"Just Ain't Gonna Work Out" as written by and Andrew M Cohen....
Don't wanna see your tears
Baby it'll be OK
Don't wanna see you cry darlin'
No way! (ooh)
But it just don't feel the same
(Just don't feel the same)
I know what you're about
(I know what you're about)
And I guess that I don't love you anymore
And I'm sorry, but it just ain't working out

I'm sorry it just ain't gonna work out
(Just ain't gonna work out girl)

I'm sorry it just ain't gonna work out
(Just ain't gonna work out girl)

Don't want you to be sad girl
Don't want you to be afraid
I know that will you understand my ways
One day! (ooh)
No need to be upset girl
(You just don't understand)
Please don't scream and shout
(Please don't scream and shout)
I know that you were hearing wedding bells
But I'm sorry
'Cause it just ain't working out

I'm sorry it just ain't gonna work out
(Just ain't gonna work out girl)

I'm sorry it just ain't gonna work out
(Just ain't gonna work out girl)

    My OpinionCan´t belive nobody posted yet!
    Great song, excellent band
    I think the meaning is clear, a guy who´s breaking up with a girl, a nice girl but the doesn´t love her, so he can´t do anything but break up, even when the´ve been together for a long time (I know that you were hearing wedding bells)

    This song reminds me spandau ballet´s true, i don´t know what u think

    MemoryGod, I had a buddy who used this song to break up with someone. Won him some major "you got a shit load of balls" points, I'll give him that. Also won him a beating from a pack of ravenous women. Though personally, if I were the lady I'd be laughing the entire time---pissed, but laughing.

    Anyway, yes it is quite clear what this song is about. I love every bit of this song, but I gotta say, my favorite part has to be his little opening in the beginning, when he says: "You know baby, I know you think we can make it all work out, but I gotta tell it like it is, I don't wanna make this any harder than it needs to be, so don't cry." oh god, that's beautiful.
