Song of the Day #4,396: ‘Talk Too Much’ – Coin

Fiona is a fan of songs much more than albums or even artists. Most of the tracks I’m featuring over these two weeks are the only songs she likes from the represented performers.

She says she often dives into the rest of an artist’s catalog after coming across a song she likes and usually comes away disappointed, or at least uninspired.

One exception is Coin, a Nashville-based alternative pop outfit that formed in 2012. Fiona added a handful of their songs to our Asheville playlist and she considers herself a fan not just of this song but of the band in general.

‘Talk Too Much’ is Coin’s best-known track, having found moderate success on Billboard’s Rock and Alternative charts.

[Verse 1]
Caffeine, small talk
Wait out the plastic weather
Mmhmm, uh huh, discussing current events
I’ll take my time
I’m not the forward thinker
You read my mind
Better to leave it unsaid
Why can’t I leave it unsaid?

[Chorus]
You know I talk too much
Honey, come put your lips on mine
And shut me up
We could blame it all on human nature
Stay cool, it’s just a kiss
Oh, why you gotta be so talkative?
I talk too much, we talk too much

[Verse 2]
You know my type
Tightrope across the table
Mmhmm, uh huh, I can’t keep holding my breath
New wave, no time
Red velvet under pressure
Blah blah, green eyes
I never leave it unsaid
Why can’t I leave it unsaid?

[Chorus]
You know I talk too much
Honey, come put your lips on mine
And shut me up
We could blame it all on human nature
Stay cool, it’s just a kiss
Oh, why you gotta be so talkative?
I talk too much, we talk too much

[Bridge]
Silence is golden, and you’ve got my hopes up
We talk too much
No hesitation, what are we waiting for?
We talk too much

[Chorus]
You know I talk too much (Too much)
Honey, come put your lips on mine
And shut me up (Shut me up)
We could blame it all on human nature
Stay cool, it’s just a kiss
Oh, why you gotta be so talkative?
I talk too much, we talk too much

    I like their sound. Reminds me of another band, maybe Foster the People?
