  • I get out my records
    When you go away
    When people are talking
    I miss what they say
    'Cause it all means nothing, my dear
    If I can't be holding you near
    So tell me you love me
    'Cause that's all that I need to hear

    I sit in my kitchen
    With nothing to eat
    With so many friends I
    I don't wanna meet
    'Cause I don't need music in my ears
    I don't need the crowds and the cheers
    Oh, just tell me you love me
    'Cause that's all that I need to hear

    I've been told
    So many times before
    But hearing it from you
    Means much more
    So much more

    Reply to my message
    And pick up my calls
    You see, I wrote you a letter
    It was no use at all

    Oh, I don't care if you're insincere
    Just tell me what I wanna hear
    You know where to find me
    The place where we've lived all these years, oh
    Tell me you love me
    That's all I need to hear
    Oh, tell me you love me
    That's all I need to hear
