Lyrics

When you turn your head away
It stops me in my tracks
Without making a sound,
You say a hell of a lot,
Falling starts, cold shoulder
And here we go again,
I'd like to speak my mind
But you don't seem to care

Don't turn your head
(Hear me Catherine)
Don't turn your head
(Listen to me)
Don't turn your head
(Hear me Catherine)
'Cause I'm not coming back.

Lonesome nights spent together
And doing what we're told.
Buzz-kill cellular phone bill
With strange area codes.
Off again, gone to see him
But I won't lock the door
It's not worth a fight anymore
Indifference equals death.

Don't turn your head
(Hear me Catherine)
Don't turn your head
(Listen to me)
Don't turn your head
(Hear me Catherine)
'Cause I'm not coming back.

Well let's go back to a time when we were intense
Naked in blue moonlight and sharing more than a bed.

Falling star, love goes so far
And crashes to the ground.
Like little kids we're trapped by what's hidden
Scared of all we don't know.
Turn me out, first tell me about
All that I did wrong
Leave here tonight, to hold him tight
And I'm running out the door.

Don't turn your head
(Hear me Catherine)
Don't turn your head
(Listen to me)
Don't turn your head
(Hear me Catherine)
'Cause I'm not coming back.
I'm not coming back,
I'm not coming back.
I'm not coming back.
