i don’t wanna talk about love lyrics – nanci griffith

i don’t wanna talk about love
’cause i’ve heard it before it talks too loud
you can hear it in a disco midnight, shouting

and i don’t wanna think about it, think about it
it comes dressed in its summer clothes
when you’re traveling through the heart of the winter’s cold

and i don’t wanna talk about changes
changes come of their own free will
and if you wanna talk about leavin’
well, you’ve always walked and, you always will

every time you talk about love
you talk about your yesterdays
yesterday’s washin’ away
with this morning’s rain

i don’t wanna talk about it
’cause love has a voice of its own
if all we do is try to out shout it
then the love is gone

’cause i don’t wanna talk about love now
i don’t wanna talk about love now
i don’t wanna talk about love now
i don’t wanna talk about love now

can’t you hear the voice in my heart?
it calls your name in the middle of the night
it’s always been a quiet voice
when it’s breaking

i don’t wanna talk about this love
this love was my saving grace
so, can’t i just say that i love you
and we’ll call it a day

’cause i don’t wanna talk about love now
i don’t wanna talk about love now
i don’t wanna talk about love now
i don’t wanna talk about love now
