Lyrics

Words and Music by John Masarone

You think you really know me but you haven't got a clue
In part you will accept me because you think I'm just like you

I really don't know who you are but I'll find something to say
I feel your love around me as we enjoy this gorgeous day

I'll sell you down the river while you're holding up your arms
I'll sell you down the river and delight you with my charm

Tell me what you want to hear
Because I'm setting the table for next year
I'm willing and I'm able to support all your fears

The more you hear about that's bad the more I am endear
The freedom that you give me I brag, "You'll never leave me. Let's be clear."

And I'll sell you down the river with all your hopeless dreams
and what I can't deliver I'll just dump into the sea

Tell me what you want to hear
Because I'm setting the table for next year
I'm willing and I'm able to back all your fears

I'll sell you down the river while you're holding up your arms
and when I can't deliver I'll delight you with my charm

Tell me what you want to hear
Because I'm setting the table for next year
I'm willing and I'm able to back all your fears

Tell me what you want to hear

I love the message of this song. It could be about an undesirable acquaintance, an ex-lover, or even a politician. Very good arrangement here and well put-together piece.
