I Don't Want To Confess

Did you have to confess
Why'd you drag up that old mess
Did you have to be so indiscreet
What happened to keeping them guessing
Why shout our deepest secrets
To the tide comes rolling back again
And cast in the direction of the sky

All I ever see is people who can't wait to say their piece
So they issue their unmerciful release
And you're the latest name to grace that celebrated list
You think they'd make love letters won't be missed
They're worth their weight in gold
You and that small black dress
Won't have to look so old
Now the story is sold

I don't want to confess
Why'd you have to share these things with everyone
I don't want to confess
Everybody knows by now the word is out
But after you've gone
I won't need to
I won't have to
I don't want to confess

I don't want to confess
Why'd you drag up that old mess
Did you have to be so indiscreet
I'm determined to keep them guessing
