"Ain't No Doubt" as written by Guy Pratt, Charlie Dore, Jimmy Nail and Danny Schogger....
She says "It's not you - it's me
I need a little time, a little space
a place to find myself again
you know?"
Oh yes, I know a goodbye when I hear it
She smiles but her heart's already out there
Walking down the street

She says
"I don't want nobody else
I love you", She's lying
"There won't be somebody else
and that's true", She's lying
"say you'll always be my friend
sweet darling"
Why does she pretend?
Ain't no doubt, it's plain to see
A woman like you's no good for me
Your heart's beating at another door
I'm a done fool for to ask for more

She says "It's like in a song, remember?
If you love someone, set them free
Well, that's how it is for me"
And then she kisses me
and somewhere I hear a door slam
So I say "fine"
And just hope that I'm a better liar than she is

    General Comment"Ain't No Doubt" is a popular song by Jimmy Nail. Composed by Nail with Guy Pratt, Danny Schogger and Charlie Dore, the song features additional vocals by Sylvia Mason-James. Six years after his debut album, Nail revived his singing career during the success of his television drama series Spender.The lyrics discuss a failing relationship, and the difference between her words and what he believes she means. In the first verse, like in the second, Jimmy Nail provides the females line, by saying; "She says 'it's not you, it's me'", a statement which is cliched in break-ups and is usually considered to be a white lie.
    During the lyrics sung by Sylvia Mason-James in the first part of the chorus, phrases such as "I don't want nobody else, I love you", and "there won't be somebody else, and that's true", Jimmy Nail interjects with "she's lying". This line, like many others is simply spoken, not sung.
    The second part of the chorus claims that there "Ain't no doubt" that a "woman like you is no good for me".
    The second verse has Jimmy Nail speaking the lines of the female character once more; "she says 'it's like in the song, remember? If you love somebody, set them free?'" After he describes her speech, he says "and then she kisses me, and somewhere I hear a door slam. So I say 'fine', and just hope that I'm a better liar than she is," exploring the idea that while she lies in order to try and keep from hurting him, he does so in order to 'prove' he doesn't care and to hopefully hurt her in return.
