Don't Talk   10,000 Maniacs

[D]      [Dmaj7]              [D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7]I will listen
[D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7]you keep your distance,
For I'd [G]rather hear some tr[D]uth tonight than [Em]entertain your [D]lies.
So [G]take your poison [D]silently.  [Em]Let me be.  Let me close my [A]eyes.
[D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7]I'll believe it
[D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7]listen to me instead.
I[G]know that if you[D]think of it, both [Em]long enough and [D]hard.
The [G]drink that you drown your [D]troubles in [Em]is the trouble 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

[D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7]I can guess it.
[D]Don't talk, [Dmaj7]well, now you're restless and you [G]need somewhere to [D]put
the blame for [Em]how you feel in[D]side.
You'll [G]look for a close and [D]easy mark and [Em]you'll see me as fair [A]game.


You [Em]talk, talk, [D] [A]talk about it,
You [Em]talk as [D]if you c[A]are.
I'm [Em]marking [D]every w[A]ord and I can [D]tell this time for sure[G],
[D] Your talk is the [G]finest I have heard[A].

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.
