Day 3: Tell Me Now

“Tell Me Now” is probably the song on the EP that strays the most from the Crystal Cities musical formula. It’s essentially a straight-ahead indie rock track that Geoff had written around the same time of “Talking To Myself”.

We were tracking with Sean Carrey at Church Street Studios in Sydney at the time and we had managed to record all the parts to “Talking to Myself” in one day! Thus, we decided to use the second day to lay down an extra track – “Tell Me Now”. Despite it not exactly fitting the description of a Crystal Cities song, we thought it had enough swagger and vibe to warrant it being recorded.

I did see ya
Only last year
I was wasted and it was so unclear
So unclear

Well, tell me now

Now I did see ya
Only last year
I was wasted and it was so unclear
That you could want me
Like i want you
How you been?
You’re looking so damn cool

Well, tell me now
If you want to
Tell me now
If you want to
Well, tell me now

Now, if you have time
And you want to
We could get drunk and see where this leads to
But if it’s nothing
That leads to something
We could find a place that’s just for two

Well, tell me now
If you want to
Well, tell me now
If you want to
Tell me now

We could be
Wasted free
Waiting for
The return of the sun

Can you see
Future clear
The dawn is now
Is now on the run

I did see ya
Only last year
I was wasted and it was so unclear
So unclear

Well, tell me now
If you want to
Tell me now
If you want to
Tell me now

We could be
Wasted free
Waiting for
The return of the sun

Tell Me Now
If you want to
Tell me now
If you want to
Tell me now
If you want to
Well, tell me now
