Straight Talk
Lyrics
Passing time, I was dreaming about last night, I was holding you
The phone rings, it's a friend of mine, says he's seen ya with someone new.
Its then I felt my heart just fall
I was swearing and a cussing and a kicking in the wall
I can't believe them words I heard at all, at all.


Didn't know just what to say when I called ya on the phone
But your line was always engaged, or they said your just not home.
When I drive by...on your wall
I can see the shadows dancing there, see the curtains fall
But my knock gets no response at all.

(Chorus)
Give me that straight talk
Why don't ya answer when ya hear me knock?
Is this relationship on the rocks?
Just give me that straight talk.

When I stop by at your job, you say "Sorry, I gotta work late...
"Give me a call at home tonight," but baby, I just can't wait.
All the pieces, they just don't fit
First ya say ya love me, then ya give me this sh-sh-sh...
Shine on crazy boy routine.

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
I've never been one to ask ya to pretend
And if it's over, God knows I'll let it end.
But I can't take this hanging out with constant doubt
And I don't want a maybe, baby, just give me yes or no...
No I don't need a maybe, baby, just give me yes or no...
Just give me that straight talk.
