About the Song....
"I Don't Wanna Know" was the second single from "Photograph Smile." It was released on the 24th of August in England.

"This is probably the song that a lot of Beatles fans have been waiting for me to do. People are always asking when am I gonna do something more towards the Beatles style. And so I thought, why not? In a sense it's a homage, but the sentiment and lyrics are serious. It actually came about from walking around in France and there was a shop with an English newspaper. I thought, 'Oh get the paper, catch up on the rest of the world,' and then I thought, 'I don't wanna know.' It turned into a relationship song. It could have turned out to be the other half of How Many Times if it had leant more to the political."

The Lyrics

I don't wanna know what's going on
and I don't wanna know what's right or wrong
and I don't wanna know who's bed you're in
and I don't wanna know just where you've been.

Oh baby, you were never really good for me
just maybe, you're a stranger to reality
and baby, don't you know you haven't got a clue
'cos lately, I don't know what to do.

I don't wanna know what's going on
and I don't wanna know what's right or wrong
and I don't wanna know who's bed you're in
and I don't wanna know just where you've been.

Oh baby, you said you're changing for the better now
just maybe, you're not as strong as you thought somehow
and baby, you know you're heading down a one way track
and baby, I won't bring you back.

Well, you said you were looking for a better way
but you just keep coming back
to a place you can never seem to get away
that will always hold you back...

Oh baby, you said you'd rather be a daddy's girl,
but lately, you're try'n a fight against the whole wide world
just maybe, you've found a love that you can hold on to
and baby, I pray for you.

I don't wanna know what's going on
and I don't wanna know what's right or wrong
and I don't wanna know who's bed you're in
and I don't wanna know just where you've been...
