"No Reply At All" as written by and Michael/collins Rutherford....
Talk to me, you never talk to me.
Ooh, it seems that I can speak.
I can hear my voice shoutin' out.

But there's no reply at all.

Look at me, you never look at me.
Ooh, I've been sittin, starin', seems so long.
But you're lookin' through me
Like I wasn't here at all.

No reply. There's no reply at all.

Dance with me, you never dance with me.
Ooh, it seems that I can move.
I'm close to you, close as I can get.

Yet there's no reply at all.
There's no reply at all.

Be with me. Seems you're never here with me.
Ooh, I've been tryin' to get over there.
Oh, but it's out of my reach.

And there's no reply at all.
There's no reply at all.

I get the feelin' you're tryin' to tell me;
Is there somethin' that I should know?
What excuse are you tryin' to sell me?
Should I be readin' stop or go?
I don't know.

Be with me. Seems you're never here with me.
Ooh, I've been tryin' to get over there.
Oh, but it's out of my reach.

And there's no reply at all.
There's no reply at all.

I get the feelin' you're tryin' to tell me;
Is there somethin' that I should know?
What excuse are you tryin' to sell me?
Should I be readin' stop or go?
I don't know.

Maybe deep down inside,
I'm tryin' for no one else but me,
Too stubborn to say, "The buck stops here.
I'm not the one you're lookin' for."

But maybe deep down inside, I'm lyin'
To no one else but me.
Oh, but my back is up. I'm on my guard
With all the exits sealed.

Listen to me, you never listen to me.
Oooh, and it seems there's no way out.
I've been tryin' but we cannot connect.

And there's no reply at all.
There's no reply at all.
There's no reply at all.
No reply at all.
Is anybody listenin'? Oh, there's no reply at all...

    General CommentVery well then. It's about a guy who's after this girl who won't return his calls, or take any notice of him at all. Near the end of the song, he seems to realise this but refuses to believe it and keeps on trying.

    General CommentI have to disagree w/ you k-nuxxx i believe this song is about a relationship that is crumbling but it's just put to an upbeat tempo because it's funny to the man (phil i like to think) because he's always talking and she never listens. he refuses to give up though. He realizes she won't tell him to stop so he keeps talking.

    i think this song is about a relationship, i came here to read the lyrics after i heard it on the radio and it seemed to relate to my relationship.

    when my lady and i have issues it seems like i do all the talking and she just sits there, she really sucks in the face of adversity. i get really frustrated and have to guess what she is thinking and feeling. i sing this song and think of her.

    great stuff from phil.

    General CommentIt's someone who is trying to get this woman's attention and she's giving him absolutely nothing. And he's teeter-tottering on the brink of getting the message that she's really not interested. And he's coming to the conclusion that the real issue is his desperation and feelings about himself, and it isn't so much about her at all. He just wants someone, anyone to respond.

    I get the feelin' you're tryin' to tell me;
    Is there somethin' that I should know?
    What excuse are you tryin' to sell me?
    Should I be readin' stop or go?

    Maybe deep down inside,
    I'm tryin' for no one else but me,
    Too stubborn to say, "The buck stops here.
    I'm not the one you're lookin' for."

    To no one else but me.
    Oh, but my back is up. I'm on my guard
