I Don’t Want To Know (Draft 4)

I don’t want to know
if you love me anymore.

I don’t want to know why
you ran out in the snow.

Just tell me that you’re safe
and you made it to your refuge
and I can be your rescue if you ask.

I can be everything if you’d ask

I don’t want to know
if you love me anymore
because if you go far away

I want you to take my heart
and beat every sorrow down
like we used to do in the grass.

Oh you used to love me, and
can you take me as a charm

Be well because always
I love you as you are

and you know dear honey babe
I don’t want to know
if you love me anymore

be well
and think of me in your dreams
because I love you
like I did
and always, but well

I do want to know
if you love me
like you did, ‘cause

I remember you
in the fondness of my dreams

Can you kiss me,(no?)
can you kiss me

I don’t want to know
if you miss me, because

I miss you so much.
