Don't Speak Lyrics

You and me
We used to be together
Every day together, always

I really feel that I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe this could be the end

It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real, well I don't want to know

    Its basically saying that she knows that the relationship is over, but she dosen't need the reassurance or the confirmation.The thought of the relationship being done is already enough pain for her to deal with. So its not the knowledge that hurts the most, but the affirmative action.

    The second verse can also be used to owning up to John over sinta bar speaking up out loud coursing the question if this could be the end because this the lady doesn't want to hear by saying don't speak the lady can guess so she doesn't want to know it harts and the lyric gets repeated five times the last push is repeated fivetimes diing that's aluding ann Marie Milligan five times di in Dine lay is always in then two more repeates of push these are questions and asking John am i going to be fine but misheard as dying

    What a coincidence, a narcissist played this song too at the gym earlier, confirming an ending. We dont speak to each other. I was playing songs on my playlist, accdg to what I like to hear and not what I feel. I have a feeling that she was thinking that the song I played "creep" was for her. Haha, it wasn't for u, I just like the song.

    Confirmation of a painful ending, silence between each other. No one wants to come near each other. She played this song today at the gym. - it's really over and both are hurt.

    There are times when we say that "silence is golden". You'll be better when you say nothing at all.

    Whatever you said to me, broke my heart, i will always love you..its written.

    A girl once dumped me and told me to listen to this song. I just got around to it. I think I get it now.
