Talk Is Cheap

Talk is cheap and ain’t no one buyin’
Store’s shuttin’ down got sick of tryin’
Truth is hot and the rest is not
Almost went too far stopped just short of lyin’

Some things you can’t undo
Somehow they’ll undo you
Some people play for keeps
Someone told me talk is cheap

Talk is cheap but action that’ll cost you
I took some action and then I lost you
Then in the afterburn you returned
Earned my trust ‘bout as far as I can toss you

Some things you can’t undo
Somehow they’ll undo you
Some people play for keeps
Someone told me talk is cheap

Talk is cheap or so it seems to me
And it’s all made in the same factory
Tell me that you’re leavin’ we can call it even
Maybe talk is cheap but goodbye that’s free
