Have you ever…?

Have you ever heard an old song, one you’ve heard before and suddenly HEARD the song, heard the lyrics and wondered what the hell?!

I’m going to post this video and the lyrics…. not because I like it but because REALLY what the bloody hell?

Basically he is saying he is an asshat, he will not love you doesn’t care if you love him, he will cheat on you almost assuredly and he will not even be around when needed but hey he still wants to have his way with you!Β  At least he is up front….

“I’m Not Sayin'”

I’m not sayin’ that I love you
I’m not sayin’ that I’ll care if you love me
I’m not sayin’ that I’ll care
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be there when you want me
I can’t give my heart to you
Or tell you that I’ll sing your name up to the sky
I can’t lay the promise down
That I’ll always be around when you need me

Now I may not be alone each time you see me
Along the street or in a small cafe
But still I won’t deny or mistreat you
Baby if you let me have my way

I’m not sayin’ I’ll be sorry
For all the things that I might say that make you cry
I can’t say I’ll always do
The things you want me to
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be true but I’ll try

Now I may not be alone each time you see me
Or show up when I promised that I would
But still I won’t deny or mistreat you
Baby if you love me like you should

I’m not sayin’ I’ll be sorry
For all the things that I might say that make you cry
I can’t say I’ll always do
The things you want me to
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be true but I’ll try
I can’t say I’ll always do
The things you want me to
I’m not sayin’ I’ll be true but I’ll try

  1. Luckily, I had missed that one by Mr. Lightfoot.

  2. If someone tells you that you LEAVE before he’s finished with his words.

  3. He’s a big old Canadian music star. I never liked his songs, personally, but he was a Canadian biggie.

    • Never been a fan though i do know a couple songs well enough to sing along just from hearing them…but then again i can sing along to almost any bit of crap on the radio if i’ve heard it more than once. It is a curse!
