After it was over, after the crying
And all the angry shouting
When we've both just given up

And you turned and closed the door
I didn't know what was wrong
Anymore than I did before

Maybe it was over
When you stopped trying
Or when I started doubting
Maybe you don't care enough

Maybe I'm just scared you'll go
But maybe what's really wrong
Is that I still don't really know

Talk to me quietly, peacefully
Tell me what to do
Talk to me honestly
Don't you see, I need to talk to you

I need to hear that we're okay
And say the things I meant to say
So, talk to me before
Before it's really over

When it all was starting
When I first met you
We couldn't keep from talking

I knew everything you felt
And I felt you knew me too
Now I'm talking to myself
Or I'm just yelling back at you

How this could have happened
How I could lose you
Or you could think to leave me

After where we started from
I'm too dumb I guess to see
But you can't go till I do
Any you know you owe that to me

Talk to me quietly, peacefully
I don't want to fight
Talk to me nice and slow
So I'll know how to make it right

I'm not afraid to take the blame
I'm just afraid we'll stay the same
And we won't talk until
Until it's really over

I don't understand why you're always mad
What could I have done?
What could be so bad?

Don't you want to know why I never sleep?
Look what we've become
From all these secrets that we keep

When it's really over, 'cause I can't take it
Or you've walked out for the last time
When these years are just a dream

And these tears somehow have dried
I can't wake up in my bed
And regret what we never tried

So, please don't say it's over
Don't even think it
Just think about the good times
Think of all we've got to loose

And not who's done what to who
And when it comes time to choose
Think of who would still die for you

Talk to me quietly, peacefully
Make me understand
Say what you need to say
By the way, take me by the hand

The only thing I ask of you
Is please for once just listen to
And talk to me before
Before it's really over

Talk to me
Before it's really over

Manilow, Barry / Panzer, Marty
