Lyrics

I’ll Tell You Later

Drew James © 2008

 

Dry your eyes

There’s a million dreams about you

Mesmerized

They can’t spin their tales without you

Pale moonlight

Slips in through the open window

Hold on tight

This is where the midnight wind blows

Through your mind

 

Close your ears

There is nothing left to hear

All the simple words that scratch beneath the crowded surface

Have now fulfilled their useful purpose

And turned away like total strangers

So I can’t tell you now I’ll tell you later

Can’t tell you now I’ll tell you later

Can’t tell you now I’ll tell you later

 

Truth or lies?

Both are told by saints and sinners

Who decides?

Can’t tell the losers from the winners

Paradise

Is sweeter than a thousand crimes

If I’ve heard it twice

I’ve heard it a thousand times

So I would mind

 

(Chorus)

 

I know anything that I might say

Would sound like some old tired refrain

It’s gentle meaning used and worn away

Just like yesterday

Like goodbye

 

Can’t tell you now I’ll tell you later (X2)

 

(Bridge)

 

Can’t tell you now I’ll tell you later (X2)
