577 – Gordon Lighfoot – I'm not sayin' (1966)

Escrita por Gordon Lightfoot, foi lançada em seu disco de estréia chamado Lighfoot, de 1966. A letra fala que o autor promete não necessariamente amar algo ou ser verdadeiro a esse algo ou alguém, mas que ele irá tentar.

Em 1965, foi lançada por Nico, com Jimmy Page na guitarra de 12 cordas, então um músico de estúdio. Foi produzida por Brian Jones. Foi regravada também pelos Replacements, entre outros artistas.

A letra:

I'm not sayin' that I love you
I'm not sayin' that I'll care if you love me
I'm not sayin' that I'll care
I'm not sayin' I'll be there when you want me
I can't give my heart to you
Or tell you that I'll sing your name up to the sky
I can't lay the promise down
That I'll always be around when you need me

Now I may not be alone each time you see me
Along the street or in a small cafe
But still I won't deny or mistreat you
Baby if you let me have my way

I'm not sayin' I'll be sorry
For all the things that I might say that make you cry
I can't say I'll always do
The things you want me to
I'm not sayin' I'll be true but I'll try

Now I may not be alone each time you see me
Or show up when I promised that I would
But still I won't deny or mistreat you
Baby if you love me like you should

I'm not sayin' I'll be sorry
For all the things that I might say that make you cry
I can't say I'll always do
The things you want me to
I'm not sayin' I'll be true but I'll try
I can't say I'll always do
The things you want me to
I'm not sayin' I'll be true but I'll try
