Tell Me is a song written by Jaida Dreyer, Andrew Rollins, Cory Mayo and Jody Stevens and performed by Layla Grant in the Season Two episode I'm Tired of Pretending.

She dedicated the song to Will Lexington while giving herself an encore, ruining the sets and setting up Juliette Barnes' attempt to take her down.

It is included on The Music of Nashville (Season 2, Volume 1). An acoustic version of the song was also released as a digital single.

Lyrics

I got my reasons for leaving

I got my reasons to stay

But baby if you want

You can make me stop

Yeah, you know what to say


I just want you to tell me

Strings in my heart

Cause with our kind of love

We always wind up getting tangled in the dark


Tell me I'm the only one

The only one you're thinking of

Tell me I'm your queen

That I'm in your every dream


Tell me that you want me back

'Cause I'm the best you've ever had

Then love me for the night

And the rest of your whole life

Tell me


The words will flow if you feel it

I'll hang on to every one

But don't you hold them back

No point in doing that

So baby, please, come on


And tell me I'm the only one

The only one you're thinking of

Tell me I'm your queen

That I'm in your every dream


Tell me that you want me back

'Cause I'm the best you've ever had

Then love me for the night

And the rest of your whole life

Tell me


Tell me I'm the only one

The only one you're thinking of

Tell me I'm your queen

That I'm in your every dream


Tell me that you want me bad

'Cause I'm the best you've ever had

Then love me for the night

And the rest of your whole life

Tell me


Baby, tell me

Why don't you tell me?

Why don't you tell me?
