  2. Let's Not Talk To Work Things Out (Good Communication)

    Written by Jonathan Theobald

    Guitar/Vocals: Jonathan Theobald
    Harp/Vocals: Calvin Arsenia

    Let's not talk to work things out
    We both know you're much too proud
    Just come on over sit right here
    Let's make communication clear

    Put your hand in my hand
    Your heart on my heart
    Put your legs 'round my waist
    Let's deal with this confrontation face to face

    Tell me what you're feeling now
    But baby don't talk out loud
    Use your lips but just don't say a word
    Let's pretend I am the sky and you are the Bird
    And you can fly

    I'm hearing you now
    You're body's making the sound
    And it feels so profound
    Let's just keep working it out

    I'm on the verge of a word
    It's sitting at the tip of my tongue
    I want to spend I want to splurge
    And waste every one of my feelings on you

    Put your hand in my hand
    Your heart on my heart
    Put your lips on my lips
    And just keep.movin' your hips
    Put your hand in my hand
    Your heart on my heart
    Put your legs 'round my waist
    Let's deal with this confrontation face to face

    I'm hearing you now
    Your body's makin' the sound
    And it feels so profound
    Let's just keep workin' it out
    The touch of your lips
    The slow movement of your hips
    Get your frustrations out
    Comon' girl settle it now

    I'm on the verge of a word
    It's sitting at the tip of my tongue
    I want to spend I want to splurge
    And waste every one of my feelings on you

    Put your hand in my hand
    Put your heart on my heart
    Put your lips on my lips

    That's what I call good communication baby oh
    x4

    There, don't you feel better now
