Do nothing till you hear from me
Pay no attention to whats said
Why one should tear the seam of anyones dream
Is over my head

Do nothing till you hear from me
At least consider our romance
If you should take the word of others youve heard
I havent a chance

True, Ive been seen with someone new
But does that mean that Im untrue? 
While were apart, the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you

Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothing till you hear it from me
And you never will!
