Talk Lyrics - Coldplay

Review The Song (23)



Oh brother I can't, I can't get through
I've been trying hard to reach you, cause I don't know what to do
Oh brother I can't believe it's true
I'm so scared about the future and I wanna talk to you
Oh I wanna talk to you
You can take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be?
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or write a song nobody has sung
Or do something that's never been done

Are you lost or incomplete?
Do you feel like a puzzle, you can't find your missing piece?
Tell me how do you feel?
Well I feel like they're talking in a language I don't speak
And they're talking it to me

So you take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be?
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or a write a song nobody has sung
Or do something that's never been done
Do something that's never been done

So you don't know were you're going, and you wanna talk
And you feel like you're going where you've been before
You tell anyone who'll listen but you feel ignored
Nothing's really making any sense at all
Let's talk, let's ta-a-alk
Let's talk, let's ta-a-alk

It harts me so much..! | Reviewer: Sooslover | 4/22/13

As the rest of us, it reminds me of my brother where i'm the one who stuck and need help..! Four years ago, i just traveled alone where i barely talked to him through phone once in 3 or 4 months, then few months back i returned back home but i can't cope with it anymore, i'm trying to talk to him so hard but it isn't what used to be, now i feel like i'm going where i've been before and that's cuz nothing's really making any sense at all.

"Oh brother I can't, I can't get through..." | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/13/13

This song makes me think about my little brother. I wish he would talk to me and confide in me again and not be so angry all the time... He's still here, but it's almost as if he's not. As though he wished he were somewhere else, far away from the rest of us.
The lines, "Oh brother I can't, I can't get through
I've been trying hard to reach you, cause I don't know what to do
Oh brother I can't believe it's true
I'm so scared about the future and I wanna talk to you
Oh I wanna talk to you,"
"In the future, where will I be?"
and "you don't know where you're going but you've been before"
are the ones that make me feel like such an awful sister because I don't know how to get through to him and bring out the kid he used to be. I don't know where I'll be in his future and I don't know what to do, except try to talk to him.

Today it's my song | Reviewer: Nemo | 6/23/12

Its amazing how people you dont even know feels exactly like you..I'm lost and this song understands me more than all the people I know..nothing makes Sense right now.. I wish I could find this brother to talk to..

<3 | Reviewer: Sir Psycho Runner | 4/30/12

LOVE BOTH VERSIONS!
I can say, this is my song. This defines my teenage years that I'm going thru. I can't seem to find myself, and I feel lost and disillusioned with life. I'm full of despair, hopelessness and spite. Yet, this song conveys my emotions exactly..whenever I feel so low, I just play this song and it allows me to break down to a point where I can pick myself up.
Love this band, and sure thankful they are there:)

my brother | Reviewer: unique | 4/10/10

This song reminds me of my big brother, he use to play it all the time when I was little. Now he's in anotther state and I havent seen him in ...forever...but anytime Im in a really bad situation I think of what he'd say if he was here.And when I get totally depressed I listend to this song and think of him...

Should have listened closer | Reviewer: Jay | 2/6/10

My twin brother sent this song to me several years ago. While I liked it, I never really "listened". He took his own life 2 weeks ago. This song was track 1 of the first disk I found while cleaning out his car. Like Jake, I would give anything to be able to "talk" to him. I miss him so much.

Strong Meaning | Reviewer: Jake | 10/30/09

This song has always meant a lot to me. My twin brother told me that it made him think of me. He had me listen to it and I liked it. He commited suicide in March. This song makes me think of him. I'd give anything to be able to talk to him again.

Great remake!! | Reviewer: jesper | 7/30/08

Great song, I love the whole album. FYI, this songs chorus is borrowed (with aknowledgment on the album) from Kraftwerks album "Computerwelt" from 1981. The song is called "Computer liebe" (love).

Regards, Jesper

mystikal | Reviewer: mel | 7/18/08

I think the lyrics are pretty simple. He's lost his brother or someone so close he calls his brother. Without this person, he feels lost and incomplete. He's made suicide attempts in order to meet him but hasn't succeeded. The advice he's decided to take is the advice he would give to him, if he was still alive. This person lives on in all of his songs and their lyrics. If you can't think of something you could live for, think of something you would die for a live for that.

The Other Version | Reviewer: Zach | 9/23/07

i like this song but i like the older version better, the one where it starts out with the north star. the lyrics sound cooler and the whole song just sounds more mysterious. if you havent listened to the old version you should

I have heard this song before !!!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Mike Johnson | 5/5/07

Coldplay ripped off this song from an porno movie from 1984 called "Little Show Offs." I swear the melody is exactly the same. Do they give reference to it on their CD ? PLMK.

If anyone has this movie on tape, watch the very first scene with the 2 lesbians dancing in the club. The porno movie version went something like:

"I call this number. I call this number.
For a downtown lady. For a downtown lady.
I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do."

tryin to communicate with the deceased | Reviewer: Alex | 5/2/07
