Fighting Talk

Everything But the GirlBuy this song

Well it's so easy to be witty in retrospect 
When you're out of door you pause a moment to reflect 
On all the crushing one-liners that you should have said
But you always were reduced to angry words instead 

 Fighting talk on the stairs 
Is enough to show who never cared
 Fighting talk, who will be spared 
The abuse that's always hurled as you curse and swear 

But it's so cruel how the moment can let you down
And how eloquence deserts 
When you find yourself on sensitive ground
You slam the door and turn the catch 
You turned your home into a prison  Conversation into a slanging match

 Fighting talk on the stairs 
Is enough to show who never cared
 Fighting talk, who will be spared 
The abuse that's always hurled as you curse and swear 

But oh my love I'm sick and tired 
Of all the cruelty love's acquired 
We never more need come to harm
If you lay your head here on my faithless arm
