Tell Me What I Want to Hear

Speak to me softly
Like sweet kisses in the middle of the night.

Tell me you love me; tell me you want me
Like the feeling of being free.

Never let me go, for I might fall...
Making me feel vulnerable and small.

Wrap your arms around me and keep me safe,
Forgetting all my years of being a waif.

Hold me near, so near
And tell me what I want to hear.
