I Don't Want To Hear Anymore

Album: Long Road Out Of Eden (2007)
  • It's not the first time
    That I've had the sense that something's wrong
    But I'm old enough to know
    That things don't always work out like they should
    I know you're tryin' hard
    To break it gently to me, now
    But there's no easy way
    To tell it like it is, so baby...

    I don't want to hear any more
    You don't need to tell me it's over
    I've been here before

    I've seen that look before
    I know it well; it comes as no surprise
    You've been avoiding me
    But now you want to talk it over
    Before you take my hand
    And tell me softly in a whisper
    There's no need to explain
    I've read the book; I know how this all ends

    I don't want to hear any more
    You don't need to tell me it's over
    I've been here before

    I won't ask you to stay
    I won't stand in your way
    Look me right in the eyes
    Let me walk away with my head high

    If there's some other guy
    I don't need to know why

    But I don't want to hear any more
    You don't need to tell me it's over
    I've been here before

    I won't ask you to stay
    I won't stand in your way
    And I don't want to hear any more
    No, no, baby
    I don't want to hear any more
