"Can We Talk" as written by and Daryl/edmonds Simmons....
Last night I,
I saw you standing,
And I started,
Started pretending,
I knew you and you knew me too,
And just like a roni,
You were too shy,
But you weren't the only,
Cause so was I,
And I've dreamed of you ever since,
Now I've built up my confidence,
Girl next,
Next time you come my way,
I'll know just what to say

Can we talk for a minute
Girl I want to know your name
Can we talk for a minute
Girl I want to know your name

I started
To write you a letter
But I wanted
To be more clever
I wanted to get down and sweet talk you
Hey, baby
But just like a roni you were too shy
But you weren't the only one, so was I
Girl if
We should come close again
I know what I'll say then

Oh, girl
One more chance
With you again
I will not let it go
Ooh, babe
Give me just one more chance
For love, love, love, love

Can we talk for a minute
Come on and talk to me baby
Say I want to know
Well, come and tell me your name baby
I said talk to me for a minute
Come on and talk for a minute
I want to know, I want to know
I want to know your name

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who tried his hardest to get a girl's attention that he really loves, but it's either that the girl doesn't see that he exists or the guy just missed out on his opportunity - and now really wants a second chance to impress her. All he wants is to talk and get to know her, then maybe form something further. A great love song with a good rhythm.

    General CommentThis song is one of the reasons why 90s music was so great. What a classic. It makes me ache for the 90s again.

    This song is about a guy who sees a special girl who he really adores, but he is nervous to talk her. He pretends they already know each other in his mind. He wants to know her name and who she is so badly. He writes her letters, dreams about her and thinks about her nonstop in his own privacy. But everytime he sees her, he is left speechless. He promises that if given one more chance, he will talk to her and make a connection with her.
