Terri says…

I wrote this song with Gary Burr about 10 years ago, and have loved it ever since. To me this is a real, grown up song about a relationship in trouble. So many people have been there. Being in love comes and goes. There are ups and downs of a long term partnerships, and this song raises the question as to whether or not they will weather the storm, and stick it out. Do we or don’t we stay together?- how many have asked that question. The conversational quality it has felt like a natural duet when I dug it up and started to listen to it again. Johnny Reid and I have very different voices, which is why I think this worked so well.

Lyrics

Written by T Clark, G Burr

You tell me cuz I don’t know
How we are or where we go from here
I can’t read your mind
Is everything okay
Oh don’t ask me, I don’t know what to say
You tell me
What comes next
What I can and can’t expect from you
Is there somethin we can mend
What will the story be
Oh you’ve got all the answers that I need

Do we wave a flag and say it’s over
Do we honor all the vows we made
I love the way we were
Tomorrow what will we be
You tell me

Cuz I cant play
This guessing game where love can stay or go
It changes with the wind
What our hearts will do
Whatever way it blows is up to you

Do we wave a flag and say it’s over
Do we honor all the vows we made
I love the way we were
Tomorrow what will we be
You tell me

Do we wave a flag and say it’s over
Do we honor all the vows we made
I love the way we were
Tomorrow what will we be
You tell me
You tell me
