Talk Down



Version of the song Length Containing on which release

Album Version 3:59 Original 91-93 [CD]

I feel sorry for you
'Cause you could be wrong
To be so cruel to a man
Is not to be strong
You're so cold on the inside
So smooth in the flesh
I'm in a no-win situation
If I let you take the rest

But you can't talk down
When we're both on the ground
And you can't mess me up
(That's what it's all about)
(We'll figure all this out)
'Cause I won't be around

I'd send you a letter
So that you know
You can take me to the station
If you don't believe I'll go
I hear you talk about the future
Just remind me of the past
You've got a funny sense of humour
If I'm supposed to laugh

But you can't talk down
When we're both on the ground
And you can't mess me up
(That's what it's all about)
(We'll figure all this out)
'Cause I won't be around

I won't be the one who has to hurt you
Who has to do it wrong
The one who's driving to the point
There's no escaping from
'Cause you'll be killing me
If I'm not killing you

But you can't talk down
When we're both on the ground
And you can't mess me up
(That's what it's all about)
(We'll figure all this out)
'Cause I won't be around

But you can't talk down
When we're both on the ground
And you can't mess me up
(That's what it's all about)
(We'll figure all this out)
'Cause I won't be around

(That's what it's all about)

But you can't talk down
When we're both on the ground
And you can't mess me up
(That's what it's all about)
(We'll figure all this out)
'Cause I won't be around

No you can't talk down
When we're both on the ground
And you can't mess me up
(That's what it's all about)
(We'll figure all this out)
'Cause I won't be around
