Michael Franks – Speak To Me lyrics

From the Towers of Babylon
The beat goes on-
All voices of the insincere.
Confusion is middle C
Your frequency is what I need to hear.
Why won't you speak to me?
Show me some affection,
Give me some direction,
Lead me to your love?
Just speak to me-
Don't torture me with silence.
Solitude's a science
I would rather not learn.
For you I would lose my heart.
How can you refuse my heart?
Legend says Michelangelo
Was moved to throw
His hammer at the statue's knee.
Resembling flesh and bone
Its mouth of stone
Was quiet company
