  • Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now

    I made a run, I run out yesterday
    Tried to find my mountain hideaway
    Maybe next year, maybe no go

    I know you're watching me every minute of the day, yeah
    I've seen the signs and the looks and pictures
    That give your game away, yeah

    There's a dream that strings the road
    With broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say

    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say?
    That would make you come my way
    Do you feel the same 'cause you don't let it show (ooh)

    People stare and cross the road from me
    And jungle drums they all clear the way for me
    Can you read my mind, can you see in the snow
    And fiery demons all dance when you walk through that door
    Don't say you're easy on me, you're about as easy as a nuclear war

    There's a dream that strings the road
    With broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say

    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say?
    That would make you come my way
    Do you feel the same 'cause you don't let it show

    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know? (please, please tell me now)
    Is there something I should say? (please, please tell me now)
    That would make you come my way (please, please tell me now)

    Please, please tell me now
    Can you see what makes me blow? (please, please tell me now)
    Can you see how much I die? (please, please tell me now)
    Every time it passes by (please, please tell me now)

    Please, please tell me now
    What it takes to make you show (please, please tell me now)
    Is there something I should know? (please, please tell me now)
    Is there something I should say? (please, please tell me now) Writer/s: Andy Taylor, John Taylor, Nick Rhodes, Roger Taylor, Simon Le Bon

  • Helena from United KingdomThis reminds me of the eighties of course, and the lovely clothes people wore back then, and the young having fun and being individual and quirky. I'm a Duran Duran fan and I like most of their songs.
  • Philippe from Kuala Lumpur, MalaysiaIt's thier 1'st no.1 song in the U.K.
  • Lance from Pittsburgh, PaThis song will always remind me of Virginia Beach of June, 1983. Remember hearing it for the first time at the local bars. Good song!
