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

You and me
We used to be together
Every day together always

I really feel
I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe
This could be the end

It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real,
Well I don't want to know

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Our memories
They can be inviting
But some are altogether
Mighty frightening

As we die, both you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry

CHORUS

It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are...
You and me
I can see us dying ... are we?

CHORUS

 

Tabulature - Don't Speak

Tabbed by: Steve Jang - Just a 16 year-old kid who's been playing the
guitar for almost 2 years - but very good! ;)

Okay, a lot of people couldn't figure out the little parts of the
songand e-mailed me about it, so I just decided to tab out everything in
the song. It's now complete.

BTW: The chord names in the intro and verses don't necessarily represent
the name of the actual chords, but your fingering position. All of these
are barre-chords.
