Andy Bull – Talk Too Much

In our age, it seems that chatter and conjecture has become, maybe accidentally, the primary way we qualify ourselves and our experience of living. We are often beating our chests and saying what we stand for, who we think we are, what we think of this or that, as if somebody asked. The implied fear is that silence must be akin to not-existing, but this is a dangerous lie. Language may help us to express that we are looking for meaning, but only clumsily, and only after the fact. I think this song is me saying to myself “stop this clumsy conversation and just live, whatever that turns out to mean”.

Talk Too Much

Hey kids, tell me how you’re feeling
Is it getting real yet?
Is this what you want?

Baby, tell me what it feels like,
Is it getting real?
And tell me when you feel you belong

Oh, what did you think?

Baby you talk too much,
It gets around,
Oh and you think too much
It gets me down,
Baby you talk too much, you talk too much
I told you that,
I heard you crying to yourself
I pretended I was asleep

Hey kids, tell me what it felt like
I’ll tell you what I needed,
I’ll tell you I was walking asleep
I was walking in my sleep

Oh what did you think, what did you think,
What did you think?

Baby you talk too much,
It gets around,
Oh and you think too much
It gets me down,
Baby you talk too much, you talk too much
I told you that,
I heard you crying to yourself
I pretended I was asleep

Say what you want,
You won’t say what you want
You won’t say what you want
Why you won’t say what you want

And baby you talk too much
I told you that
I think that you think too much
I don’t think about that
Baby you talk too much, you talk too much
I told you that,
I heard you crying to yourself
I pretended I was asleep
Baby you talk too much, you talk too much
I told you that,
I heard you crying to yourself
I pretended I was asleep
