Lyrics
Melissa - Tell me what you feel
Melissa - Tell me what is real

Don’t be afraid to speak your mind
Don’t talk behind my back
You’re always keeping track
Possessing every lie

Melissa - Why don’t you just come out and say it?
Melissa - I think you’re obsessed with this

I didn’t mean to make you cry
I know you weren’t impressed
But I only spoke in jest
I didn’t mean to cross the line

[bridge]
And now you’ve got yourself a shiny new cause
I know you think it’s going to...
take you away so far from us

Melissa, tell me what you feel
Melissa, tell me what is real
Melissa, why don’t you just come out and say it?
Melissa...
Melissa...
Melissa...
