Don't Tell Me (PETER HAMMILL: Enter K)

[Instrumental intro:] F#m E F#m

                          E
You don't have to say a thing,

                 F#m
the silence is sweet;

              A?
we've been together today

      D#m                  D
in a way we might never repeat.

F#m                   E
Oh, your head on the pillow,

                     F#m
the distance in your eyes -

   A
already you might be

   D#m                    D
rehearsing the word "Goodbye".

[Arpegios]
F#m      D                      F#m
When the evening comes of this perfect day,

                  D            B
when the shadows run will you look away,

           C#
will you slip away?

 D#m   C#   A#m  G#m  C# A#m B
Don't tell me    a___nything.

[same]
You don't have to say a word,
all too well I understand:
there's a nervous tension
in the touch of your gentle hand.
That makes me afraid -
I've seen you like this before...
the moment you find somebody new
                   D
you find yourself bored.

                     F#m
Oh, I don't want to lose you.

[same as before]
When the evening comes of this perfect day,
when the shadows run will you look away,
will you slip away?

                   A#m  D#m C# A#m F#m
Don't tell me anything.

[instrumental] F#m E F#m E F#m

          D
Now the evening's come,

         F#m
now I'm left alone;

         D
now the passion's done

            B
and you're going home...

                   C#
oh, when will you telephone?

     D#m   C#   A#m G#m C# A#m
You don't tell me   a__nything.

G#m      D#m        C#   A#m
No, you don't even tell me

                A#
the bell won't ring.
