"talk to me" as written by and Chas Sandford....
I can see we're thinkin' bout the same things
And I can see your expression when the phone rings
We both know there's something happening here
Well,there's no sense in dancing round the subject
A wound gets worse when it's treated with neglect
Don't turn around ,there's nothing here to fear

[Chorus]
You can talk to me
Talk to me
You can talk to me
You can set your secrets free,baby

Dusty words lying under carpets
Seldom heard well must you keep your secrets
Locked inside hidden safe from view
Well,is it all that hard
Is it all that tough
Well,I've shown you all my cards now isn't that enough
You can hide your hurt
But,there's something you can do

You can talk to me
Talk to me, talk to me
I can set your secrets free,baby
La, la, la, la

Though we lay face to face and cheek to cheek
Our voices stray from the common ground where they could meet
The walls run high, to veil a swelling tear
Oh,let the walls burn down,set your secrets free
You can break their bounds, cause you're safe with me
You can lose your doubt,cause you'll find no danger not here

[Chorus]

Oh,I can see you running, I can see you running
I can see you running all the way back home
I can see your expression when the phone rings
And I can see your thinkin' bout the same things
Is it all that hard
Is it all that tough
Well, you've taken all there is now baby
Isn't that enough
Well, I can see you runnin', i can see you runnin'
All the way back

    General CommentFirst, I'm going to wax nostalgic about this song, then I'm going to get into what I think this song means--that's why we're all here, isn't it?

    This song will always have a special place in my heart. This song came out the year of my first love. I got home from school day spent staring at the object of my affection for hours on end, and this was the first song that was playing on the radio. Of course, being 16, I had very little concept of what this song was about.

    This is not one of Stevie's better songs (IMO, that would be "Edge of Seventeen"), but it will always have a special place in my heart for reasons cited.

    This song seems to be about a relationship that the Narrator has with a person. It seems to be an intimate relationship (we lay face-to-face, cheek-to-cheek) in more ways than one. However, there is some question to my mind of the legitimacy of this relationship ("I can see your expression when the phone rings"--implying that her significant other must panic when the phone rings for fear it's the wife).

    However, it's explicitly stated that this relationship is painful for her ("A wound gets worse when it's treated with neglect"). Perhaps it's painful because she knows that the man (I assume it's a man) would never leave his wife for Stevie.

    However, she's trying to get this man to open up to her, something he's unwilling or unable to do. She's tries to reassure him that she has no ill intent--that she poses no threat.

    Now, I do want to point out that at one point, after breaking up with Lindsay Buckingham, Stevie Nicks had a short affair with Mick Fleetwood (who was married at the time). Not saying that this was the extent of the Nicks/Micks relationship, but it would IMO fit the profile presented here.
