Lyrics

The Gift of Gab (ver. 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
