Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.
Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.
Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.
Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.

Talk to me, talk to me.
Talk to me like your the only girl, talk to me in this whole wide world.
Talk to me like your the only one, talk to me tell me what has love done.

Imagine a boy, imagine a girl.
Imagine the hearts, that are broken by the world.
Don't pass me by like a stranger, don't shackle love there's no danger.
Don't leave me here all alone, oh.
Talk to me, talk to me, t-a-l-k, t-a-l-k.

Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.
Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.
Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.
Talk to me, tell me that you love me, and that you'll never leave me.

Don't pass me by like a stranger, don't shackle love there's no danger.
Don't leave me here, all alone. So alone, I'm alone. Oh.....
Talk to me, talk to me, t-a-l-k, t-a-l-k.
Imagine a boy, imagine a girl.
Imagine the hearts, that are broken by the world.




T-a-l-k, t-a-l-k, t-a-l-k, t-a-l-k, talk to me.
Darlin' talk to me.
