I'm curious to know exactly how you are
I keep my distance but that distance is too far
It reassures me just to know that you're okay
But I don't want you to go on needing me this way


And I don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't wanna know if you are less than lonely
Don't wanna know if you are lonely
Don't wanna know if you are less than...


The day you left me, left me feeling oh so bad
Still I'm not sure about all the doubts that we had
From the beginning we both knew it wouldn't last
Decisions have been made, the dye has been cast


And I don't want to know if you are lonely
Don't wanna know if you are less than lonely
Don't wanna know if you are lonely
Don't wanna know, don't want to know
Don't wanna know


The phone is ringing and the clock says four A.M.
If it's your friends, well I don't want to hear from them
Please leave your number and a message at the tone
Or you can just go on and leave me alone

And I don't wanna know if you are lonely
Don't wanna know if you are less than lonely
Don't wanna know if you are lonely
Don't wanna know...

    General CommentIf you people think this is a green day song, you obviously know nothing about kick ass music. Husker Du is one of the greatest bands ever and Green Day don't do them any justice!!!
    Check out Husker Du's music....you won't be disappointed.
