Lyrics

Don't say it Girl

Written By: JR Teller

Girl when we first met, it was perfect,
Our eyes met and I knew that you were worth it,
A gorgeous smile tight body and a nice set,
You were a queen I was a heartbroken fool yet,
Putting a face on it,
Surface looking cool,
Underneath it mood shifting geographical,
Cos I’m a walkin mess
Pain runs too deep to stress,
Now the darkness got me blind to what is for the best

Don’t play with my heart,
Don’t say it girl,
I don’t want complicated,
Cos love is over rated,
I can’t get over you,
Even though these feelings ain’t true

Now we’re sat here facing,
Each other eyes are gazing,
You’re wanting more from me and searchin like there’s more to see,
Inside I’m scared cos I’m tryin but I’m unprepared,
I’m such a wreck deep down my heart feels like it’s lost its crown,
The only me that you knows masked by the Fred and Hugo,
I’m so confusing,
This path I’m choosing,
I’m lyin to myself so much I don’t know what the truth is,
I feel I’ve aged so much I couldn’t tell you where my youth is

Don’t play with my heart,
Don’t say it girl,
I don’t want complicated,
Cos love is over rated,
I can’t get over you,
Even though these feelings ain’t true
Don’t play with my heart,
Don’t say it girl,
I don’t want complicated,
Cos love is over rated,
I can’t get over you,
Even though these feelings ain’t true

Don’t tell me that girl, doesn’t feel right,
Don’t make it hard for me now,
I can’t keep up the fight,
Don’t need no wifey now girl,
You say in time I might,
But this feels wrong, my armours strong and I just got to lay it down

Now tension takes the floor,
I never wanted more,
Cos what happened before,
Troubled me to the core,
I feel you lookin deep, like you’re soul searchin,
And when you speak you represent like a spokesperson,
I know you’re perfect, a revolution,
Like all that’s special in the world united in a fusion,
And yet I’m frozen now, when I go to talk,
My head is writing poems but my mouth can’t make the walk

Don’t play with my heart,
Don’t say it girl,
I don’t want complicated,
Cos love is over rated,
I can’t get over you,
Even though these feelings ain’t true
Don’t play with my heart,
Don’t say it girl,
I don’t want complicated,
Cos love is over rated,
I can’t get over you,
Even though these feelings ain’t true
