Strawbs – I Don't Want To Talk About It lyrics

There's a place that I know
There's a place I want to be
There's a girl that I love
She is waiting there for me

There's a time that we share
When the sun is going down
With the world to ourselves
When there's no-one else around.

I don't, I don't
(You lit the fire)
I don't want to talk about it
(and let it burn)
I don't, I don't
(You've reached the point)
I don't want to talk about it
(of no return)
Actions speak much louder than words
Let's do it.

There's a kid on the streets
Who will never know his name
There's a woman in black
Who should hang her head in shame.

Every now and then
In the dead of night
You call on me
To make it right.

There's a voice in the night
That is calling out to me
There's a fire that will burn
In your eternal memory.
