"Talking in the Dark" as written by and Elvis Costello....
I tried in vain to drive myself insane
I talk to myself but I don`t listen
I found out what I was missing

I miss talking in the dark
Without you, I`m not conversational
Without the sense of the occasional
Without you, I miss talking in the dark
When the barking and the biting is through
We can talk like we`re in love or talk like we`re above it
We can talk and talk until we talk ourselves out of it

I look for the news, somebody to abuse
I look at myself but it`s so chancy
I see things that I don`t fancy

I miss talking in the dark
Without you, I`m not conversational
Without the sense of the occasional
Without you, I miss talking in the dark
Without you, I miss talking in the dark

    General CommentWithout you, I miss talking in the dark
    When the barking and the biting is through
    We can talk like we're in love or talk like we're above it
    We can talk and talk until we talk ourselves out of it

    When the "barking and biting is through" -- either the day is over or LE SEX is fini... One is never sure with Elvis... but THEN they talk together in the dark. Always a nice thing when you love someone... that wonderful intimacy where you can talk about anything --- "we can talk like we're in love or talk like we're above it".
