Telephone

lyrics

Sitting by the telephone
It's not making a sound
The window's open
The curtains are blowing
And I'm just hanging around
Wishing for someone I've known
Who's got an hour or two
And if you wonder
This shade that I'm under
I wanted to share it with you

And when we're all alone
Find something to do
When I am all alone with you

I think a voice can travel far
Before expressing a word
I half-expected
You'd get the message
I just couldn't wait to be heard
And there's no question where we are
With air this easy to breath
The gates are open
My chains are all broken
It gives me a feeling so free

Flying by and skipping stones
Passing the afternoon
It's summertime when I'm with you

I'm sitting by the telephone
To keep me up for awhile
In your direction
I see my reflection
Enough that it's making me smile
And I just called to say hello
I had a wonderful time
So just remember
What we shared together
When you said that you'll always be mine

about

David Thompson Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!


*probably.
