I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met)

I can't understand,

She let go of my hand

An' left me here facing the wall.

I'd sure like t' know

Why she did go,

But I can't get close t' her at all.

Though we kissed through the wild blazing nighttime,

She said she would never forget.

But now mornin's clear,

It's like I ain't here,

She just acts like we never have met.

.

It's all new t' me,

Like some mystery,

It could even be like a myth.

Yet it's hard t' think on,

That she's the same one

That last night I was with.

From darkness, dreams're deserted,

Am I still dreamin' yet?

I wish she'd unlock

Her voice once an' talk,

'Stead of acting like we never have met.

.

If she ain't feelin' well,

Then why don't she tell

'Stead of turnin' her back t' my face?

Without any doubt,

She seems too far out

For me t' return t' her chase.

Though the night ran swirling an' whirling,

I remember her whispering yet.

But evidently she don't

An' evidently she won't,

She just acts like we never have met.

.

If I didn't have t' guess,

I'd gladly confess

T' anything I might've tried.

If I was with 'er too long

Or have done something wrong,

I wish she'd tell me what it is, I'll run an' hide.

Though her skirt it swayed as a guitar played,

Her mouth was watery and wet.

But now something has changed

For she ain't the same,

She just acts like we never have met.

.

I'm leavin' today,

I'll be on my way

Of this I can't say very much.

But if you want me to,

I can be just like you

An' pretend that we never have touched.

An' if anybody asks me, "Is it easy to forget?"

I'll say, "It's easily done,

You just pick anyone,

An' pretend that you never have met!"

.
