1. Don't write to me any more
It just makes me sad when I see your hand
I didn't know this would be so far away.
Don't call me up on the phone
I don't need to hear that you miss me too
It just makes it harder to be here without you.
Don't want to know that you've been blue
Don't want to think of me and you.
2. Don't let me think any more
It just makes me sad when I think of how
I could have known you so well and not understand
That love comes around on its own
There's no way to make yourself feel that way
And no way to make yourself feel anything less
Don't want to know that you remember
Don't want to feel this way forever.
3. So, don't write to me any more
I want to forget what a fool I've been.
