Track Title: Don't Talk Album Title: MTV Unplugged, Volume 1 Prime Artist: 10,000 Maniacs Producer: Alex Coletti Written by: Natalie Merchant Written by: Dennis Drew Lyrics: Don't talk, I will listen. Don't talk, you keep your distance for I'd rather hear some truth tonight than entertain your lies, so take your poison silently. Let me be. Let me close my eyes. Don't talk, I'll beleive it. Don't talk, listen to me instead, I know that if you think of it, both long enough and hard the drink you drown your troubles in is the trouble you're in now. You Talk talk talk about it, if you talk as if you care but when your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air, tossing back more than your share. Don't talk, I can guess it. Don't talk, well now your restless and you need somewhere to put the blame for how you feel inside. You'll look for a close and easy mark and you'll see me as your fair game. Then you Talk talk talk about it, talk as if you care but when your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air tossing back more than your share. You talk talk talk about it, you talk as if you care. I'm marking every word and can tell this time for sure, your talk is the finest I have heard. So don't talk, I was sleeping. Don't talk, let me go on dreaming. How your eyes they glow so feircely I can tell your inspired by the name you chose for me. Now what was it? O, never mind it. We will talk talk talk about this when your head is clear. I'll discuss this in the morning, but until then you may talk but I won't hear.
