Talk Talk Desire Lyrics

Last updated:

Desire, whispered, spoken
In time
Rivers, oceans

That ain't me babe,
That ain't me babe,
That ain't me babe
I'm just content to relax
Than drown within myself

(Instrumental)

Of mind
Sheltered, broken
Denied, gifted, stolen

That ain't me babe,
That ain't me babe,
That ain't me babe
Ain't got a bed of excuse for myself

(Instrumental)

That ain't me babe

That ain't me babe
Ain't got a bed of excuse for myself

That ain't me babe,
That ain't me babe,
That ain't me babe
I'm just content to relax
Than drown within myself

Talk Talk's transformation | Reviewer: mianfei | 7/14/2004

"Desire", much more than the two previous songs on "Spirit Of Eden", was where Talk Talk moved out of the mood of "The Colour Of Spring". The dramatic change from quiet-to-loud, rather than being overblown, offers a remarkable look at the troubled feelings of Mark Hollis' life and how he wants the pressure of him. The simple electric guitar line has a ferocious intensity rivalling their masterwork "Ascension Day", whilst the orchestrated feel of the softer lines actually stands as a perfect complement for creating amazing emotional power.
