"Dont Tell Me" as written by Kyle Falconer and Kieren Webster....
I don't know what I have done,
But I'm sure I will in the next five seconds,
You see I have a telephone,
When people call they don't stop ringing for me,

Last night was as mystery,
So the words can create a picture for my mind to see,
Pictures seem to make me sweat,
Something in the morning my sisters told me I would regret.

Refuse to believe what you just told me,
Refuse to believe till you tell me slowly,
Or bring me down gradually.

Aremsee he under-stands,
He's not afraid to tell me about my late night shenanigans,
See I was put here for the world to see,
You can't tell me where I'm going or tell me who I'd like to be,

I don't intend to stop my drinkin',
I know I should and it's clever thinkin',
But don't tell me...

I don't know what I have done, but I'm sure I will,
In the next five seconds,
You see I have a telephone,
And when people call they don't stop ringing for me.

Things they change as you get older,
No longer a devil on each shoulder,
But please, please, please... don't tell me.

    General Commentgreat song this, love it
    i reckon its about the press coverage Kyle Falconer got (and gets) with every slghtly wrong (wrong, illegal its all the same...) thing he does
    and he basically doesn't really want to know about it
    thats it i thinks

    General CommentI've been told that this song is about one morning when kyle woke up in bed with a 40 year old woman.
    kinda makes sense

    General Commentseems to me to be about having a night out and waking up not remembering the stupid things you done and your mates phone you and tell yer.

    General Commenti got to agree with mally1. it's about getting wasted and the next morning you can't remember a thing. but when your mates tell you what embarassing stuff you've done, you wish you wouldn't know or remember.
    over all his attitude is like: alcohol is evil, but hey..
    a song I can definitly relate to..

    General Commenti agree with agneishd the line "See I was put here for the world to see" kind of leads to that conclusion.
