Please give me the chords for "I Can't Talk To You"

I can bring tears to the eyes of the rain

I can fly free through the skies of my brain

I can sing songs to the ears of the wind

Laugh at the dizzy green world while it spins

I walk through the morning and cry like the dew

'Cause I can't talk to you



I can walk miles down a rain dampened road

My feelings expand till my nerve ends explode

Melodies swing from the birds in the tree

I can't help but feel that they're singing to me

My sorrow drops down to the soles of my shoes

‘Cause I can't talk to you



My dreams in the night funnel up toward the moon

My carnival soul is a bright red balloon

My words rush like rivers and flow to my head

But they'll dry on the banks and they'll never be said

The dry river bed makes me know that it's true

'Cause I can't talk to you

Send to: jaxsmithjr@juno.com Thanks... I need this for girl I love

Sorry Jax. Way too long since I've even thought about this song.
Maybe Chad still has the chords. I'm assuming his is the version you've heard.
Thanks for you interest and welcome to the board.
Yers,
Bob

Hi jaxjrone,

I like the lyrics of this song. It is very meaningful and significant. I realize something after I've read the lyrics. Who's the composer of this song? I also want to know the chords and I want to listen the tune.

I gather from the above posts that it's one of Bob's.

The lyrics remind me quite a lot of "I Can't Get Next To You" by The Temptations. Somehow I expect the music is rather differrent though.
Quote:
I can turn the grey sky blue
And I can make it rain
Whenever I want it to
And I can build a castle
From a single grain of sand
And I can make a ship sail
On dry land
But my life is incomplete
And I'm so blue
'Cause I can't get next to you
I can't get next to you,babe
I can't get next to you
I can't get next to you,babe
I can't get next to you

Oh, I LOVE this song! I get chills just reading the lyrics.

So moving.....the words AND melody.

One of my favorites ever by Bob.

Hi Rob, which song do the words "I went to the river and I stood on the shore. I stood in the twilight of the life I'd had before.. come from? I just can't place them.

Liz, I won't steal Rob's thunder - he can reply to your query...but, hey, I hadn't known about the Stuart single 'B' side until now - must try to iTunes it, as I have done with other Lind covers...thanks Rob Numbers - and - long time no hear! - all well, young man?

Liz, Rob's quote is from Lind's "I Found You", off his "Since There Were Circles" album.

A great album.

Available as per instructions on this site.

Enjoy.

Thank you Danny. Have you been affected by all the flooding in your country? My sister and brother (Melbourne and Noosa respectively) as well as the tv news, have been keeping us up to date.
PS Sorry about the Ashes :-)

Liz, my area of Central Victoria mildy 'inundated' (that's the term being used ad naseum here), but most areas of North Central, Central and Central Western Victoria meeting huge challenges with floods.

Probably take 2 weeks before waters peak, and another few months to clean up.

It's astonishing to see the difference - for about 11 years until late last year, these areas were in severe drough - dams, lakes, creeks dry; rivers a trickle.

Now, paddocks are lakes - you can drive for hundreds of km and it's an ocean - freaky.

Bad as this is, you gotta feel for our Qld folk - horrendous flood, a mini tsunami which killed 16 or so people (some still missing) in the Toowoomba area - and Toowoomba is built on highlands!

Refer Dorothea McMcKellar's poem "I Love A Sunburned Country", and you'll get the picture...

Strangely enough, here where I live, the floods are a news item we read about in the paper; Perth and the surrounding region are experiencing a drought.

And just to clarify, the poem Danny refers to is entitled "My Country". The line "I love a sunburned country" is the first line of the second verse.
