Lyrics

(8 bar Intro)-

Verse- You’re lookin’ right at me,

            Tell me, where is your head?

            You haven’t listened to one word I’ve said

            Your body’s standin’ up--your mind went back to bed

Lift  -   Well, the light may be on

           But you’re already gone…it’s just like

Chorus- Talkin’ to the wall, talkin’ to the wall

              Were you hypnotized… girl/boy, did you slip and fall?

               I’m talkin’ to the wall, talkin’ to the wall

               Talkin’ to you…is like talkin’ to the wall

Verse- Is this too hard for you?

            What do I do to get through?

            How do I penetrate that zombie stare?

            You need an exorcist or hospital care

Lift-    Well, I need to know

         Tell me, where did you go?...it’s just like

Chorus- Talkin’ to the wall, talkin’ to the wall

               ain’t getting’ through—this IS your wake-up call

               I’m talking’ to the wall, talkin’ to the wall

               Talkin’ to you…is like talkin’ to the wall

(8 bar musical interlude from verse/sax ride)

Lift -  Please tell me why—

           Why do I even try?...it’s just like

Chrous- Talkin’ to the wall, talkin’ to the wall

              You’ll wait there forever if you wait for me to crawl

              Talkin’ to the wall, talking to the wall…

              I’m sick of

             Talkin’ to the wall, talkin’ to the wall

             The clock is strikin’ twelve, girl/boy, you better leave the ball

             Talkin’ to the wall, talkin’ to the wall…(ad lib tag out to fade)
