You Can Talk To Me



Don't you think that maybe I should slow down ?
I've got so many things to say
I had to write 'em down
I was feeling alone
So I'm on the phone to you

Now that you're here
I hope that you're hearing all the words I say to you
I've talked myself round, you can talk to me too

You can talk to me
Anytime that you feel the pain
I'll take the strain
You can talk to
You can talk to me
Anytime I can help you out
Give me a shout
You can talk to me
Oh yeah...

Don't you think that maybe I should calm down ?
I'm sick of staring at these walls, I'm gonna kick 'em down
I was feeling alone, getting cold

And I feel like a natural-born killer
Boring holes and cheap polyfilla
And I borrowed 50 dollars to ring ya
To tell ya, everything is alright

You can talk to me
Anytime that you feel the pain
I'll take the strain
You can talk to
You can talk to me
Anytime I can help you out
Give me a shout

You can talk to me
Oh yeah-eah-eah
Well come on, come on, come on, come on

You can talk to me
Anytime I can help you out
Give me a shout

You can talk to me
Anytime that you feel the pain
I'll take the strain

You can talk to meeeeeeeeeeeeee
Talk to me
Talk to me
