  • "I DON'T WANNA KNOW WHY"

(Guy Thomas)  1981
This is the original demo I did at George Tobin's studio.  Barbara Mitchell covered it and then Kenny Rogers' publishing company heard it and he did a version as a duet with Cindy Fee. 

You took my love as desperate measure
Seeking shelter from another lonely night

And I took your love seeking only pleasure
But the feeling passes and the passion doesn't last.

And I don't wanna know why, I don't want the reason
I just watch the seasons, as they turn another year.
No I don't wanna know why, I don't want the reasons
I just know what is now, and what can never be.

Will the memories fade or will they linger?
Will we look forever for one moment we can keep?
Now we stand alone
Where we stood together
How did we ever let this dream slip through our hands

And I don't wanna know why, I don't want the reasons
I just feel the seasons, as they touch another year.
And I don't wanna know why, I don't know the reasons
I just know what is now, and what could never be.
