"I Don't Wanna Talk About It Now" as written by Emmylou Harris, Jill Cunniff and Daryl Johnson....
God knows how I love you
Like a user needs a drug
And I'll never be free of ya
You are poison in my blood
I tried to swim that river
And get to higher ground
I been three times under
The next one'll see me drown

But I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I want to go down

God knows why you don't want me
No one would do the things I do
But to my grave it's gonna haunt me
How I got down on my knees for you
You are my obsession
And the reason that I live
You alreday got my soul
There's nothin left to give

But I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I want to go down

The devil is deep water baby
And I'm in way over my head
But I'd be drawn and quartered
If I could keep you in my bed
I can't break this spell
I know the trouble that I'm in
But If I got out of the mouth of hell
I'd walk right back again

But I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I don't want to talk about it now
I want to go down

    General CommentI just love this song. The production is gritty, down and dirty and just gorgeous, and Emmylou's voice in its mournful mode is perfection. I very much doubt that this is what the song is about, but every time I hear it my fiendish brain makes me think of oral sex... "I got down on my knees for you", "I wanna go down", "No one would do the things I do"... or maybe it IS????
