Bernhoft - Cmon Talk
(This video is a live recording of Norwegian singer Jarle Bernhoft, former lead singer of the Norwegian rockers, SPAN. For this recording, he’s on his own, only accompanied by his loop-machine. No lyrics were available on-line, so I tried my best to interpret, but some of the words I came up with don't make all that much sense. I am amazed that he can multi-task like this...creating loops and then inserting them them with the foot pedals.)
♫C'mon C'mon talk to me
I'm gonna try my utmost to be honest with you
every single word
C'mon C'mon talk to me
I'm gonna try my utmost to be rythmical
I've been thinking a lot to the end
of our family affair
things that went wrong in a matter of speaking.
Should've been more forthcoming
about the things I need to say
but you seem to be talkin to someone else.
Now you got me feeling so sorry
for something I didn't do
You got me crawlin' around in the gutter
when I shoulda been making love to you.
So let's all smooth it over, cover your ears real tight
and talk to me, to be telling the black from the white.
So what matters most in the end
is beyond our limited reach
how to unfold all the mysteries
take a different kind of species to handle the weight
of all of your cows put into words
Now you got me feelin' so stupid
when I couldn't understand
you got me reeling 'round in circles
C'mon C'mon talk to me.♫
