Lyrics

There’s Talk on the Street
© 2014 by David Nyro

Hook/refrain:
There’s talk on the street There’s talk on the street
There’s talk on the street There’s talk on the street

Verse 1:
I don’t know what you’ve heard
There’s talk on the street
I know every word carries some heat,
a heavy drum beat against my heart

Verse 2:
Some of it may be true I’ll grant you that,
I’ll own it too, but it’s only one view,
a piece of just who I really am

Chorus: (Singers) Don’t believe it
(David): I’m not what they say
(Singers): Don’t believe it
(David): I’m just not that w ay
(Singers) Don’t believe it
(David): If you want to believe in me

Verse 3:
You be the judge and make up your mind,
see what you find
When you read ‘tween the lines
and discover what’s real

Verse 4:
People say what they say
can’t say why they say what they say
All I know is I love you
and I will be true

Chorus: (singers): Don’t believe it
(David): I’m not what they say
(singers): Don’t believe it
(David): I’m just not that way
(singers): Don’t believe it
(David): If you want to believe in me

Instrumental Em C Em C Em F G Am

There’s talk on the street There’s talk on the street There’s talk on the street There’s talk on the street
There's talk on the street there's talk on the street
There's talk on the street There's talk on the street

Chorus: (singers): Don’t believe it
(David): I’m not what they say
(singers): Don’t believe it
(David): I’m just not that way
(singers): Don’t believe it
David): If you want to believe in me

There’s talk on the street 4 x’s.
This time the hook/refrain keeps going as the chorus starts:

Chorus: (David): Don’t believe it I’m not what they say
(David): Don’t believe it, I’m just not that way
(David): Don’t believe it, if you want to believe in me

Hook refrain by itself, but this time, only 2 x’s and then back into the chorus, with the hook/refrain continuing.

Chorus:
Don’t believe it I’m not what they say
Don't believe it I'm just not that way
Don’t believe it If you want to believe in me
