lyrics

Straight talk for minute.
I think I might be losing my mind.
I've been trying to win it
but lately I just keep on crying.
I guess I'm really just a fragile affair.
Straight talk - when I'm in it
I get the feeling that nobody's there.

Straight talk - I bear and grin it
while inside everything's turning to stone.
Even daylight's got a limit.
These days I do my dreaming alone.
Guess I'm too battered and bruised to share.
Straight talk - how do you live it
when it's obvious that nobody cares?

Straight talk - I can't spin it.
Being a nobody's bringing me down.
But ask me, and I'll pin it
on the fact that I don't want anybody around.
Guess I'm just a sucker for solitaire.
Straight talk - now I did it.
I'm hearing voices everywhere.

It's alright. It's okay.
Jesus told me so.

Straight talk - do you get it?
There ain't no make up for all that I lack.
Last drink then I'll hit it - a lonely road.
No one comes back.
Guess I'm a whisper lost in time.
Straight talk for a minute.
I think I might be losing my mind.
