Paramore - Tell Me How Lyrics




I can't call you a stranger
But I can't call you
I know you think that I erased you
You may hate me, but I can't hate you
And I won't replace you

Tell me how to feel about you now
Tell me how to feel about you now
Oh oh oh oh, let me know
Do I suffocate or let go?

Think I'm tired of getting over it
And just starting something new again
I'm getting sick of the beginnings
And always coming to your defenses
I guess it's good to get it off my chest
I guess I can't believe I haven't yet
You know I got my own convictions
And they're stronger than any addiction
But no one's winning

Tell me how to feel about you now
Tell me how to feel about you now
Oh oh oh oh, let me know
Do I suffocate or let go?
Tell me how to feel about you now
Tell me how to feel about you now
Oh oh oh oh, let me know
Do I suffocate or let go?

Keep me up with your silence
Take me down with your quiet
Of all the weapons you fight with
Your silence is the most violent

Tell me how to feel about you now
Tell me how to feel about you now
Oh oh oh oh, let me know
Do I suffocate or let go?
Tell me how to feel about you now
Tell me how to feel about you now
Oh oh oh oh, let me know
Do I suffocate or let go?

You don't have to tell me
If you ever think of me
I know you see me dancing
Wildly in the fog of your memory
You don't have to tell me
I can still believe

Paramore Tell Me How Comments
  1. Vini Fbarreto

    Jeremy ... we really miss you 💔

  2. Arya Okazaki

    La amó esta rola ya se acaba 2019 y la seguire escuchando 2020!

  3. Ren

    Do I keep fighting for your attention and love that I so desperately crave or do I let myself free no matter how much I end up crying over you

  4. Emilia Caraline

    i was surprised by the piano.........

  5. Hilfi Harahap

    Miss some rock songs from your 3 albums ... 😔, When u want to turn back?

  6. Markie Burnhope

    I can't listen to this song without crying that many years later

  7. Gannon Thorannos

    Sounds like my relationship now

  8. xavier ayala

    Que triste es ver que las bandas y artistas de rock de hace 10 años, siguen existiendo pero que ya no hacen esa música que tanto gusto.

  9. kate steiger

    I've felt this song in a lot of ways, with multiple people. Friends I out grew, a husband who grows and turns into a different person. But what hits the most is my friend Josh. He hung himself. And how are you supposed to feel about that? "You're silence is the most violent." I beg anyone reading this, if you ever feel alone and worthless and unloved, that you don't make a difference..you do. I promise you do. Please, call someone. Cause every time I see is face in a picture, hear his name, or think of him in any way, the biggest thing in my mind is "Why didn't you call?" You're worth it. PLEASE don't leave people like this.

  10. ninnanaive

    Crying my heart out to this song

  11. Raven Rosales

    Like this for people to feel the music.


    I can't call you a stranger
    But I can't call you
    I know you think that I erased you
    You may hate me but I can't hate you
    And I won't replace you
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?
    Think I'm tired of getting over it
    Just starting something new again
    I'm getting sick of the beginnings
    And always coming to your defences
    I guess it's good to get it off my chest
    I guess I can't believe I haven't yet
    You know I got my own convictions
    And they're stronger than any addiction
    But no one's winning
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?
    You keep me up with your silence
    Take me down with your quiet
    Of all the weapons you fight with

    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?
    You don't have to tell me
    If you ever think of me
    I know you say you're busy
    Wildly, in the fog of your memory
    You don't have to tell me, I can still believe

  12. Björk Rocker

    I just want to say ..I Love This Song

  13. StarLightFire

    Christ, I should have given this album more of chance. So many great songs in one place. I hated it on launch but after a few years of going back, I just love it.

  14. Almost Everything You Need To Know

    Can someone please explain the song?

    Thanks :)

  15. Kurnia Bakti

    I love song

  16. gimmetheteasis

    I’m dealing with a friend breakup right now and this has me with tears in my eyes. Wow.

  17. Mia Cassie

    Paramore never fails to break my heart with their music but then to help pick me right back up again. Their songs capture life in such an accurate way, it includes all the gross, messy parts of it no one really talks about, but they also show that even with all of that that everything will be okay again and you'll learn to live through those moments and you'll come out okay in the end.

  18. zarith aiman

    I still love her even she leave me without any regret 2 years already. She's probably forget about me but I can't forget about her. ❤️

  19. Mia Cassie

    This song hurts like no other. It's truly a masterpiece, I love it.

  20. John Suraco

    IM NOT CRYING YOUR CRYING!

  21. Douglas Amaya

    I like to think that song is about me and the other person. I ruined a friendship that I cherished so much. I can’t let them go though they have. I just want things to go back they way it was. If only you could hear my regret and anxiety, you’d know I miss you.

