about

'Talk About Us' is the title of Isla Noon's sophomore release, due out on the 2nd of July. A follow up to her more cinematic and introspective debut 'Summer In August' it shows a gutsier, sophisticated pop side of her song writing and music production style. Despite being a recent arrival on the music scene Isla Noon is turning ears and heads already.

'Talk About Us’s colourfully poetic lyrics dramatises a position of hopelessness, of not quite knowing where you stand in a relationship. It deftly explores that 'white-knuckled holding on tight' feeling you experience when you sense that someone is quietly slipping through your fingers.

lyrics

Verse 1:
I’m at the end of a limit, we’re at a crossroads
If you wanna be in it now, or if you don’t
You’ve got to lay it all out on the table for me
Cause you never wanna

I am the first to admit, I over-analyse
But you’re avoiding the question and the question is why
Won’t you tell me what you’re running, what you’re running from?

I made a promise to always be there
I made a promise, but you won’t let me in
No you don’t want to say it now

Pre-Chorus:
Let it down
You’re scaring me now
I wanna hear the words out of your mouth

Chorus:
But you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us
No you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us

Verse 2:
I know I’m rocking the boat, I know I’m pushing you
Don’t wanna keep it afloat if you don’t want to
But I just wanna feel like you want it enough
Enough to fight, fight, fight

For me to feel like you’re in it
Like I don’t have to convince you tell me that you love me now
And as I’m waiting I’m feeling like the silence is sealing our fate
Prove me wrong now

Pre-Chorus:
Let it down
You’re scaring me now
I wanna hear the words out of your mouth

Chorus:
But you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us
No you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us

Cause you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us
No you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us

Bridge:
Scares me to death, scares me to death
The way you’re holding your breath, something I said
Everytime you look at me it’s like I’m talking all to myself
Cause you never wanna, no you never wanna

Chorus:
Cause you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us
No you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us

Cause you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us
No you never wanna talk about it
No you never wanna talk about us

Outro:
Never wanna, no you never wanna
Never wanna talk, ooo
