(bass run) (C) (C) (C) (C)

Lets (C)talk about the (C)birdies that (C)fly up in the (C)trees
Lets (C)talk about the (C)moon and (C)stars that we can (C)see
Well (C)you keep on pre(C)tending you don't (C)know what's wrong with (C)me
Come (G)on - let's (F)talk - about (C)us

Well let's (C)talk about the (C)good times that (C)made us laugh and (C)sigh
Let's (C)talk about the (C)bad times that (C)brought tears to our (C)eyes
Well, (C)I think it's a-(C)-bout time for (C)you to rea-(C)-lise
Come (G)on - let's (F)talk - about (C)us

     (C) Hmmm, well (F)maybe I'd swear to (F)love you
     (C)Till the very (C)end
     But (F)I don't plan on (F)stickin' around
     (G)If it's just to be a (G)friend to me

(C)talk, talk (C)talk and talk, (C)there's still nothing (C)said
Mmm, (C)everything that we've been (C)talking about has (C)gone straight through your (C)head
Some-(C)-time a litle girl I (C)think, your (C)heart has filled with (C)lead
Come (G)on - let's (F)talk - about (C)us
