"Sweet Talk" as written by and Alex Brady Epton Naeem Juwan Hanks....
Speak dumb like every other one
Don't want to let you down
I'd rather let you fall apart
And so you back off
A bit less obvious
Oh you forgot I called
Don't take it personal personal honey

I know you've just been busy or
You need to be alone
Well you can call me when you're bored
I'll sing a song low
Over the telephone
In lower decibels
So you can hear it and hear it and hear it and hear it

And lost it though
You've lost that privilege
With a hundred more
Hold his hand now
Out on the mission field
Your hearts compatible
Mine breaks alone alone alone

Your new boyfriend
You got your new boyfriend

You got your new boyfriend

You got your new boyfriend

I bet he likes you more than he likes me 'cause
I'm the former one
He's the latter one
He'd never say it but it's right

I'm sorry that was rude of me
Forget I said a thing
But don't forget it when you're starring at him
Say something you mean
Don't be polite
Kiss, kill nothing in between
I can't sit still, sit still
Get canceled, can't sit still
Not when you got, you got, you got

Your new boyfriend
You got your new boyfriend

You got your new boyfriend

You got your new boyfriend

I bet he likes you more than he likes me 'cause
I'm the former
He's the latter one
He'd never say it but it's right

Passed on up and over
Said she did
Said she didn't come on
Pass me up
Let me go
Throw away
Let me go
Oh it's ok not to be the same
Be the same
You've got him, oh
You've got him, oh

    General Commentthis song is pretty simple.. but i love it. it seems like his girlfriend fell for his friend and he feels that his friend doesn't like him 'as much' now that he has a his girlfriend or something like that "I bet he likes you more than he likes me

    ‘Cause I’m the former one
    He’s the latter one
    He’d never say it but its right"

    General CommentPersonally, I've always related this song to my own situation, and hoped that Ian encountered a similar situation, and wrote this song about it.

    "I bet he likes you more than he likes me
    ‘Cause I’m the former one
    He’s the latter one
    He’d never say it but its right
    Sorry, that was rude of me, forget I said a thing"

    I believe those lines could be about his ex moving onto a close friend of his... then again, they could just be written that way for catchiness. The rest is pretty obvious, I think, but still brilliantly poetic.

    So, I agree with 'blanklove'. I'm glad I'm not the only one to interpret it that way.

    General Commenti thought the whispering was "get sold on the meaningful untold" repeated and muted and muttered. no idea what that could mean.

    General CommentI believe the yelling at the end is: "Cross out a page of names you won't say, some state I can't name, they both mean the same thing!"

    General Commentgreat song.

    sounds like whispering is saying "it gets old" and something about the meaning.
