Don't Tell Me 

 

Verse 1

When we first met

There was a fire

Between us

And those images

Of our desire

Promised sweet love

I watched what happened

As you changed on me

Who is this person

You turned out to be

 

Chorus:

Don’t tell me that you want me

When you lie to me so endlessly

Don’t tell me you’ll be with me

When you plan to leave me lonely

Don't tell me that you love me

Don't say those words that you really don't mean

Don't tell me

I'm not a fool, I won't believe

What you tell me

 

Verse 2

I don’t understand

I really cared for you

My love was true

I remember when

I first met you

When we were new

And from the start

I gave you my heart

Why’d you do this to me

It hurt me deep

 

Chorus:

Don’t tell me that you want me

When you lie to me so endlessly

Don’t tell me that you’ll be with me

When you plan to leave me lonely

Don't tell me that you love me

Don't say those words that you really don't mean

Don't tell me

I'm not a fool, I won't believe

What you tell me

  

Bridge

I will be strong through this pain

I will move on to another day

I won't stay down or settle for less

I know my worth, I deserve the best

I will find a love that's honest with me, so..........

 

Chorus:

Don’t tell me that you want me

When you lie to me so easily

Don’t tell me that you’ll be with me

When you plan to leave me lonely

Don't tell me that you love me

Don't say those words that you really don't mean

Don't tell me

I'm not a fool, I won't believe

What you tell me
