"Talking In Code" as written by and Richard Charles Edwards....
I gotta go, and you're talking in code
Saying I know where you've been and I know where you go

But I've been tired from the minute I woke
I stopped listening the moment you spoke
and said I'm long gone
yeah, I'm long gone

And I'm sleeping alone
in a house I don't own
cause if you're touring your mind
you'll get lost every time
you'll sing me sad songs to keep me awake
in that bedroom where we hid away
Baby, I'm long gone
Yeah, I'm long gone

And your voice cracks like a piano
you keep moving
but where are you going?
Baby, we're long gone
Yeah, we're long gone

    General Commenttwo lovers drifting apart from each other... they ask each other, "where are you/we going?" and finally realize that their relationship is "long gone."

    i think the saddest part is when he sings, "you keep moving, but where are you going?" it's not that the people in the relationship are stagnant... it's the relationship itself that's dead and unmoving.

    General CommentFor some reason the line "Your voice cracks like a piano"
    is one of the sweetest, nicest lyrics I've ever heard. Its so simple but its just so poignant to the tone....

    General CommentI absolutely agree with the kid above me. That line gets me every time. It sort of captures a sort of aching agony that's just enhanced by the way he delivers it.

    And I also like what miki said. I love the "You keep moving" part, as well. Overall it's a great song. I'm a fan of their slower stuff.

    General Commentthis song hits me every time.

    especially
    "And your voice cracks like a piano,
    You keep moving
    but where are you going.
    Baby we're long gone,
    Yeah we're long gone...."

    that entire verse is the peak of the song for me.
