Talk - Khalid

The Experience: Figure out where we're goin'. You can't take anything for granted when relationships are on the line.
The Vibe: Intense and yearning.
The Topic: Relationships.
The Value: Respect.
The Tension: I hope we both want the same thing VS. I'm not sure, and I need to make sure.

Music video: A house: a life together. Rooms without doors: no clear way of moving from one place to the next

The Meaning of Talk: The song drives strong toward what would too often be intimacy and sex: I could see it in your eyes I could tell that you wanted more and Ooh, I've been dreamin' 'bout it and it's you I'm on, so stop thinkin' 'bout it. But then comes the curveball: can't we just talk? The desire to talk, to understand before loving and ask before taking - that's something very human. Something that is all too often missing. 

Ask yourself: Do you understand the person you love? Do you give and ask before you take?

Album: Free Spirit - 2019

LYRICS:


Can't we just talk?
Can't we just talk?
Talk about where we're goin'
Before we get lost
Lend me your thoughts
Can't get what we want without knowin'
I've never felt like this before
I apologize if I'm movin' too far

Can't we just talk?
Can't we just talk?
Figure out where we're goin', yeah
It started off right, I could see it in your eyes
I could tell that you wanted more
What's been on your mind?
There's no reason we should hide
Tell me somethin' I ain't heard before
Ooh, I've been dreamin' 'bout it
And it's you I'm on, so stop thinkin' 'bout it

Can't we just talk?
Can't we just talk?
Talk about where we're goin'
Before we get lost
Lend me your thoughts
Can't get what we want without knowin'
I've never felt like this before
I apologize if I'm movin' too far

Can't we just talk?
Can't we just talk?
Figure out where we're goin', oh now
Penthouse view, left some flowers in the room
And make sure I leave the door unlocked
Now I'm on the way, swear I won't be late
I'll be there by five o'clock
Ooh, you've been dreamin' 'bout it
And I'm what you want
So stop thinkin' 'bout it

Can't we just talk? (Ooh)
Can't we just talk?
Talk about where we're goin'
Before we get lost
Lend me your thoughts
Can't get what we want without knowin'
I've never felt like this before
I apologize if I'm movin' too far

Can't we just talk?
Can't we just talk?
Figure out where we're goin'

Figure out where we're goin'
