"Don't Say No" as written by and Patrick Wolf....
I used to say just follow your heart
But my heart always led me in circles
and i used to say just follow your dreams
but my dreams always led me to murder

so now i don't say nothing at all
i just bow my head to the battle
a thousand miles above our heads
they are weaving
giant currents around the sun
if you're brave enough you'll just let it happen
if youre brave enough you'll just succumb

Dont say no to it
You cant say no to it

just throw yourself in
just give yourself in
to the pattern

a thousand miles above our heads
they are bleeding
mighty currents uopn the day
if youre brave enough you'll just let it happen
if youre brave enough you'll give yourself away

Dont say no to it!
You cant say no to it!

    General CommentThis is also the first song I ever heard of Mr.Wolfs.

    When my love for this song dies, my love for many other things will die with it. My relationship with this song involves loads of other aspects of my life. As my love for this song grows, so does my love for other things.

    Patrick Wolf revives my love for music.

    I used to say just follow your heart
    But my heart always led me in circles.
    I love this song with every inch of me.

    General CommentYou are a soppy bunch aren't you? Surely this song is about forced sex.

    General CommentInteresting theory Matt!

    There is something about his eerie style of singing in this song, that suggests you could have a valid point, in the bold statement you made.

    General CommentWell, this wasn't my first song of his. Was the Libertine. But this song is beautiful.. I love how the beginning with "I used to say folow your heart.." with the, well, heart beat beat.. which turns into dancier drum beat. Patrick Wolf, and his music, is beautiful.
