Talk is cheap, and I should know
I've given my everything, and it wasn't close  People mean well, but still make a mess
From now on I'm listening, and saving my breath 

 Lately I'm losing my appetite 
For all the pretty young girls and the socialites 
Who just talk
And this is what we do, we just talk
 Watch 'em waste breath on a magazine 
Or rehash what the television shows all mean
It's just talk
And this is what we do, we just talk

Some people don't know how they really feel
Some people won't talk about what is real
And I could never chitchat all day long
Some people just look for an open ear
Some people don't care what you want to hear
And everybody's talking while they're stringing me along 

I'll go by what you do
 Cause talk is cheap 
And I don't want to wait for you
 Cause talk is cheap 
I don't know how you spend your time
But I'm done wasting all of mine
 Cause talk is cheap 

 Lately I'm tired of politics 
And listening to the never ending arguments 
That just stall 
And this is what we do, we just stall  Never know someone to change their mind
 After a heated debate over the moral lines
We just crossed 
But this is what we do, we just talk

Some people get cute and they draw the line
Some people won't choose over left and right 
And I could never stomach all that greed 
Some people don't care enough 
Some people get scared enough
To get talked into something that they think they should believe

I'll go by what you do
 Cause talk is cheap 
And I don't want to wait for you
 Cause talk is cheap 
I don't know how you spend your time
But I'm done wasting all of mine
 Cause talk is cheap 

Some people, some people, some people  Think action is overdue 
Some people, some people, some people 
Can't wait, we've got work to do

I only speak of what I've done
 Cause talk is cheap 
And if you're listening, everyone 
But you talk when you're talking to me

I'll go by what to do
 Cause talk is cheap 
And I don't want to wait for you
 Cause talk is cheap 
I don't know how you spend your time
But I'm done wasting all of mine
 Cause talk is cheap
