"Don't" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
Don't walk too close
Don't breathe so soft
Don't talk so sweet
Don't sing
Don't lay oh so near

Please, don't let me fall in love with you again

Please let me forget
All those sweet smiles
All of the passion
All of the heat, the peace, the pain
And all those blue skies
Where your words were my freedom

Please, don't let me fall in love with you again

Too many times
I've cared too much
I stood on the edge
And saw that you held my hand
And knowing too well
I couldn't hide from those eyes

Please, don't let me fall please
Don't let me fall in love with you again

    General CommentAlright, this song is real neat I think. It's about a girl that's trying really hard to get over this guy everything he does makes her fall back in love so she's asking him just to stop doing everything he does, i like it!

    General CommentEveryone has that one person who they love, and just can't let go of, even though they know that person is all wrong for them. This is what this song is about.

    General CommentIt's about that one person who you can't get over. You know you need to let go, but everything they do makes them more lovable to you. Their tiniest action-even breathing- makes you want them all the more. You're pleading with God or even yourself to forget everything you ever loved about him because you know you need to move on. This songs hits home so much. I absolutely love it.

    General CommentI think it's about someone that she knows she should not care about, but is still messing around with. Their relationship is just sex now, but she can't force herself to say no. It's the don't lay so near line that makes me think this. I think she knows the relationship is destructive, but she can't stop.

    General Commenti think this song is about leaving someone who meant so much, someone truely wonderful, but she had to let go for reasons bigger than love."Ive cared too much", means she tried to let go a few times but couldnt because she loved him and she knew he loved her so much.and you know how it is when two people break up and want so bad to remain friends but its dangerous for the first while..with the temptation and what not^_^
