James Songbook - 6. Please Don't

What we pretend that we don't see does hurt people.

Please Don't

 

Please don’t look at the bruise on my face,

Please don’t ever drop by my place,

Please don’t ask me how I am,

Please don’t ask unless you give a damn.

 

Please let it go when I say that I’m fine,

Please ignore it when you see the signs,

I don’t know why they get so mad,

I wonder what happened to my Dad.

 

Please don’t say I just have to be strong,

Please don’t see what is really wrong,

I can take it, I don’t talk back or fight,

I can take it, it’ll be all right.

 

Please don’t notice, please don’t call,

When you hear a brawl through the wall,

I can take it, I don’t talk back or fight,

I can take it, it’ll be all right.

 

Please don’t notice all the fights,

Please give him time, he’s always contrite,

I can take it, I don’t talk back or fight,

I can take it, it’ll be all right.

 

Please don’t notice all the cops and the lights,

I couldn’t take it one more night,

Not one more blow or another fight.

They sigh; zip me up the body bag,

And they wonder why it had to be,

What you didn’t see was the death of me.
