​And So the Talking Stopped

This song is by The Delgados and appears on the album Peloton (1998).

When the lines leave nothing but my own space
Will you tell me or let me carry on?
Do you see that half of me is all you really need to get it wrong?

How can I explain when you know nothing of this game?
And the rules are only mine to know?
Let's go around where the lies and ties are not found

Take the bait
And just make sure you give all we can take
We only asked you if you made the grade
You're only wondering, now you're in the way

Living on a higher plane where nothing seems to stay the same
I tried so hard I almost made it real
Standing by the field and he is telling me he feels it's got to end

And I stall to think, and I'm heading for the sink
It will take time, but he believes we can be friends
So I walk away, I talk away, I'm perfectly rehearsed in every way

Take the bait
And just make sure you give all we can take
We only asked you if you made the grade
You're only wondering, now you're in the way

Take the bait
Just make sure you give all we can take
We only asked you if you made the grade
You're only wondering, now you're in the way
