Talk You Down

  • I can feel the color running
    As it's fading from my face
    Try to speak but nothings coming
    Nothing I could say to make you stay
    Grabbed your suitcase called a taxi
    It's 3am now where you gonna go?
    Gonna stay with friends in London
    And that's all I get to know

    Just a cigarette gone
    No you couldn't' be that far
    So I'm driving in my car where I hope you are
    Maybe I can talk you down
    Maybe I can talk you down

    We're standing on a tiny ledge
    Before this goes over the edge
    Gonna use my heart and not my head
    And try to open up your eyes
    This is relationship suicide

    Cos if you go, I go

    Taking shortcuts through the alleys
    While your racing through my mind
    Cops can chase but they wont catch me
    Not before I get to speak my mind
    If there's still time

    Just a cigarette gone
    No you couldn't be that far
    So I'm driving in my car where I hope you are
    Maybe I can talk you down
    Maybe I can talk you down

    We're standing on a tiny ledge
    Before this goes over the edge
    Gonna use my heart and not my head
    And try to open up your eyes
    This is relationship suicide

    Cos if you go, I go
    Cos if you go, I go
    Cos if you go, I go
    Cos if you go, I go

    We're standing on a tiny ledge
    Before this goes over the edge
    Gonna use my heart and not my head

    Just a cigarette gone
    No you couldn't be that far
    So I'm driving in my car where I hope you are
    Maybe I can talk you down
    Maybe I can turn around

    We're standing on a tiny ledge
    Before this goes over the edge
    Gonna use my heart and not my head
    And try to open up your eyes
    This is relationship suicide Writer/s: DANIEL JOHN O'DONOGHUE, MARK ANTHONY SHEEHAN
