talkin’ tonight

(decided to share some of my song lyrics…hope you enjoy.)

talkin’ tonight
yeah, we’re talkin’ tonight,
’bout what we think is wrong
or what we think is right.
usin’ what we hear
to find each other out.
our words defining what we
think we’re about,

but we’re talkin’ pretty much just to
keep our lips busy
so our minds won’t realize the fact
our hearts have gotten dizzy.
so we’re talkin’
just talkin’
tonight.

watchin’ a movie on the
t.v. set
it’s been on a half an hour
don’t know the plot yet.
the movie’s only there to be
some sort of a screen,
to keep our eyes from meetin’
in the silence between.
it’s given us a reason to spend
time together.
and things to talk about beside
our feelings or the weather.

but we’re talkin’ pretty much just to
keep our lips busy
so our minds wont realize the fact
our hearts have gotten dizzy,

but we’re talkin’
just talkin’
tonight.

we reach into our packages for
cigarettes
not really even carin’ if we
get the things lit.
it seems when we’re together that we
smoke too much..
it keeps our hands from wanderin’
and wantin’ to touch.
the movies only there to be some
sort of a screen
to keep our eyes from meetin’
in the silence between.

and we’re talkin’ pretty much just to
keep our lips busy,
so our minds wont realize
that our hearts have gotten dizzy,

and we’re talkin.
just talkin’
tonight.

one day one or the other of us
has to break out
and let the other one know what she’s been
dreamin’ about,
behind the screens, the talkin’
and the cigarettes,
what she’s been hopin’ for and thinkin’
since the day we first met.
anxiety attacks aside
i know what i feel
but i’m afraid i’ll learn co incidence
is often unreal..
the movie’s only there to be some
sort of a screen
to keep our eyes from meetin’
in the silence between

and we’re talkin pretty much
just to keep our lips busy
so our minds wont realize, somehow
our hearts have gotten dizzy…

so we’re talkin’
just talkin’
tonight.

it seems i’ve made this same mistake
a hundred times or more,
i felt a million things inside of me
and tried to ignore them,
out of fear, i’d be rejected so i
ended up lonely,
i’d like to break this pattern and i
think i would if only,
i thought i wasn’t puttin’
our friendship on the line, or that
she feels the same things,
then i would be doin’ just fine.
i’ve tried to make my words obey
they just come out wrong,
i think that maybe i should
simply say it
…in a song…

cause my mind’s already noticed that
my heart has gotten dizzy
and i can think of better ways to
keep our lips busy

than talkin
just talkin
tonight.
