Spare Me The Details

  • My girlfriend, my dumb donut
    Went up to a party just the other night
    But three hours later and seven shots of yager
    She was in the bedroom with another guy

    And I don't really want to know
    So don't tell me anymore
    And I don't really want to hear
    About your feet all up in the air

    And well I'm not the one who acted like a hoe
    Why must I be the one who has to know?
    I'm not the one who messed up big time
    So spare me the details if you don't mind

    Now I can understand friends who want to tell me
    They think they're gonna help me, open up my eyes
    But the play by play makes me want to lose it
    Everytime you do it man, it turns the knife

    And I don't really want to know
    So don't tell me anymore
    And I don't really want to hear
    About your feet all up in the air

    And well I'm not the one who acted like a hoe
    Why must I be the one who has to know?
    I'm not the one who messed up big time
    So spare me the details if you don't mind

    Now I don't need to hear about the sounds they were makin'
    Every time you can hear about how long it was takin'
    Or how the walls they were shakin'

    Now lying in bed wallowing in sorrow
    Missin' the tomorrow that we could of had
    Running through my head, over and over
    Things I never told her that just made me sad

    And it drives me insane sittin with a vision
    Stuck with that image burned into my brain
    And it feels so dumb that I could ever trust her
    When someone else fucked her, then walked away

    And I don't really want to know
    So don't tell me anymore
    And I don't really want to hear
    About her feet all up in the air

    And so I'm not the one who acted like a hoe
    Why must I be the one who has to know?
    I'm not the one who messed up big time
    So spare me the details if you don't mind

    'cause I don't want to know
    Don't want to know
    (Spare me the details if you don't mind)
    Don't want to know
    (Spare me the details if you don't mind)
    Don't want to know... Writer/s: Bryan Keith Holland
