Didn't Want To Have To Do It Lyrics

by Lovin Spoonful

Didn't wanna have to do it
Didn't wanna have to break your heart
Didn't wanna have to do it
I kept hopin' from the very start
But you kept on tryin' and I knew that you'd end up cryin'
And I knew I didn't wanna have to do it at all

Didn't wanna have to do it
Didn't wanna have to be the one to say it
Didn't wanna have to do it
I kept hopin' there'd be somethin' to delay it again
Yeah, but then no, I didn't wanna have to be
The one to say the end

Was a time that I thought our love could fly and never never fall
Why should I suppose we were never really meant
To be close to each other at all

No, I
Didn't wanna have to do it
Didn't wanna have to be the one to say it
Didn't wanna have to do it
I kept hopin' there'd be somethin' to delay it again
Yeah, but then no, I didn't wanna have to be
The one to say the end, no no, not the end, no no no
