A #2 Country hit for Exile, "Nobody's Talking" was written by the group's bass player Sonny LeMaire and the Nashville stalwart Randy Sharp, whose credits include "Why Does it Have to Be (Wrong or Right)
" by Restless Heart and "Then What
" by Clay Walker.
Sharp's bragging rights on this song include a lyrical twist in logic. "What I liked about it is kind of the inside out... he wants to know what nobody's talking about. There's a neat little brain teaser in that. He wants to hear what's not being said. And there's also a little cool thing just for writers," he explains. "There's a whole thing about 'everybody hesitates,' the word 'hesitate' is in there, and as it's said, there's a hesitation
…. so it's like just a little cool inside trick where we actually act out the word when it's being used. Listen to it closely, and when the word 'hesitate' comes up, it comes up a beat later than you'd expect it to, because we wrote the hesitation in the lyric."
