DON'T SPEAK
(E. Stefani, G. Stefani)
unreleased


Demo version of "Don't Speak". It exist on a demo CD that was presented to Interscope Records, prior to the release of  Tragic Kingdom CD. Part of the song was performed on VH1 Storytellers on 08/10/00. These lyrics are from before Tony and Gwen broke up, while the final lyrics that ended up on the album were after the break up. You can clearly notice the change in how Gwen thought about their releationship: from "because we're always together" to "you and me, we used to be together". These are just the lyrics for part of the song and may not be accurate, if someone has the complete lyrics, please let me know.


I can see it all in an eyeblink
I know everything about how you are
I can understand exactly how you think
Between you and me it's not very far
Side by side, you and I
With many many years behind us
You let words pass us by
Because we're always together
And we will be forever
Such a special treasure, you and I

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
It's nothing new that I've heard

No need to tell me you’re my best friend
‘Coz you did watch, you know who you are
Side by side, you and I
Like the birds that that sing at the ocean 
Something as deep as you and I
We will be together married
And we will be forever
Such a special treasure, you and I


Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
It's nothing new that I've heard

I was so glad I knew ya
I was just too shy
After words to deep to lie
It’s just that they were so amazing
So let us both stop pretending who we are.

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
It's nothing new that I've heard
And don't speak
I know what you're saying
So please stop explaining
It's nothing new that I've heard

And i can see it all in an eyeblink
And don't you think that you're being hurt
Because I know it....
