Song Lyrics Sunday: Listen

Helen gives us another great prompt today with lots of songs to choose from. I picked “I Don’t Wanna Talk About It,” an old fave from an old fave, Rod Stewart. The video I linked though is new, a duet with someone named Amy Bell. Never heard of her before, but they are fab together on this song. Enjoy!

The lyrics were actually written by Danny Whitten of Crazy Horse and recorded first by them in 1971. Rod had a big hit with it in 1977.

I can tell by your eyes
That you’ve probably been crying forever
And the stars in the sky
Don’t mean nothing to you they’re a mirror
I don’t wanna talk about it
How you broke my heart
If I stay here just a little bit longer
If I stay here won’t you listen to my heart
My heart
If I stand all alone
Will the shadows hide the color of my heart
Will they be blue for the tears
Black for the nights we spent apart
And the stars don’t mean nothing to you
They’re a mirror
I don’t wanna talk about it
How you broke my heart
Oh if I stay, if I stay here
Won’t you listen to my heart

  2. Wow, this poast looks so different if you visit my blog on the web as opposed to the app. Ugh.


    • There, I fixed the quote block. God, I hate when I cut & paste to steal other people’s text & the original formatting has the audacity to PERSIST in my nice clean poast. Mad mad mad. But why won’t my YouTube lynx preview like they used to? I copy to share them the same way I always have. So much MAD.


  3. I remember this beautiful ballad. So romantic!
