"Communique" as written by and Mark Knopfler....
They want to get a statement for jesus' sake
It's like a talking to the wall
He's incommunicado no comment to make
He's saying nothing at all

But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
Think what he say
Say what he means
Maybe on Monday he got something to say

Communication
Communique
Communique

Maybe he could talk about the tricks of the trade
Maybe he could talk about himself
Maybe he could talk about the money that he made
Maybe he'd be saying something else

But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
Think what he say,
Say what he means
Maybe on monday he got something to say

Communication
Communique
Communique

And now the rumors are flying
Speculation rising
Say that he's been trying someone else's wife
Somebody at the airport
Somebody on the phone
Says he's at the station and he's coming on the noon
Then we get the story a serious breeze
And a photograph taken in the hall
You don't have to worry with the previous release
Right now, he's saying nothing at all
But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
Think what he say
Say what he means
Maybe on Monday he got something to say

Communication
Communique
Communique

    General Commentwell, there's this guy who doesn't tralk to his wife and everybody starts thinking he's having an affair. by the end of it, though, he's somehow cleared. eventually he writes out his feelings in a letter, a communique.

    General CommentUmm, I think it's a bit less specific than that. Knopfler used to be a journalist; what if he's just reflecting on the press's pursuit of reluctant celebrities?

    General CommentI tend to go for the idea that it's just a story of a journalist's constant challenge of obtaining interviews from reluctant subjects.
