Joan Armatrading – Straight Talk lyrics

Every time I try to tell you
Just what's on my mind
You try
And calm me down
But this thing's got to come out
In the open some time
Yeah

You've been seeing
Somebody else
Behind my back
It don't seem fair
I'm the one who ends up
Looking like trash
Straight talk

I'm seriously thinking
That your brain is in revers
Don't try and change my track
I'm gonna spell out something
Remember where you heard it first
Yeah

You had my respect
I believed I had your
Respect back
But that's all changed
Now I find you really silly
Straight talking

Oooo you get these weird ideas
Oooo let's get your image clear
You're not bad
But you're no
No Romeo
You know that
No Romeo
You know that
You know that
You know that

Every time I try to tell you
Every time I try to tell you
Got to come out in the open sometime
Oooo you get these weird ideas
Oooo let's get your image clear
You're not bad
But you're no
No Romeo
You know that
No Romeo
You know that
You know that
You know that

Every time I try to tell you
Every time I try to tell you
Got to come out in the open sometime
You've been seeing
Somebody else behind my back
And it don't seem fair
I'm the one who ends up
Looking like trash
Had my respect
I believed I had your
Respect back
But that's all changed
I just find you really silly
Straight talk
