  • The Buzzcocks: You Say You Don’t Love Me (1979)

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on January 3rd, 2010 (All posts by )

    Kitty Kowalski put it best: The Buzzcocks are the Beatles of Punk.

    And Dr. Frank says this is one of thirteen songs that made him cry at least once. I can see that happening. Pete Shelley is one of the great romantic hearts of rock’n’roll.

    (Consider this my most recent move in the love song duel with Dan from Madison.)

    ou say you don’t love me
    Well that’s alright with me ‘cos I’m in love with you
    And I wouldn’t want you doing things you don’t want to do
    Oh you know I’ve always wanted you to be in love with me
    And it took so long to realize the way things have to be
    I wanted to live in a dream that couldn’t be real
    And I’m starting to understand now the way that you feel
    You say you don’t
    You say you don’t

    You say you don’t love me
    Well that’s alright with me ‘cos I have got the time
    To wait in case someday you maybe change your mind
    I’ve decided not to make the same mistakes this time around
    As I’m tired of having heartaches I’ve been thinking and I’ve found
    I don’t want to live in a dream I want something real
    And I think I understand now the way that you feel

    You say you don’t
    You say you don’t

    You say you don’t love me
    Well that’s alright with me I’m not in love with you
    I just want us to do the things we both want to do
    Though I’ve got this special feelin’ I’d be wrong to call it love
    For the word entails a few things that I would be well rid of
    I’ve no need to live in a dream it’s finally real
    And I hope you now understand this feeling I feel
    You say you don’t
    You say you don’t
    You say you don’t love me
    You say you don’t love me
    You say you don’t love me
    Mmm

      Damn you Lex Green, I thought I had won a surrender with my latest salvo, and now this. I…shall…return.
