"You Talk" as written by Kate Moss and Peter Doherty....
You talk, you talk a good game
I wish I could talk the same
And a song is just a game
I'm getting good at cheating

That's how you talk
Ah yes, you talk a good game
Won't you teach me the same?
I would love to explain
I love to show your hand and all about

Oh well, I know, I know, I know
I know it's wrong and so and so
So what, I suppose it's got to go out

I never ever said it was clever
I just like getting leathered
Looking for the light
Light behind your eyes

Well, you talk, you talk a good game
I wish I could talk the same
And a song is just a game
I'm getting good at cheating

Utah, remember Utah in the rain
And those little red shoes
And some kid with the blues
Who gets right on your tits
You just grin and bear it

Yeah, I know, I know, I know
I know it's wrong and so and so and so
And so it's got to go out

I never ever said it was clever
I just like getting leathered
I'm looking for the light
Light behind your eyes

Bevan, he drops stones from heaven
L O are D forever
And the love, the love behind your eyes

You talk, you talk a good game
You talk, you talk a good game
You talk, you talk a good game
You talk, you talk a good game

Well, I never ever said it was clever
I just like getting leathered
Looking for the light
Behind your eyes

Bevan, he drops stones from heaven
L O are D forever
And the love behind your eyes

    General Commenti love this song! it's about wanting to grow up and become a 'real' person. He's talking frankly about his drug addiction, how it used to be for fun but now it's a compulsion

    General Comment"Oh well I never ever said it was clever
    I just like getting leathered" I thought this was a reference to Pete's addiction.

    General CommentAlright, calm your passion.
    It's about getting smashed at the end of the day, and his experience when he is smashed hence why some of the lyrics are random!
