about

This is an old song, but we revived it because Joe Atom told us to.

lyrics

you've had your headphones on
all day long
whilst we walk around the shops
I've been talking you've been listening
you've been listening I've been talking
but will you still listen
when the tape stops?

sat next to you on the bus
you're listening again
as we pass a hundred different bus stops
I've been talking you've been listening
you've been listening I've been talking
but will you still listen
when the tape stops?

I know you can't hear me
but I'm talking anyway
you'd rather listen to music
than what I have to say
but if you change your mind
you just might find
I'll brighten up your day

at the breakfast table
this is getting silly
you listen as you eat your coco pops
I've been talking you've been listening
you've been listening I've been talking
but will you still listen
when the tape stops?

I know you can't hear me
but I'm talking anyway
you'd rather listen to music
than what I have to say
but if you change your mind
you just might find
I'll brighten up your day
