  Infidels session 10, Power Station NYC - 21.apr.1983 #1  

Tell me, tell me I've got to know
Tell me, tell me before I go
Does that fire still burn, does that flame still glow?
Or has it died out and melted like the snow?
Tell me, tell me.

Tell me what are you focused upon?
Tell me will it come to me after you're gone
Tell me now with a glance or a sigh
Shall I hold you close or let you go by?
Tell me, tell me.

Is that the heat and the beat of your pulse that I feel?
If it's not that, then what is it you're trying to conceal?
Do you have any secrets that will only come out in time?
Do you lay in your bed, do you stare at the stars?
Is your main friend someone who's an old acquaintance of ours?
Tell me, yes, tell me.

Tell me, are those rock 'n' roll dreams in your eyes?
Tell me behind what door your treasure lies.
Ever gone broke in a big way?
Ever done the opposite of what the experts say?
Tell me, mmm, tell me.

Is this some kind of game that you're playing with my heart?
How deep must I go, where do I start?
Do you have any morals, do you have any point of view?
Is that a smile that I see on your face?
Will it lead me to glory or lead me to disgrace?
Tell me, tell me.

Tell me, is that my name in your book?
Tell me, will you go back and take another look?
Tell me the truth, don't tell me no lies
Are you anybody's someone prays for or cries?
Tell me, mmm, tell me.  up

Tell Me 2


21 Apr 1983
cd imgROUGH CUTS (T-346)

  Infidels session 10, Power Station NYC - 21.apr.1983, #2  

Tell me, I've got to know.
Tell me, tell me before I go.
Does that flame still burn? Does that fire still glow?
Or has it died out and melted like the snow.
Tell me, tell me.

Tell me, what are you focused upon?
Tell me what I'll know better when you're gone.
Tell me quick with a glance on the side.
Shall I hold you close or shall I let you go by?
Tell me, tell me.

Are you looking at me and thinking of somebody else?
Can you feel the heat and the beat of my pulse?
Do you have any secrets that will all come out in time?
Do you lie in bed and stare at the stars?
Is your main friend someone who' an old acquaintance of ours?
Tell me, tell me.

Tell me, do those neon lights blind your eyes?
Tell me, behind what door your treasure lies.
Ever gone broke in a big way?
Ever done the opposite of what the experts say?
Tell me, tell me.

Is it some kind of game that you're playin' with me?
Am I imaginin' something that never can be?
Do you have any morals? Do you have any point of view?
Do you long to ride on that old ship of Zion?
What means more to you, a lap dog or a dead lion?
Tell me, tell me.

Tell me, is my name in your book?
Tell me, should I come back and take another look?
Tell me the truth, tell me no lies.
Are you someone anyone prays for or cries?
Tell me, tell me.  up
