Tell Me That You Love Me

tell me that you love me... tell me that you care...

tell me that you love me... I need to hear it again and again...

...

tell me that you love me... I need to hear it again and again...

...

it's not just marking time; this clocking our progress

the hours and the minutes; the dusk through the dawn

the waking dreams that keep me hanging on (you keep me hanging on...)

...

 so tell me that you love me... tell me that you care...

tell me that you love me... darlin' ... I will be there...

Originally the only song recorded on my old Gibson ES-335 12 string electric guitar,  ( now long gone ); though for Brendan and Valerie's nuptuals, sung acoustically in the doorway of a little restaurant in Ottawa on my Martin D-35 12 string; (never to part). love to all (so long as it may last), d.
