You proved to me that I don't need
To be all by myself to feel alone,
But lately conversation only comes
When someone's calling on the phone,
Oh, but I'm not asking questions
Afraid that I might find out
What's really wrong

You give me that silent treatment
I can take it or leave
I'm getting that silent treatment
And it's working on me

Oh, but leaving off all the changes
I remember back when our love
It didn't hurt
Like when I'd wake up close beside you,
And you'd just lay there begging me
Stay home from work,
Now you don't like to talk about it
But lately we've been missing
More than words

I'm getting that silent treatment
I can take it or leave
You give me that silent treatment
And it's working on me
On me, on me, you got it working
Working on me
