Come Talk to Me
The wretched desert takes its form The jackal proud and tight In search of you I feel my way Through slowest heaving night Whatever fear invents I swear it makes no sense I reach out through the border fence Come down, come talk to me In the swirling curling storm of desire Unuttered words hold fast With reptile tongue, the lightning lashes Towers built to last Darkness creeps in like a thief And offers no relief Why are you shaking like a leaf? Come on, come talk to me Oh please talk to me Won't you please talk to me We can unlock this misery Come on, come talk to me I did not come to steal This all is so unreal Can't you show me how you feel? Now come on, come talk to me Come talk to me Come talk to me The earthly power sucks shadowed milk From sleepy tears undone From nippled skin as smooth as silk The bugles blow as one You lie there with your eyes half closed Like there's no-one there at all There's a tension pulling on your face Come on, come talk to me Won't you please talk to me? If you'd just talk to me Unblock this misery If you'd only talk to me Don't you ever change your mind Now your future's so defined And you act so deaf, so blind Come on, come talk to me Come talk to me Come talk to me I can imagine the moment Breaking out through the silence All the things that we both might say And the heart, it will not be denied 'Til we're both on the same damn side All the barriers blown away I said please talk to me Won't you please come talk to me? Just like it used to be Come on, come talk to me I did not come to steal This all is so unreal Can you show me how you feel? Now come on, come talk to me Come talk to me Come talk to me
