Genesis - Small Talk Lyrics




Don't talk back to me, don't talk back to me
Don't talk back to me, don't talk

Going round in circles, hearing too many points of view
Just words to tire me out, small talk I could do without
I would be amazed if you returned to see things my way
Now that you've been disrespectful to my sense of pride

Isn't it a shame that you were lying when you said to me (small talk)
I was the only one, you and I were meant to be
I expect you'll never really feel the way that I do
All of this is with regret, I'm sure you will agree

Say something to me, anything at all
I want you to mean what you say
I've seen all I want to see, and you mean the world to me
I've lived for each moment to be with you, with you, with you

Small talk, small talk, small talk, small talk

You say I don't talk enough, that applies to both of us
Don't try to sound me out, something I could do without
So much goes on inside your head, I often wonder
Have you heard enough to know, there's nothing left to say

Say something to me, anything at all
I want you to mean what you say
I've seen all I want to see, and you mean the world to me
I've lived for each moment to be with you, with you, with you

Small talk
Small talk
Ooh small talk
That's all I ever hear
Small talk

I'll be alright
It may take sometime
But I'll be alright (don't talk back to me)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me)
(don't want to be alone, nothing worth to carry on)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me)
(try hard to understand, you won't seem to lend a hand)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me)
(without you'll fail to see, you never spare a thought for me)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me)
(so many things you said, going round in circles)
I'll be alright (don't talk back to me)
(I'll rise above it all, enough to see another day)
I'll be alright
I'll be alright
Don't talk back to me...

    Vive les synthé de Banks ! ...

  2. nathan towles

    one of my favorite tracks from album

  3. George McKenna

    Completely different band to that who wrote the likes of The Musical Box and Dancing With the Moonlit Knight, but in a pop rock realm, this is deserving of more credit than it gets.
