Ray Charles – Say No More lyrics

(Ronnie Bird / Pierre Papadiamadis)
Say no more
I think you'll never understand
I have refused the same demand
All my life!
Say no more
In my book there can be no blame
When you pretend I have no shame
You're half right!
All along
You kept trying to pin me down
Turn me into your house clown...
If I don't fit the bill...
All the same
I loved you then
I love you still!
Want to know the truth?
I caught a nasty bug
And when it got ahold of me
I could not shake it free!
A lasting blue note
Has been haunting me!
It's like an old mistress
Forever chasing me...
But say no more
I may not be an easy man
But the way you played your hand
I couldn't stand!
It's too bad
There is much more we could have done!
But now those days are dead and gone
Nothing lasts!
All along
You made me feel this useless guilt
Can you look back on what we built?
I wonder what you saw in me...
Tell me was it real?
Was it love?
You tell me...
And though you think of it
As the cause of my fall!
Never mind, I'm blessed... I'm here... At all!
