  • I just can't get through to you
    Despite all the ways
    I try or any of the things I do
    Maybe I'd be better off talking to a wall
    'Cause you ain't making any sense at all

    I'm walking and I'm talking
    And I'm trying and I'm lying
    But I just ain't getting through to you!
    I'm walking and I'm talking
    And I'm trying and I'm lying
    But I just ain't getting through to you!

    Am I just wasting, just wasting all my precious time
    'Cause I ain't wasting a breath on you or any of your kind
    If you had any brains you would open your mind
    But, I guess you're juts afraid of what you're gonna find

    I just can't get through to you
    Despite all the ways
    I try or any of the things I do
    Maybe I'd be better off talking to a wall
    'Cause you ain't making any sense at all

    I'm walking and I'm talking
    And I'm trying and I'm lying
    But I just ain't getting through to you!
    I'm walking and I'm talking
    And I'm trying and I'm lying
    But I just ain't getting through to you!
