"Tell Me What I Want" is a demo by Rivers Cuomo.


"Tell Me What I Want" was originally demoed in consideration for what would eventually become Make Believe. It was included on the The 4 and 5 Star Demos of Rivers Cuomo under 2003 and the Alone collection included an edit in 2008.


Sick inside my heart and stomach too
Poisoned by the things I shouldn't do
Weariness is now my closest friend
Was there a time when life was pure?
I can't recall that anymore
What was it like to be a new baby?

Once I have a taste of any fruits
I can never change the things I do
Choices leave their marks along my skin
Look at me now, I'm wearing thin
So much it takes to feel again
Can I regain my innocent touch?

Tell me what I want now
Tell me what I need now
Tell me what I want this time
