let me go
Oh, never let me go

Tell me baby all through the night
That you’ll never let me go
Tell me baby ’cause I want the world to know
Tell me baby I’m the only one
And you ever need
Tell me baby that you’ll never let me go

Oh baby, you know we couldn’t turn around
‘Cause we were young up against the world
So tell me, tell that you’ll never let me go
‘Cause I need your love, and I need it all the time
