lyrics

You Got Me Talkin’ To Myself
©2010 Bennett Neuhauser. All rights reserved. BMI.

Who’s gonna listen to this story
Darlin’, now that you have gone?
There’s only one person I can turn to
Since you left me all alone …

You got me talkin’ to myself
And I ain’t likin’ what I’m hearin’
I called myself a dang fool
As I watched you disappearin’
Now my buddies all are wonderin’
‘Bout my state of mental health
You left me cold, without a word
You got me talking to myself

You got me looking in the mirror
Searching for the guy I knew
But, babe, it couldn’t be clearer
That he’s pretty much through
Standing right there in his place
Is an empty book upon a shelf
‘Cause you just up and turned the page
And left me talking to myself

[BRIDGE]:
Ooh, baby, I’m talking to myself
‘Bout how to get you back
I’m practicing every word I’ll say
If you give me half a chance

I deserve the silent treatment
I admit that I was wrong
If you won’t let me tell you face to face
Please listen to this song …
You got me talking to myself!

[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]

You got me calling out your name
In the middle of the night
Waking all the neighbors’ dogs
Their bark is better than your bite
You got me whisperin’ a prayer
Deeper than I’ve ever felt
‘Cause I’m speaking to your heart
And not just talking to myself

[REPEAT CHORUS, THEN FIRST VERSE AND CLOSE OUT ON: “You got me talking to myself” (3x)
