About the song
"Don't Speak" is a track of the famous rock band No Doubt.
It was released in 1996. It is the third single from the band's third studio album, named Tragic Kingdom (1995).

Also the song reached number one in Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The single was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals at the 1998 Grammy Awards.
The lyrics of the song have a deep meaning. In the first verse she sings
I really feel
That I'm losing my best friend
which basically means that after seven years of relationship, they were not just a couple, and he was not just her lover. He was her best friend, and by that the break-up would be even harder to cope with. That's very deep.
