"Don't Say Your Love Is Killing Me" is a song by synthpop duo Erasure. It was released as the second single from their eighth studio album Cowboy. The track is an uptempo dance music song written by Vince Clarke and Andy Bell. Mute Records issued the single in the UK.

For the song's release in the United States, Maverick Records requested a remix for radio. The U.S. single version of "Don't Say Your Love Is Killing Me" is quite different from what is on the Cowboy album. The song's intro was changed, as well as the middle eight section. Most notably, an entire verse, edited out of the album version, is restored on the American single release.

The single's B-side is a live cover version of Blondie's "Heart of Glass". Erasure's previous single "In My Arms" featured another Blondie cover ("Rapture").

On the UK singles chart, "Don't Say Your Love Is Killing Me" peaked at #23, ending a chart run of 24 consecutive Top 20 singles. It reached #89 on the German singles chart and did not enter the Billboard Hot 100. Club remixes proved to be more successful, as the track hit number five on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. On the Swedish Top 60 it peaked at number 26.
