Don't Speak of My Heart Lyrics - Gerry Rafferty

Review The Song (2)



Don’t speak of my heart, it hurts too much -- hurts to touch
I’m writing the book each and every day
Take a look at my face, I still need -- I still bleed
I’ve been running on empty since you went away.

The spirit world looks down on us
Sad that we’re apart
So please don’t speak of my heart.

Whenever we talk she says hang on -- just hang on
Meanwhile I’m drowning in the pouring rain
And each time we meet there’s a sad farewell -- sad farewell
She tells me someday I’m gonna love again.

The way that she walked out on me
Still tears me apart
So please don’t speak of my heart.

Every day’s an endless maze of dreams that fade and die
No one believed we were saying ‘Goodbye’

And every night I think of you I’m still left wondering why
I can’t believe that we’re saying goodbye.

And when I wake up in the morning
And wonder where I’m going to
It all came without a warning
What’s a man supposed to do?

Don’t let your heart break down
Don’t let your heart break down.

Don’t speak of my heart, it hurts too much -- it hurts to touch
I’m writing the book each and every day
Take a look at my face, I still need -- I still bleed
I’ve been running on empty since you went away.

The spirit world looks down on us,
Sad that we’re apart
Don’t wanna talk about it -- don’t make me think about it
So please don’t speak of my heart.

This can only have been written by someone who has experienced a great loss such as a breakup of a relationship. The feelings come from the heart. I wonder if Gerry Rafferty is speaking from experience?

Thank you | Reviewer: Mandy | 4/14/2005

I lost the love of my life on Tuesday night. A little cat called Kimba Boh who had filled the last 15 years of my life with such love and loyalty her passing was hard to bear. The morning after I rose from my bed and in a maelstrom of grief, tuned into Radio 2 in the hope of distraction and something perhaps that would soothe my pain. "Don't speak of mt heart" was playing, and it filled me with something I truly cannot put into words. But it was touching, the lyrics were stirring,and the song itself was so appropriate. Thank you Jerry Rafferty, despite not knowing what you have done!
I would reccommend this song to anyone in need of comfort. It truly touched my heart.
