A song in which a lover doesn't want to hear what's really going on: secret lovers, that she's leaving him...


Copyright 2009 Guitar Mal

don't tell me about a thing
not just anything
don't tell me about your life
I can't take it

tell me 'bout the good times
times when we laughed and cried
just tell me about our love
yes tell me it's good

remember when we told each other
the truth and secrets of total lovers
nothing hidden nothing to hide
living deeply each others lives

remember when we came and went
so young so innocent
two people living a dream
now it all seems so unreal

don't tell me your secrets
don't tell me all your lies
don't tell me about last night
I can't take it, I can't take it at all

don't tell me that you're moving out
that you're going to be moving house
some more distance, some more disguise
that I'm evil in your eyes

don't tell me that you're getting rid
of all the things that we ever did
going off in another guise
moving in with some other guys

don't tell me you're leaving me
don't tell me I can't see
don't tell me you're moving on
I can't take it...

you can't take it all from me
