Tell Me
Omar Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Please, tell me how
How can I stop from wanting you this bad
Please, teach me how
How can I stop from missing you this much
I wanna see you
But surely someday I'll dissapoint you
I want to hold you
Despite the meltdown, my dream comes true

Don't wanna miss you more
I don't seem to have any choice
Don't wanna get myself hurt
Everything works as a memento

I know my love won't decay
Don't run astray
I am afraid
You won't ever come to me
I'm drowned in fear
I miss your peace

Please, give me a clue
That all you said about me was the truth
I want to believe
But it's too good for my reality, is it destiny?
I want to call you
Just to tell you how much I love you
'Cause hearing your voice,
Brings me so much rejoice

Alright, I'm gonna miss you more
After all, It's my own choice

I know my love won't decay
Don't run astray
I am afraid
You won't ever come to me
I'm drowned in fear
I miss your peace

I've come to realise
I felt alive
When your hand held mine
With your head laying down
I felt love grow inside
When your arms
Intertwined with mine

I don't seek to trouble you
For all I do
Is loving you
I will try to feel ok
I'll feel like shit
I won't pretend
But I've got something else in mind
More important
Than my desires
That all my efforts may serve well




For you deserve
All happiness
