No Doubt

Don't Speak

Lyrics

playYou and me
playWe used to be together
playEveryday together always
playI really feel
playThat I'm losing my best friend
playI can't believe
playThis could be the end
playIt looks as though you're letting go
playAnd if it's real
playWell I don't want to know

playDon't speak
playI know just what you're saying
playSo please stop explaining
playDon't tell me cause it hurts
playDon't speak
playI know what you're thinking
playI don't need your reasons
playDon't tell me cause it hurts

playOur memories
playWell, they can be inviting
playBut some are altogether
playmighty frightening
playAs we die, both you and I
playWith my head in my hands
playI sit and cry

playDon't speak
playI know just what you're saying
playSo please stop explaining
playDon't tell me cause it hurts (no, no, no)
playDon't speak
playI know what you're thinking
playI don't need your reasons
playDon't tell me cause it hurts

playIt's all ending
playI gotta stop pretending who we are...
playYou and me I can see us dying...are we?

playDon't speak
playI know just what you're saying
playSo please stop explaining
playDon't tell me cause it hurts (no, no, no)
playDon't speak
playI know what you're thinking
playI don't need your reasons
playDon't tell me cause it hurts
playDon't tell me cause it hurts!
playI know what you're saying
playSo please stop explaining

playDon't speak,
playdon't speak,
playdon't speak,
playoh I know what you're thinking
playAnd I don't need your reasons
playI know you're good,
playI know you're good,
playI know you're real good

playOh, la la la la la la La la la la la la
playDon't, Don't, uh-huh Hush, hush darlin'
playHush, hush darlin' Hush, hush
playdon't tell me tell me cause it hurts
playHush, hush darlin' Hush, hush darlin'
playHush, hush don't tell me tell me cause it hurts
