Don't Tell Me the Time
Martha Davis Lyrics


Uneasy eyes rest on a clock
A nervous hand reveals a watch
A sudden glance, a painful smile
And minutes slip away

Unsettled heart would skip a beat
A tired heart can find no peace
A lonely sound, the clock ticks on
And hours slip away
Don't tell me the time
I don't want to know
Don't tell me the time
You spend with her
Can't hurt me it does
Don't tell me the time
'Cause time can be cruel
Every moment that I'm away from you

Where did you go, don't want to know
Why are you here is never clear
Make love just once, you're gone again
And I'm alone with time

Don't tell me the time
I don't want to know
Don't tell me the time
You spend with her
Can't hurt me it does
Don't tell me the time
'Cause time can be cruel

And I still can't believe how long
The night keeps me waiting here for you
Prisoner of time, no dream comes true
Waiting and watching
Lost in forever without you

Don't tell me the time
I don't want to know
Don't tell me the time
You spend with her
Can't hurt me it does
Don't tell me the time
'Cause time can be cruel
Every moment that I'm away from you

Motels were a criminally underrated band, and Martha Davis solo likewise. Loved this back in 1988, love it now. Along with No Myth by Michael Penn, a jewel that deserved much greater recognition than it ever received.

Joe Cholik

Most artists wish they had one video like this...Martha has many

Time is cruel.
Losing someone you love is more cruel. Nuff said.
