(Bass)

What we talk about,
When we talk about love
What we talk about,
When we talk about love

Talk about a shot from the hip
And the sky above
Talk about the flow on the lip
What the moon’s made of
Talk about things you can’t see
When you talk about me…
Do you talk about love?

What we talk about,
When we talk about love
What we talk about baby,
When we talk about love

Gimme something I can touch
Not a mystery
Gimme something I can feel
Not a fantasy
Gimme something real, baby
When you talk about love…
Do you talk about me?

[choir] Get off that slumber
Come on down get off that train
A bend is easy to fake

There’s a road up ahead
And it’s not that far
There’s a road up ahead
And it ain’t that far
Down the road you just don’t know
What it is you’ll find
Down the road, it’s a fact baben
You might as well be blind
It’s an odyssey so please
When you reach that road…
Don’t leave me behind

[choir] Get off that slumber
Come on down get off that train
A bend is easy to fake

Deep as the ocean
Wide as the sea
I’m talking about low visibility
High as a mountain
And harder to climb
It is in what you seek
Not in what you find

When you say things soft
You know they ring so true
When you say things loud
They don’t sound like you

Like it when you shake that thing
With the finest touch
Like it when you talk so little
And say so much
City girls they like to get rough
But when you talk about love…
They don’t hold no grudge

[choir] Get off that slumber
Come on down get off that train
A bend is easy to fake
