Tell Me One More Time


Girl, I guess I’ve been forgiven

I’ve acquired a taste for living

Just when I was close to giving up the ghost


And I be what I believe

About as often as I can be

And I maybe can be oftener than most


And if the best I have to offer

Is the chances you’ll be taking

With a heart that you’ll be breaking if you lose


Well I can’t tell you how to take it girl

I know you know the answer darling

Tell me one more time before you choose



         Did you feel a little lightning

         Did you feel a little thunder

         That was barely running under your control

         Was it just a little frightening

As you stared into the wonder

Of the deep and starry splendor of your soul


I won’t be surprised to see you

Heading down the highway

Just like every dream

I never seen come true


Look for me to go on living

If you’re loving me or leaving darling

Tell me one more time before you do


** Repeat Chorus
