Overview

Lyrics

The Gift of Gab #11

I'm getting stuck in tough conversations
'Bout what my plan is, and how the band is
They keep on talking, talking, all this insanity
I'm feeling pressured, don't need a lecture
I only wanna have a real communion
But I don't know how I can reach out to him

I just wanna be friends, but I simply don't have
The gift of gab, oh, the gift of gab
I just wanna be friends but I simply don't have
The gift of gab, oh, the gift of gab
No I do not have
The gift of gab

Then I bring up that controversial article
So many women can't have everything
The heat is rising as they're sharing their viewpoints
There's such a high cost, futures have been lost
And then they ask me what I think about it
The truth is that I'm scared to think about it

I just wanna be friends, but I simply don't have
The gift of gab, oh, the gift of gab
I just wanna be friends but I simply don't have
The gift of gab, oh, the gift of gab
No I do not have
The gift of gab

All I wanna do is hang around with you
Never have to prove anything to you
Yeah!

I just wanna be friends, but I simply don't have
The gift of gab, oh, the gift of gab
I just wanna be friends but I simply don't have
The gift of gab, oh, the gift of gab
No I do not have
The gift of gab
