Talking with Myself '98
Electribe 101 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

And if it's all right with you
I'll just talk with myself
I never was the one to leave you mad
And when the light's shining down on you
You sure look tragic too
And if it's all right with you
I'll just talk with myself
Oh when the stars are bright and the lights shine down
And everything moves all around
It's a wonder world and a perfect time for loving
Tonight

And when it all gets hung and it all gets tough and
Everything won't be enough
It's a perfect time to all come true for loving tonight
Yeah [Repeat: x4]

I've seen you passing by
And when you caught my eye
I thought "God this could be the next big thing"
And when you issued a command
Telling me to hold your hand
Oh baby, I wish it would rain

And when it all gets hung and it all gets tough and
Everything won't be enough




It's a perfect time to all come true for loving
Oh yeah

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Electribe 101's song "Talking With Myself" seem to be about being independent and content with oneself. The singer tells their partner that if they are upset or angry, they will just talk with themselves instead of engaging in arguments. They acknowledge that both of them can look tragic at times, and that a wonder world and perfect time for loving is when the stars are bright and the lights are shining down. The chorus repeats that when everything is tough and not enough, it's the perfect time for love to come true.


Later in the song, the singer sees their potential partner passing by and is immediately enamored. They think about how this could be the "next big thing" and are willing to do what they say, like holding their hand. However, despite the excitement, they acknowledge the fact that they will be content regardless of whether or not the love comes to fruition. The repeated chorus at the end reinforces the idea that love can come true whenever it's needed.


Overall, "Talking With Myself" seems to be about being content with yourself and your own company but still being open to love if and when it comes along. The lyrics suggest that love can come at any time, but it's important to be self-sufficient and happy on your own first.
