NEVER TELL

When the truth lies within and I won’t leave without
No I don’t want to go without an answer
If you’re afraid of the word and of your thoughts being heard
you are not the one to share my finest hours

Don’t pretend, never tell the wind that you’re lonely
cause it might carry all your secrets back to me again
Don’t you know the world has changed
you’re not man enough to say I need you
If you can’t trust a woman’s heart you’d better leave
(find your way alone)

On your island in the sun there you hide in your shell
you don’t owe no explanation to anyone
There’s no me to care for you whatever you will do
maybe then you might be happy for a little while

Don’t you ever call my name, never tell the wind that you’re lonely
cause it might carry all your secrets back to me again
Don’t you know the world has changed
you’re not man enough to say I need you
If you can’t trust a woman’s heart you’d better be – on your own
