Lyrics

I don't want to see you again.
I hear that love is planned,
How can I understand,
When someone says to me,

"I don't want to see you again."?
Why do I cry at night?
Something wrong could be right.
I hear you say to me,

"I don't want to see you again."
As you turned your back to me,
You hid the light of day.
I didn't have to play,

At being broken hearted.
I know that later on,
After love's been and gone,
I'd still hear someone say,

"I don't want to see you again."

As you turned your back on me,
You hid the light of day.
I didn't have to play,
At being broken hearted.

I hear that love is planned,
How can I understand,
When someone says to me,
"I don't want to see you again."?
I don't want to see you again.
