I don't know
How to feel
Let the words
Come easily to me
You seem lost
In your thoughts
I find it hard to breathe
Why won't you tell me what it is?
It's driving me crazy trying to
Second guess you

Don't say you love me
I don't believe it
Don't say the words
If you don't mean it
Don't want to hear it
Out in the open
Keep it inside
If you don't mean it

Don't even want to talk about it
I know that I can live without it

If it's right
If it's wrong
Would someone let me know?
It's a game
I can't play
Do I just let you go?
Maybe it's just the way it is
Cos I get the feeling that you
Know it's over

Don't say you love me
I don't believe it
Don't say the words
If you don't mean it
Don't want to hear it
Out in the open
Keep it inside
If you don't mean it

Don't even want to talk about it
I know that I could live without it
I just don't want to talk about it
God knows I could live without it

(If you don't mean it)
(You gotta let me know)

Don't say you love me
I don't believe it
Don't say the words
If you don't mean it
Don't want to hear it
Out in the open
Just take it back
If you don't mean it

Don't say you love me
I don't believe it
Don't say the words
If you don't mean it
Don't want to hear it
How you feel...
How you feel...

    General Commenti think this song is okay, the verses canm really annoy me some days, but the chorus is good. one problem it that the chorus is so quiet. its good enough, but i can barely hear it! its like the verses biuld up to something that just doesn't reach the essential "chorus peak"

    i think deans a pretty good singer, he isn't all just pure good looks (but those matter too =) otherwise he wouldn't have got so far in Aussie Idol. maybe i'm a lil biased, seeing as my best friend knows him sooooo well since he moved from South Africa, and i've been told his whole life story practically . . .

    well, thats my opinion!

    General Commentyer the song is pretty cool and i like it...but it doesnt really do it for me. the song is catchy so i like it but for a 'meaningful' song it lacks a bit of punch im thinkin

    General CommentI'd have to agree with *nemelcy*, for some reason this song can get a bit annoying but I do really like it and while its not hugely deep, I think there's a good message to it. People tend to say "I love you" way too quickly in a relationship and when they don't really mean it. I love (lol) the lines "Don't even want to talk about it, I know that I could live without it" because you can definitely live without it if they don't mean it! That just hurts way more than if they never end up saying it.

    Girls-watch out for guys who say it just to make you trust them and think that it'll get you to go further physically...

    Make saying "I love you" special, meaningful and selfless

    General CommentMy ex said "I love you" after knowing him for 2 weeks. Scared me a lot cause it was way too soon. He had even told all his mates I was his girlfriend after two days of meeting him. Then just a week after saying I love you, he buggered off to queensland and didnt even call.

    Anyway, I didnt really like this song at first, but after listening to it and the lyrics I understand it more and now i love it. But i do agree that its kind of annoying musically. Needless to say we broke up. But he's back and still in love with me... apparently... i dont know if he means it or not.
