Song Lyric Sunday (02/11/18) – phones/calls

Helen’s prompt for this weeks Song Lyric Sunday is telephones and or phone calls. I almost went with one in particular but switched to this one. I don’t think the song needs much explaining. ELO, The Electric Light Orchestra was a powerful band in the late 70s and early 80s.

Enjoy…

Songwriters: Jeff Lynne

Hello, how are you?

Have you been alright through all those lonely

Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely nights?

That’s what I’d say, I’d tell you everything

If you pick up that telephone, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, how you feelin’?

Are you still the same, don’t you realize the things we did

We did were all for real, not a dream

I just can’t believe they’ve all faded out

Of view, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh

Blue days, black nights

I look into the sky (the love you need ain’t gonna see you through)

And I wonder why (the little things you planned ain’t comin’ true)

Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight

Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight

Okay, so no one’s answering

Well, can’t you just let it ring a little longer

Longer, longer oh, I’ll just sit tight

Through shadows of the night

Let it ring forever more, oh

Blue days, black nights, doo wah doo lang

I look into the sky (the love you need ain’t gonna see you through)

And I wonder why (the little things you planned ain’t comin’ true)

Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight

Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight

Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight

Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I’m living in twilight
