I Hear Talk
Bucks Fizz Lyrics


It's never been easy living with you
Dish of the season fishing for truth
But we got it rolling right on the track
Here's to the future with no turning back
We're taking half and half in mystery
We're making love to love so easily
And still I can't believe what's going round
I don't believe you'd ever let me down

I hear talk, I hear the writings on the wall
Too many private eyes and party lines
Secret signs friends who seem to know it all
I hear talk, I hear talk
Talk

Look in your eyes and what do I see
Everything I needed looking at me
Beyond all suspicion dreams on the side
Hold that position ticket to ride
So when it's all wrapped up
Like it's meant to be
The only trap that's left is jealousy
And still I can't believe what's going round
I don't believe you'd ever let me down

I hear talk, I hear the writings on the wall
Too many private eyes and party lines
Secret signs friends who seem to know it all
I hear talk, I hear talk
Talk

Chinese whispers circulate
There's a news man leaning on the garden gate
If you don't wanna headline better use your head
?Cause I heard someone say something you said

I hear talk, I hear the writings on the wall
Too many private eyes and party lines
Secret signs friends who seem to know it all
I hear talk, I hear talk
Talk

I hear the writings on the wall
Too many private eyes and party lines secret signs
Friends who seem to know it all
I hear talk, I hear talk
Talk talk talk

Bucks fizz don't get play enough on the radio this is a good example why they should be heard on the airwaves.

Andrew Berry

Can't believe this wasn't a bigger hit

Lane Hogger

@Cocky4U nothing like a serious bus crash to help promote this single. It’s a weak song that’s why it didn’t sell.

Ralph Jackson

MrMrMr and ZanduckTV2 I remember reading about that in the newspapers now. The song was out as a single around Christmas/New Year in 1984-85,and I think I remember seeing or hearing it,as well as things like the Frog Chorus (was The Snowman out yet or was that only the following year?) and the denouement of some drama my parents watched,set in Roman times with a mute girl in it),on TV one day post one of the various family festive lunches/dinners during the holiday period then.

39 years of Bucks Fizz /The Fizz and i'm still here , love love love this group , such a shame they were slated soooo much as they have made some truly fantastic pop songs and albums

There is a version of this song in Spanish called "A volar" (literally "to fly" but in this case could be translated as I'll fly) sang by Melissa, a female Venezuelan-peruvian singer. The song was actually a hit in 1986.

There were several factors at the time: the bus crash sidelined Mike Nolan for much of 1985, and this is one of the last Jay Aston tracks before her departure and Shelley Preston's arrival. RCA was being bought out by Bertelsmann as well and Bucks Fizz were not in their plans; a short tour of the US was apparently planned for 1985 but scuttled after the bus crash. The song was re-done in 1986, with Preston filling Aston's vocals, for the Polydor LP, now-ironically titled "Writing on the Wall" The LP featured three old RCA songs, a cover of Stephen Stills' "Love the One You're With" and some actual gems no one got to hear much. What a mess; this group deserved better over here, and it appears much of the UK had had enough by then as well, though single "New Beginning" did manage a top-10 in the UK. Polydor seemed more concerned with relaunching the Moody Blues here in the US at the time, and they did with "Your Wildest Dreams".
