Gwen Stefani Don't Speak Lyrics

Last updated: 04/03/2011 11:00:00 AM

You and me
We used to be together
Every day together, always

I really feel...
That I'm losing, my best friend
I can't believe this could be the end...

It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real
Well I don't want to know

[CHORUS]
Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Old memories
They can be inviting
But some are all together
Mighty frightening

As we die both you and I
With my head in my hands I sit and cry

[CHORUS]

It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are...

[INSTRUMENTAL]

You and me
I can see us dying...are we?

[CHORUS]


I know you're good, I know you're good, I know you're real good !

lalalala,lalalala
Don't Don't
Oeoew-oeoew-oeoew

Hush hush darling, hush hush darling,hush hush
Don't tell me cause it hurts

Hush hush darlin, hush hush darling,hush hush
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

losing a friend. | Reviewer: alanna harley | 4/2/11

i like this song. Pretty lovely <3 i loved how Gwen had that simple look going on and at the same time look stunning. I like that effortless look.

She's probably singing about her break up with the bassist. In my humble opinion this song in about losing a friend that you always confided in.. maybe ego gets in the way... maybe the friend or the bassist felt over shadowed & that's when the relationship died down... & she doesnt want to hear him explain to her that they're not close anymore. That things changed.... or something.



deep meaning. | Reviewer: Zach | 7/30/07

This song has such a powerful meaning to it.It's a song that i can relate to.I've always been a fan of Gwens and all of her work.But this song seems to mean something extra special to me.I can't stop listening to it.These lyrics are going through my head..Losing a close friend is sad.But this song makes it easier to deal with it.This is going to be my theme song for the first few weeks when i begin highschool.I lost a close friend this summer.I can't imagine life without her.But atlest i found a cool song to listen to.Maybe i should buy it as a ringback tone on my cell phone for her so that she can hear it when she leaves me hatemail:]
