Description
This was a bit of a throwaway song that I found in my songbook and revisited and added another verse. I know this would fit a bit better in the psychedelic genre, but oh well.
I truly hope you like it. I really don't have that much to say about it. I'm always impressed how much MJer's write in the song descriptions. lol

Lyrics
Tell Me

After I see a picture of you
I close my eyes once again
Before I knew of anything
I saw your vision instead

Tell me anything my friend
Just say that you want me
Do me in behind the shed
Just say that you want me

Making maps of everything
You change your symbol to red
Find an X that leads to it
And ignore the things that they said

Tell me anything my friend
Just say that you want me
Looking deep inside my head
The system has lost me

since I 'did' anyone behind the shed David, but if they'd sung to me with a song as nicely produced and performed as this... I just might consider it LOL.... Seriously, it's a really nice performance.... very calming, cheers M

Good song
Good song writing, pretty good arrangement.

And you get bonus point for keeping the intro short. Half a beat is something of a record. I really don't like those intros that go on an on for 8, 16, 32 measures.....

subtle but there - especially in the chorus. I like the easy flow and the strings/melotron voicing.

You have a great
knack for writing chorus hooks that are infectious and addicting! Isn't it fun to bring life to scribbles in songbooks - there's a Dr. Frankenstein in all of us musicians!

Classic in every sense. This would be one of those songs on an album that wasn't released as a single yet at the same time a fan favorite. Lyrics are fantastic!
