TALK TO ME LIKE THE RAIN

Patti Scialfa's album version


The night is falling under the vesper bells lonely chime
And I, I ain't nobody's valentine
But I ain't sorry for wanting the things that you cannot give
If you want me to walk away, give me something I can walk away with
Talk to me like the rain, baby
Talk to me like the rain
And I will lie here and listen

All of those promises they're held like tender dreams inside our hands
And they're all just waiting there for our command
I don't want to talk to no one, darling,
I don't want the sun to shine
I'll just lie inside this darkness, baby, until you are mine
Talk to me like the rain, baby
Talk to me like the rain
And I will lie here and listen

Yesterday's empires they are all vanishing
And without you those new worlds, darling, they don't mean a thing
Talk to me like the rain, baby
Talk to me like the rain
Talk to me like the rain, darling
Talk to me like the rain
And I will lie here and listen
