[D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7] I will listen
Don't talk, you keep your distance, For I'd
[G]rather hear some tr[D]uth tonight than [Em]entertain your [D]lies. So
take your poison silently. Let me be.
[Em]Let me close my [A]eyes.
[D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7] I'll believe it
Don't talk, listen to me instead. I
[G]know that if you [D]think of it, both [Em]long enough and [D]hard. The
drink that you drown your troubles in is the trouble
[Em]you're in [A]now.
(We will) [Em]talk, talk, [D]talk a[A]bout it, You [Em]talk as [D]if you [A]care. But
[Em]when your [D]talk is o[A]ver, tilt that [D]bottle in the air. [G]
[D] tossing [G]back more than your sh[A]are
Don't talk, I can guess it.
Don't talk, well, now you're restless and you need somewhere to put
for how you feel inside.
You'll look for a close and easy mark and you'll see me as fair game.
You talk, talk, talk about it, You
talk as if you care. I'm marking every
word and I can tell this time for sure,
Your talk is the finest I have heard.
So don't talk, I was sleeping
Don't talk, let me go on dreaming
How your eyes they glow so fiercely,
I can tell that you're inspired
by the name that you just chose for me.
Now what was it?
Oh, never mind it.
We will talk, talk, talk about this
When your head is clear.
I'll discuss this in the morning,
But until then
You may talk but I won't hear.
