"Don't Speak (early demo)" as written by and Eric Stefani Gwen Stefani....
You and me
We used to be together
Everyday together always
I really feel
That I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe
This could be the end
It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real
Well I don't want to know

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Our memories
Well, they can be inviting
But some are altogether
Mighty frightening
As we die, both you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts (no, no, no)
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are
You and me I can see us dying, are we?

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts (no, no, no)
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
And I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts!
I know what you're saying
So please stop explaining

Don't speak
Don't speak
Don't speak
Oh I know what you're thinking
And I don't need your reasons
I know you're good
I know you're good
I know you're real good
Oh, la la la la la la, la la la la la la
Don't, don't, uh-huh hush, hush darlin'
Hush, hush darlin' hush, hush
Don't tell me tell me 'cause it hurts
Hush, hush darlin' hush, hush darlin'
Hush, hush don't tell me tell me 'cause it hurts

    General CommentI really like this version. It's really beautiful. I might even like it better than the current "Don't Speak"

    General CommentVery good demo.

    I collect No Doubt rarities and found this one some years ago. I actually have the Storytellers demo (quite clean recorded, but only 1.20) and a longer 'Live Early Demo', which is badly recorded and has much screaming from the audience through it. Lyrics differ a bit, too.

    But again, great start for a song that shook the earth (and my world) long ago ;-)

    General CommentI can see it all in an eyeblink
    I know everything about how you are
    I can understand exactly how you think
    Between you and me it's not very far
    Side by side, you and I
    With many many years behind us
    You let words pass us by
    Because we're always together
    And we will be forever
    Such a special treasure, you and I

    **favorite lines too beautiful!
