​Don't Speak of My Heart

This song is by Gerry Rafferty and appears on the album On A Wing And A Prayer (1992) and on the album Life Goes On (2009).

Don't speak of my heart, it hurts too much -- hurts to touch
I'm writing the book each and every day
Take a look at my face, I still need -- I still bleed
I've been running on empty since you went away.

The spirit world looks down on us
Sad that we're apart
So please don't speak of my heart.

Whenever we talk she says hang on -- just hang on
Meanwhile I'm drowning in the pouring rain
And each time we meet there's a sad farewell -- sad farewell
She tells me someday I'm gonna love again.

The way that she walked out on me
Still tears me apart
So please don't speak of my heart.

Every day's an endless maze of dreams that fade and die
No one believed we were saying 'Goodbye'
And every night I think of you I'm still left wondering why
I can't believe that we're saying goodbye.

And when I wake up in the morning
And wonder where I'm going to
It all came without a warning
What's a man supposed to do?

Don't let your heart break down
Don't let your heart break down.

Don't speak of my heart, it hurts too much -- it hurts to touch
I'm writing the book each and every day
Take a look at my face, I still need -- I still bleed
I've been running on empty since you went away.

The spirit world looks down on us,
Sad that we're apart
Don't wanna talk about it -- don't make me think about it
So please don't speak of my heart.
