Talk Is Cheap Lyrics

by Eric Hutchinson

Talk is cheap, and I should know
I've given my everything, and it wasn't close
People mean well, but still make a mess
From now on I'm listening, and saving my breath
Lately I'm losing my appetite
For all the pretty young girls and the socialites
Who just talk
And this is what we do, we just talk
Watch 'em waste breath on a magazine
Or rehash what the television shows all mean
It's just talk
And this is what we do, we just talk
Some people don't know how they really feel
Some people won't talk about what is real
And I could never chitchat all day long
Some people just look for an open ear
Some people don't care what you want to hear
And everybody's talking while they're stringing me along
I'll go by what you do
Cause talk is cheap
And I don't want to wait for you
Cause talk is cheap
I don't know how you spend your time
But I'm done wasting all of mine
Cause talk is cheap
Lately I'm tired of politics
And listening to the neverending arguments
That just stall
And this is what we do, we just stall
Never know someone to change their mind
After a heated debate over the moral lines
We just crossed
But this is what we do, we just talk
Some people get cute and they draw the line
Some people won't choose over left and right
And I could never stomach all that greed
Some people don't care enough
Some people get scared enough
To get talked into something that they think they should believe
I'll go by what you do
Cause talk is cheap
And I don't want to wait for you
Cause talk is cheap
I don't know how you spend your time
But I'm done wasting all of mine
Cause talk is cheap
Some people, some people, some people
Think action is overdue
Some people, some people, some people
Can't wait, we've got work to do
I only speak of what I've done
Cause talk is cheap
And if you're listening, everyone
But you talk when you're talking to me
I'll go by what to do
Cause talk is cheap
And I don't want to wait for you
Cause talk is cheap
I don't know how you spend your time
But I'm done wasting all of mine
Cause talk is cheap
