Talk talk
Charli XCX Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been lookin' at you
Puttin' holes in your head
We've been talking for months
But never in the same room
And now I wanna approach ya
But we've been keeping this a secret
When you're surrounded by friends
And I'm just wondering what they know

I wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd just talk to me
I wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd just talk to me
I think you're getting closer
'Cause I've been getting nervous
I wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd just talk to me
Talk to me, talk to me

Are you thinking 'bout me?
I'm kind of thinking you are
I followed you to the bathroom
But then I felt crazy
I'm feeling like I'm on fire
'Cause we've been keeping this a secret
And all your friends are still there
And I'm just wondering what they know

I wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd just talk to me
I wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd just talk to me
I think you're getting closer
'Cause I've been getting nervous
I wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd talk, talk
Wish you'd just talk to me
Talk to me, talk to

Wish you'd just talk to me, talk to me, talk to
Wish you'd just talk to me, talk to me, talk to
Wish you'd just talk to me, talk to me, talk to
Wish you'd just talk to me, talk to me, talk to

Talk to me in French
Talk to me in Spanish
Talk to me in your own made-up language
Doesn't matter if I understand it
Talk right in my ear
Tell me your secrets and fears
Once you talk to me, I'll talk to you




And say, "Hey, let's get out of here
Shall we go back to my place?"

Overall Meaning

In Charli XCX's song "Talk Talk," the lyrics depict a yearning for communication and connection with someone the singer has been observing from afar. The opening lines suggest a sense of distance and separation as they mention putting holes in the person's head, symbolizing the act of analyzing and studying them from a distance. Despite talking for months, they have never interacted in person, emphasizing the barrier that exists between them, heightened by the secretive nature of their interactions. The singer expresses a desire to break this silence and approach the person, yet faces uncertainty about what others may know about their relationship.


The chorus repeating the plea for the person to talk reflects the singer's eagerness for direct communication and clarity in their relationship. There is a sense of anticipation and apprehension as the singer feels the other person getting closer, leading to heightened nerves and a longing for open dialogue. The secrecy surrounding their interactions adds an element of complexity and mystery, amplifying the tension in their dynamic. The singer's internal turmoil is laid bare as they navigate their feelings for the person and the desire for them to engage in conversation.


The lyrics further explore the singer's inner turmoil and conflicting emotions as they question whether the person is thinking about them and struggle with feelings of obsession and uncertainty. The act of following them to the bathroom signifies a moment of impulsivity and feeling overwhelmed by their emotions, highlighting the intensity of their desire for connection. The repeated references to secrecy and the presence of the person's friends add layers of complexity to the situation, with the singer feeling on edge about what others may perceive or know about their interactions.


The final verses introduce a plea for open and honest communication, regardless of language barriers or understanding, emphasizing the universal desire for genuine connection and intimacy. The singer's willingness to listen to the person's secrets and fears, coupled with a desire to reciprocate by opening up and suggesting a more private setting, showcases a yearning for mutual understanding and closeness. Overall, "Talk Talk" delves into themes of longing, secrecy, and the complexities of human connection, offering a poignant exploration of emotional vulnerability and the universal need for communication and understanding.


Line by Line Meaning

I've been lookin' at you
Observing you closely


Puttin' holes in your head
Analyzing your thoughts and intentions


We've been talking for months
Engaging in conversation for a prolonged period


But never in the same room
But always keeping a physical distance


And now I wanna approach ya
And now I want to connect with you


But we've been keeping this a secret
But we have been hiding our interactions


When you're surrounded by friends
When you are in the company of others


And I'm just wondering what they know
And I am curious about what they are aware of


I wish you'd talk, talk
I hope you will communicate openly


Are you thinking 'bout me?
Are you considering me?


I'm kind of thinking you are
I believe that you are


I followed you to the bathroom
I discreetly followed you to a private area


But then I felt crazy
But then I felt irrational


I'm feeling like I'm on fire
I am overwhelmed with emotions


Are you thinking 'bout me?
Are you considering me?


Talk to me in French
Speak to me in French


Talk to me in Spanish
Communicate with me in Spanish


Talk to me in your own made-up language
Express yourself in your unique language


Doesn't matter if I understand it
It doesn't matter if I comprehend


Tell me your secrets and fears
Share your innermost thoughts and anxieties


Once you talk to me, I'll talk to you
Once you open up to me, I will reciprocate


And say, 'Hey, let's get out of here
And suggest leaving this place together


Shall we go back to my place?'
Shall we return to where I reside?
