Brenda Lee – Tell Me What It's Like lyrics

You know we've been close friends a long time now
And I just needed somebody to talk to
I hate to bring this subject up
Because I know how you've been hurt
With someone you really loved
And your whole world just crumbled apart
But I thought it might help me to know what it's like
When it happens so I came to you
'Cause I can feel it comin' on

Tell me what it's like to lose the only thing you care about
Tell me how it feels to know your only dream is gone
Tell me how you live when you've lost something you can't live without
Tell me what it's like, I can feel it comin' on
Tell me what it's like to wake up crying every morning
With an aching heart that just won't set you free

Tell me what you do when there's no one that you wanna do it with
There's nobody else you really wanna see
Tell me what it's like when those four lonely walls start closin' in
Tell me how it feels to spend the nights alone
Tell me what to say whenever someone ask you how you've been
Tell me what it's like (tell me what's it's like)
I can feel it comin' on (tell me)
Tell me what it's like
I can feel it comin' on
