Radio 59, side B, track 13: “Only My Heart Talkin'” by Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper - Only My Heart Talkin'Oh, Alice Cooper, what in the hell is goin’ on here?  This week has kinda kicked the hell out of me, and this blog hasn’t helped.  Besides yesterday’s song, this week’s kinda been full of some yawners.  But I was like “Hey, I know there’s a song by Alice Cooper coming up, that’ll totally get me revved up for the weekend.”  And then we get this?!?!?  Look, Alice Cooper, I’m not saying this is a bad song.  I totally dug it when I first recorded it off the radio.  And any other week, I’d be all up for analyzing a love song by you and trying to figure out how a sad, schmaltzy love song from Alice Cooper fits into the grand scheme of things.  Because surely it fits in there somewhere.

But this is not that kind of week, Alice Cooper.  This is the kind of week where I needed a “Poison” or “House Of Fire” or “The Man Behind The Mask”.  To quote this song, I’m going to say a thing I never thought I’d say, Alice Cooper, but you kinda let me down.  I know, right?  I wasn’t expecting I’d ever write that, either.  But no worries.  It’s only only only only my heart talkin’.

“Only My Heart Talkin'”

<awesome Alice Cooper jam>

Anybody’s dream can fall apart

Anybody’s mask can break

Couldn’t tell you how I wanted you

Enough to make you wanna stay

I never said the words out loud
Guess I
Couldn’t get ’em straight

Baby, give me one more chance
‘Fore you walk away

It’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Yeeeeah, it’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Sayin’ things I never thought I’d say

Cancha hear me knockin’

Tried ta fool you but it wouldn’t play
‘Cause my heeeeeart is talkin’

It’s talkin’

Aw, baby, it’s talkin’

Talkin’ ta you

Every time I take it to the edge

Every time I’m so afraid

Doncha know I cry my eyes out, babe

Every time you look away

Oh, I almost dropped a tear
But I caught it just in time

I’d say those things you wanna hear
If you’d help me, help me
Help me try
It’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Yeeeeah, it’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Sayin’ things I never thought I’d say

Cancha hear me knockin’

Tried ta fool you but it wouldn’t play
‘Cause my heeeeeart is talkin’

It’s talkin’

Oh, baby, it’s talkin’

Talkin’ ta yooooooou

<awesome Alice Cooper jam>

Well, I don’t wanna hide away

Hide away withoutcha, babay

Doncha go and run away

Come on and help me, babay

Just a
Little help, babaay
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
It’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Yeeeeah, it’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Sayin’ things I never thought I’d say

Cancha hear me knockin’

I tried ta fool you but it wouldn’t play
‘Cause my heeeeeart is talkin’

It’s talkin’

Oh, baby, it’s talkin’

Ohhhhhhh, it’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Yeeeeah, it’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’

Yeeeeah, it’s only, only, only, only my heart talkin’