  22. Sadik

    "You don't have to tell me, I can still believe" - Silence
    The ending is just too much, I can't. I'm most definitely not the crying type, but the ending gets me slightly teared up, it's just too strong.

    matthew baca

    what a way to end an album!!!! gets me every time

  23. Andres Velasquez

    Miss you a lot my friend

  24. Joey Montana

    This should of been a Grammy award winning album and they should have performed this song...... just saying

  25. On JAH

    😭✨

  26. sabaoninja

    this looks like the kind of music that would appear in a Life is Strange game

  27. Emerson Heil

    I just lost my best friend of 12 years over years of difference, miscommunication, and mistakes on both sides, and this song is the only thing that's keeping me even slightly above water. Cause my tears are enough to drown me.

    Sage Downfalls

    I just broke up with my girlfriend and best friend of three years because she no longer had feelings for me. She completely shut me out and nothing hurts worse than losing someone that important to you and not being able to do anything about it.

    Eldios X

    My only advice for you is to keep fighting and being strong

  28. Roah Yasmin

    2019 ~ <3 and dang this is still one of my personal favorites off this album <3 her emotions in this song is so pure ~ <3

  29. Jason Smalls

    [Verse 1]
    I can't call you a stranger
    But I can't call you
    I know you think that I erased you
    You may hate me, but I can't hate you
    And I won't replace you

    [Chorus]
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?

    [Verse 2]
    I think I'm tired of getting over it
    Just starting something new again
    I'm getting sick of the beginnings
    And always coming to your defenses
    I guess it's good to get it off my chest
    I guess I can't believe I haven't yet
    You know I got my own convictions
    And they're stronger than any addiction
    And no one's winning

    [Chorus]
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?


    [Bridge]
    You keep me up with your silence
    Take me down with your quiet
    Of all the weapons you fight with
    Your silence is the most violent

    [Chorus]
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Tell me how to feel about you now
    Oh, let me know
    Do I suffocate or let go?

    [Outro]
    You don't have to tell me
    If you ever think of me
    I know you see me dancing
    Wildly in the fog of your memory
    You don't have to tell me
    I can still believe

  30. latenight cashews

    "i cant call you a stranger


    but i cant call you"


    wow, really stopped me in my tracks.

  31. Samuel Corones

    I love you Hayley

  32. Sarah Williams MUA

    Ahh this song! 😫😫😫♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  33. Ron Miller

    The piano riff sounds almost identical to Colorblind by Counting Crows. That's why this track became an instant favourite of mine when it came out

  34. Joel Birch

    This song when a girl tells you she can’t see you anymore because she thinks she’s not ready for a relationship and she might still have feelings for her daughter’s dad (Ex boyfriend) . After you two have gotten so close...

  35. Joy Langamin

    Youre silence is the most violent. 💔

  36. Joy Langamin

    Youre silence is the most violent. 💔

  37. Jesus Huaraz Rafael

    A truly peace of art. One of the most incredible sad songs I could ever heard to.

  38. Chloé

    you don’t have to tell me, i can still believe...

  39. Markie Burnhope

    life is different now and this song freshly breaks me in 2019

  40. Gianna Silva

    “Out of all the weapons you fight with your silence is the most violent”fuck😭I’m gonna get that as a tattoo

  41. Gianna Silva

    I really can’t decide which album is my favorite anymore they are all so very good idk how people hate after laughter when all the songs on there are good sure it’s a different sound from what you might prefer but it’s paramore and it’s still very good and I just love them and all their albums so much but this song is probably my most favorite of this album

  42. Aninha T

    Essa machucou o peito 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

  43. twinkle_toes 10

    “I know you see me dancing WILDLY in the fog of your memory” 😭

    I mean who couldn’t see Hayley headbanging?

  44. Tony Vilaysack

    This song makes me cry and devastates me for at least half the day

  45. oppaxx45

    One of my favorite songs by them

  46. River Throat

    Pop for the second time. Damn.

    It's not the kind of music I listen to, but it's not bad for most.

  48. rizkidul

    Let's go home. It's started raining

  49. LOLA

    The end though...

  50. Alex Gaeckle

    Personally this song swings both ways for me. I feel like Hailey but I also feel like the person she is talking about.

  51. ari xoxo

    june 2k18 and now april 2k19.

  52. ari xoxo

    9-11 months later and i come back to this song, thinking of my best friends who are fading away from me

  53. itallo bruno Dj Fox

    ja chorei demais ouvindo essa musica nossa !

  54. pioneer mac

    God I love her voice on this album. 😃

  55. Damon Flett

    I remember the first time I listened to this. Didn't like it at first. Over time it grew on me. And now it's one of my most loved albums. Thank you Hailey for creating such great songs that get me through the day.

  56. pedro lz

    Momento para relaxar 😉🎧🎶

  57. Gabriel, Além do Aquário

    This song reminds me of Life Is Strange, it's that same magic and cool vibe

  58. Virginia Rodríguez

    Best song of the album!!

