Don't Want To Know

you close your eyes
but you’re not asleep
on the rise, the bluff
up on lover’s leap

you cover your ears
but you still hear a voice
you can quiet your fears
while you still got a choice

I don’t really want to know
I don’t really need your say so
I don’t really want to know
I just want to paint a day-glo night

you shut your lips
but the word still forms
until out it comes
but the blood still warms
you bite your tongue
‘cause it seems such a waste
when you’re so damned young
gotta get you a taste

I don’t really want to know
I don’t really want to lay low
I don’t really want to know
I just want to paint a day-glo night

gonna feel the pull
you’re gonna feel the squeeze
you go light in the head
you go weak in the knees
I’ll spell it out for you
a four-letter disease

you got a feel
but you got no defenses
it’s too damned real
when you come to your senses

you got no clues
not too sure what this dance is
but you pays your dues
and you takes your chances

I don’t really want to know
I don’t really want to go slow
I don’t really want to know
'cause it’s just one hell of a way to go

I don’t really want to know
I don’t really want to know
I don’t really want to know
I don’t really want to know
