Talk to Me
© 2015 Kristina Stykos/BMI/Horse Thief Publishing

I’m in the darkness, baby
In the darkness, baby
In the darkness, in the dark

I thought you were visible
But now I’m just miserable
And guessing’s not a game, it’s an art

You’re the man, you’re the man
The most relevant man, and
Not just a guy but a giant

You give me no peace,
no love, no release
I’m damaged and compliant

I ‘m sick of you, not aware of anything
do you care -
I feel offended for starters

After all my scheming and the dreaming
like an idiot
No longer a woman, but a martyr

Didn’t I, diddle-e-di
spend it all getting high
you were the drug of my choice

well, trouble’s addictive
but kicking it’s wicked
like trying to yell with no voice

Talk to me
Talk to me
Talk to me
Talk to me

I’m in the darkness baby
In the darkness, baby
In a lonely empty space

You’re cynical & broken looping
what your mother did to you
And I’m the one with her face

gosh I tried – diddle-e-di
to be free and satisfy
but you did not want to continue

Tell me what’s the issue
I just really miss you
Was our first click a mistake?

Talk to me
Talk to me
Talk to me
Talk to me
