Talk to Me
After it was over, After the crying and All the angry shouting When we've both just given up And you turned and closed the door I didn't know what was wrong anymore Than I did before Maybe it was over When you stopped trying Or when I started doubting Maybe you don't care enough Maybe I'm just scared you'll go But maybe what's really wrong is that I still don't really know Talk to me quietly, peacefully Tell me what to do Talk to me honestly, don't you see I need to talk to you I need to hear that we're okay And say the things I meant to say So, talk to me before Before it's really over When it all was starting When I first met you We couldn't keep from talking I knew everything you felt And I felt you knew me too Now I'm talking to myself Or I'm just yelling back at you How this could have happened How I could loose you Or you could think to leave me After where we started from I'm too dumb I guess to see But you can't go till I do Any you know you owe that to me Talk to me quietly, peacefully I don't want to fight Talk to me nice and slow So I'll know how to make it right I'm not afraid to take the blame I'm just afraid we'll stay the same And we won't talk until Until it's really over I don't understand why you're always mad What could I have done? What could be so bad? Don't you want to know why I never sleep? Look what we've become from all these secrets That we keep When it's really over 'Cause I can't take it Or you've walked out for the last time When these years are just a dream And those tears somehow have dried I can't wake up in my bed And regret what we never tried So, please don't say it's over Don't even think it Just think about the good times Think of all we've got to loose And not who's done what to who And when it comes time to choose Think of who would still die for you Talk to me quietly, peacefully Make me understand Say what you need to say By the way-take me by the hand The only thing I ask of you Is please for once just listen to And talk to me before Before it's really over Talk to me Before it's really over
