Tell It Like It Is

Tracey Chapman “Tell It Like It Is”: Some lyrics just speak to you

Say it say it say it
Tell it like it is

What breaks your heart
What keeps you awake at night
What makes you want to breakdown and cry

Say you’ll tell it like it is
Say it say it say it
So everyone can hear
Say it say it say it tell it like it is

How your anger and grief
Make you want to cry out
And tell it like it is

Say you’ll never close your eyes
Or pretend that it’s a rosy world
Say you’ll never try to paint what is rotten with a sugarcoat
Say you’ll talk about the horrors you’ve seen and the torment you know
And tell it like it is

Say it say it say it
So no one can forget
Say it say it say it
Tell it like it is

What breaks your heart
What keeps you awake at night
What makes you want to break the ties that silence and bind
And tell it like it is

Say you’ll never cover your ears and close your mouth
And live in a silent world
Say that then you’ll tell the truth
When a lie could cross your lips

And tell it like it is
