Not What I Wanted To Hear Lyrics

by Terri Clark

For two weeks I ain't heard the phone ring
Just a warning bell
My friends tell me they know things
I should know as well

I can't deny it, I've been told
A voice inside says let you go

But that's not what I wanted to hear
Not what I wanted my heart to say to me
That you'd be long gone before too long

And that's not what I wanted to see
'Cause nobody wants to believe, it could be so wrong
But one thing is clear it's what I needed to know
But oh, it's not what I wanted to hear

Sometimes my intuition
Can get carried away
But right now I'd better listen
To what it has to say

'Cause when I tried to believe you're mine
I just got silence every time

And that's not what I wanted to hear
Not what I wanted my heart to say to me
That you'd be long gone before too long

And that's not what I wanted to see
'Cause nobody wants to believe it could be so wrong
But one thing is clear it's what I needed to know
But oh, it's not what I wanted to hear

That's not what I wanted to hear
Not what I wanted my heart to say to me
That you'd be long gone before too long

And that's not what I wanted to see
'Cause nobody wants to believe it could be so wrong
But one thing is clear it's what I needed to know
But oh, it's not what I wanted to hear
Oh, it's not what I wanted to hear
