Don’t Start Now!

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: BEGIN/END/FINISH/START

I have chosen a song which I have heard more of during 2020 than any other song. I think it is stuck on the loop at work. They play it several times a day! Some days I feel as if I am going crazy as this song starts up again for the umpteenth time! Maybe they think music with a fast beat will make us work more quickly???

But the truth is, I do like it!!! When I have time I find myself doing a little dance to it. But normally I am in a hurry and I wonder why it is that in the middle of a global pandemic the practice still wants to play party music over the tannoy. Anyway….for those of you that like some party music – this is Dua Lipa with “Don’t Start Now“.

If you don’t wanna see me

Did a full one eighty, crazy
Thinking ’bout the way I was
Did the heartbreak change me? Maybe
But look at where I ended up

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all

So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up, don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away, you know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Aren’t you the guy who tried to
Hurt me with the word “goodbye”?
Though it took some time to survive you
I’m better on the other side

I’m all good already
So moved on it’s scary
I’m not where you left me at all

So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up, don’t come out
Don’t start caring about me now
Walk away, you know how
Don’t start caring about me now

Don’t come out
Don’t show up
Don’t start now
Don’t come out
I’m not where you left me at all

So if you don’t wanna see me dancing with somebody
If you wanna believe that anything could stop me

Don’t show up (Don’t show up), don’t come out (Don’t come out)
Don’t start caring about me now (’bout me now)
Walk away (Walk away), you know how (You know how)
Don’t start caring about me now

So (Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t show up, walk away, walk away)
So (Don’t come out, out, out)
(Don’t show up, walk away, walk away)
