[Verse 1]
I wanna sleep next to you
But that's all I wanna do right now
And I wanna come home to you
But home is just a room full of my safest sounds
Cause you know that I can't trust myself with my 3AM shadow
I'd rather fuel a fantasy than deal with this alone

I wanna sleep next to you
But that's all I wanna do right now
So come over now and talk me down

[Verse 2]
I wanna hold hands with you
But that's all I wanna do right now
And I wanna get close to you
Cause your hands and lips still know their way around
And I know I like to draw the line when it starts to get too real
But the less time that I spend with you, the less you need to heal

I wanna sleep next to you
But that's all I wanna do right now
So come over now and talk me down
(Talk me down)

So if you don't mind, I'll walk that line
Stuck on the bridge between us
Gray areas and expectations
But I'm not the one if we're honest, yeah
But I wanna sleep next to you
And I wanna come home to you
I wanna hold hands with you
I wanna be close to you

But I wanna sleep next to you
And that's all I wanna do right now
And I wanna come home to you
But home is just a room full of my safest sounds
So come over now and talk me down
(Talk me down)

Critical reception

"Talk Me Down" has received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised its mature themes and dramatic production. In a review of Blue Neighbourhood, Everett True of The Guardian wrote that "the spine-chilling Talk Me Down out-Macklemore’s Macklemore with its unashamed and unforgiving look at the lasting effects of homophobia."[4] Similarly, Christopher Turri of Popcrush said that the song's chorus "serves as a succinct and powerful reminder" of the challenges and tragedies faced by LGBT youth.[5]

Jules Lefevre of Rolling Stone Australia complimented the song's pop sensibilities, writing that the "pillowy" and "orchestral" sound of "Talk Me Down" is bellied by an "unshakeable chorus hook."[6] The Herald Sun called the song's melancholic production "glorious" and "perfect for the story being told."[7]

Music video

The music video for "Talk Me Down" is the third and final installment in Sivan's "Blue Neighbourhood" trilogy. It was directed by Tim Mattia and premiered 20 October 2015.[8][9] Christopher Turri of Popcrush said, "Every aspect of the video's composition is dipped in melancholia, from the obvious graveyard/funeral scenes to the blue color filter, from the good and bad flashbacks to the actual suicide. This is a sad and serious affair, and Sivan doesn't want us to forget it. And rightfully so."[5]

Live performances

"Talk Me Down" is included in the setlist for Sivan's Blue Neighbourhood Tour, serving as the thirteenth and final song in the standard set. His performance of the track was cited as a highlight of the show by Megan Downing of MTV UK, who attended the 19 April 2016 show at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire in London, England and wrote that "Talk Me Down" "gave us ALL the feels."[10]
