About Don't Tell Me

"Don't Tell Me" is a song recorded by Australian singer-songwriter Ruel and produced by Grammy award-winner M-Phazes . The song was released in July 2017 and peaked at number 86 on the ARIA Chart in August 2017. The song is a musical declaration of his self-assurance. In September 2017, Elton John played the song on BBC Radio 1, saying “From Australia, this is a 14 year old boy ... with an amazing track. It's astonishing someone so young can write something so good. I give up. ” After the song faded, John added “Amazing record. Wow. All I can say about that is, we'll be playing more of him, I hope.” The music video was released on 19 April 2018.

Save your breath, my brother, it's not going in
I'm not your disciple, I choose how I sin
I've got a distant memory of previous lives
So don't say I'm not ready, back off with those knives

You don't know me like you used to
You can leave, but I refuse to
You can tell me that I'm crazy
But I won't stop and this won't make me

Uh uh uh 
Ooh, oh-oh-oh, don't tell me I'm not ready
Uh uh uh 
Ooh, oh-oh-oh, don't tell me I'm not ready for love
For love

I don't feel connected to all of your lies
But you can do a kindness and look me in the eyes
My soul's resurrected, yeah, it's been there before
So, don't say I'm not ready to level on my soul

You don't know me like you used to
Yeah you can leave, but I refuse to
You can tell me that I'm crazy
But I won't stop and this won't make me

Uh uh uh 
Ooh, oh-oh-oh, don't tell me I'm not ready
Uh uh uh 
Ooh, oh-oh-oh, don't tell me I'm not ready for love

The course that you have set for me
The shadows you crossed over me
The road is getting hard to see
But I'm gonna make it through
Horizons that are out of sight
Lost behind the fading light
Ready for what's coming, and they best be ready too

Uh uh uh 
Ooh, oh-oh-oh, don't tell me I'm not ready for love
Uh uh uh 
(For love, for love) oh, oh-oh-oh
Don't tell me I'm not ready for love
Uh uh uh 
Ooh, oh-oh-oh, don't tell me I'm not ready
Uh uh uh 
Ooh, oh-oh-oh, don't tell me I'm not ready for love
