lyrics

TELL ME WHAT YOU'VE DONE

verse: A E A (E B)
chorus: E (C#m B)
intro: E

blame your checkered past
excuses come at last...too fast
you will hide down deep everything you believe
there's still a heart sewn on your sleeve
you cannot deceive...anyone

[chorus]
tell me what you've done
living hard under the gun
tell me what you've done x2

this storm will tear these tattered sails
the sea come on as tough as nails
it never fails
you will betray yourself with a second thought
all the secrets that you've got
you will get caught...by one

[ch]
[solo over verse]
[build on E]

terrible as the wild unknown
you're reaching out but you're alone,
you're always alone, oh...

[ch]
tell me what you've done
living hard under the gun
tell me what you've done x5
