"Haley" as written by and William Rinehart Nathanial Rinehart....
If you don't know just how you feel
Don't say those sweet things
That you know I'd wanna hear

If you don't know just what to think
Then put your thoughts away
And keep them out of reach

Haley don't hurt me if you don't know
I could have moved on long time ago
You're undecided, your eyes do show
Haley don't hurt me if you don't know

If you don't know just where we are
Then slowly step away before we get too far
If you don't know just where you stand
Don't brace a fall that you may never want to land

Haley don't hurt me if you don't know
I could have moved on long time ago
You're undecided, your eyes do show
Haley don't hurt me if you don't know

We're on and off again
It's more than I can stand
Just let me know if you're for real this time
Your voice, it shook again
Reminded me of when
We talked our way into the end

Haley don't hurt me if you don't know
I could have moved on long time ago
You're undecided, your eyes do show
Haley don't hurt me if you don't know

    General Commentmy name is hailey, and my boyfriend once sang these lyrics to me when we were in a fight and on the verge of breaking up. it really described some of the problems he had with the way i teased him and the way we kept flitting around going on and off in our relationship.

    General CommentHey,
    My name is actually spelled the same as the song. whenever i hear this song it reminds me of an ex boyfriend that could never seem to get over me. i still feel terrible about all the lying that we did and im glad that he didnt find this song before i did.

    General CommentIt's about people having trouble in their relationship- being on and off the whole time. The guy is saying that he really cares about her, but that she needs to decide what she wants from their relationship once and for all because all the indecision is hurting him and if she isn't going to stick at it, he could be moving on and starting to try and get over her. If she is only going to choose not to stay with him, he would rather that she didn't lead him on and make him think that she cares when she doesn't really....because it's only hurting him and making everything worse. It's really sad :(
    He can do better than stupid Haley though!!!