  59. Blue Bell

    WE👏STAN👏QUALITY👏CONTENT👏

  60. ashley nichole

    it is something when you and your lover broke up... but to lose a friend is really damn painful.

  61. The Elder

    I think it is fascinating, to witness Paramore continue to experiment the way they have over the years. "After Laughter" is very innovative. You need to listen to it (like so many fine albums) a few times to fully process it and appreciate it. AL Should have received multiple Grammy nominations. For Hayley and the band, to be so, so young when Paramore was formed`(when they were teenagers), and for them to be so gifted & talented at that point, and then continue in the music industry for many years thereafter is highly unusual. They've been writing, recording and performing music for so long, they are total veterans, and yet they are still very young and in their prime, at the peak of their creative powers! No telling what they will produce next! I say support them in their creative process!

  62. Shelby Hunger

    This touches my soul... My all time fav from Paramore. 😢❤

  63. S!r Alpha- Depression

    God I can't stop replaying this damn song and I keep busting out in tears

  64. Mars

    Por k stoy llorando???

  65. Alice Mattinez

    Nunca sera fácil encontrar al hombre fiel ni al verdadero amor por eso decido dejar todo al tiempo por que cuando ya no esperas nada de nadie el tiempo es tan lindo y te hacerca cosas buenas😘💗💗💗

  66. Vogelkinder

    One of my faves from the album.

  67. flickchic238

    Soon this album and everything in 2017 will just be nostalgia :(

  68. Sunyeya p.

    I can't call you a stranger
    But I can't call you

  69. Epoch The Kid

    This album was fucking intense. Love it

  70. The RIKIS

    Think I’m tired of getting over it

  71. S L O W E D . M P 3

    Miss AL phase...

  72. [theo]ry

    thios is so sad alexa. play hayley donwload instagram again

  73. franky

    At first, I couldn't connect with the album. But as time grew, I'd listen to the album and the lyrics closely in my car. It grew on me, and I realized that every song in the album is something I relate to at an emotional level. This is why I love Paramore.

    Geronimo Cat

    Same here did exact same thing with this one and self titled

  74. Ann Day

    Mi favorita del álbum.

  75. mrsuns10

    There is an emotional nostalgic feel that I get from this song that takes me back to a few weeks in my life.

    It's amazing that music is powerful to make you feel like you are back in a certain place and time

  76. Jonilson Ferreira

    Eu amo tanto essa música... É a minha favorita desse álbum.

  77. Mateus Abrante

    🎸Paramore forever🎸

  78. George Leavitt

    This album sounds amazing, and by far, lyrics-wise, it's my favorite album overall. The instrumental is also really nice, though, as a fan of rock, I have a hard time telling if I love this album or self-titled more.

  79. Pablo Orellana

    📖✏✒🖋🖊🖌🖍📆

  80. Insomnus_

    Another Paramore banger......
    I love how different this is with the piano and softer vocals in comparison to the rest of thier album and everything else they've ever done lol

  81. Michelle Tsurinska

    I dedicate this song to my ex... He was my first love and my bestfriend. He wanted to end our relationship without telling me why and blaming me that I suffocated him.(he had hard times, he puts his anger over me and he didn't want help). Now he is just stranger. And that hurts really bad. Now only AL helped me to go through the pain.

    hakym azizan

    I hope you're okay :'(

  82. Kyla Dupuy Chavez

    I swear Hayley has a voice of an angel.

  83. LisV :3

    Tyler Joseph- "Sometimes quiet is violent"

    Hayley Williams- "Your silence is the most violent"

  84. k lover

    Triste pero buena 😢😄

  85. Emily Breann

    I was in a toxic friendship with my bestfriend and we were so close
    I think our friendship died off because neither of us knew how to love eachother.

    I was tired of the new beginnings of getting in arguments then being best friends again. I ended the friendship and it to this day hurts me this song really explains how I feel and I love it

    Its nice to feel not alone❤

  86. Raimon Ivan

    I hope you somehow get to listen to this song. That's how i feel and i will always wish you the best

  87. Christopher Broadus 12

    Starting over is a lifelong continual process, painful and the way of change

  88. Marcelo Moraes

    It really hurts but this is what Hayley feels.. I'm done with everything too you're not all alone this life won't passing us by

  89. Hello Hello

    Thank you Paramore for finally playing this song live in Nashville. The music is beautiful, the lyrics are powerful and a lot of people around the world can relate and resonate with this song.

  90. Alejandra Ramazzini

    Ufff!!!! 💕💕💕💕☕💞💞💞💞😍😍😍😖👌💞.

  91. Kostas1601

    "and always coming to your defenses"... I thought I was the only one feeling like this. Fuck.
