"Don't Tell Me" as written by and Kim Perry....
Tell my heart to stop beating
Tell my mind not to think
Thrown a stone in the ocean
And tell that stone not to sink

Tell the world to stop turnin' around
Tell the sky not to be so blue
Tell the rain to stop fallin' down like tears
But don't tell me to stop loving you
Don't tell me to stop loving you

Tell the past to be forgotten
Tell my life not to exist
Tell a promise made to be unspoken
And my lips not to have been kissed

Tell the world to stop turnin' around
Tell the sky not to be so blue
Tell the rain to stop fallin' down like tears
But don't tell me to stop loving you
Don't tell me to stop loving you

I can't do it, I can't stop
It's something that love has sealed
Only the broken-hearted know the way I feel

Tell the world to stop turnin' around
Tell the sky not to be so blue
Tell the rain to stop fallin' down like tears
But don't tell me to stop loving you
Don't tell me to stop loving you

    General Commentmeans the world to me personally.

    loving someone, honestly, deep down inside; and the other person says not to, or "doesn't understand", or doesn't want to commit, or try to feel it openly and accept it especially if it's foreign to them or something they're not used to in this world these days...

    and you can have that person tell you all of those things, go ahead, tell my heart to stop beating, of if i think too much to "just stop", and like it says - tell a stone not to sink... well, you can't make me stop loving... you...

    (dedicated to bumbi, who i pray every night will open her eyes and understand that a simple and sweet love could exist one day no matter what everyone around her says or what cancerous relationships she's seen and gotten used to in the past. 403)
