Michael Kiwanuka – Tell Me A Tale lyrics

Tell me a tale that always was,
Sing me a song that I'll always be in,
Tell me a story that I can read, tell me a story that
I believe...

Paint me a picture that I can see,
Give me a touch that I can feel,
Turn me around, so I can be,
Everything I was meant to be...

Lord I need loving,
Lord I need good, good loving 2X

Show me some strength that I can use,
Give me a sound that I won't refuse,
Tell me a story that I can read,
Tell me a story that I believe...
