Call Me

(Call me, make sure I'm home.)

I did not hear that call last night;
I didn't hear that call you made at me.

Everytime you go away, I think you've gone away to stay,
And I sit down,
And I commit myself to the deepest despair.
Everytime you move around, I think about moving
- Running away, making running repairs.

Everytime you run around, I think about another time,
I think about moving.
But then again just where?
Everytime I go away, I think I'm going away to stay,
I think about it, and I cry baby, cry baby, I cry baby.

Because if you don't call me, then I can't call you;
If you don't call me, then I can't call you - don't know the number.
If you don't call me, then I can't call you;
If you don't call me, tell me, what can I do?

'Cause if you took a little time to think,
You'd know, I know you would know,
I will always be there by your right hand.
And if you took a little time to think about it,
You'd know,
That I will always be there - will always try to understand.

Don't call me, can't call you;
If you don't call me, I can't call you - I haven't got the number.
Call me baby, or I can't call you,
Tell me love of my life, what can I do?

Everytime you go away, I feel you've gone away to stay.
I sit on down and feel so scared baby, scared baby, scared baby.
Everytime you run around, I think about another time,
I think about moving - making some running repairs.

But if you don't call me, then I can't call you.
If you don't call me, what am I going to do, darling?
If you don't call me, I can't call you, don't have the number!
You know that I can't call.

Any time you care to call my name, I will be waiting,
Any time you care to call my name, I'll be there, baby.
Baby baby, when you call I might be sitting by the phone,
I might be on the bedside.

Any time you care to make a call, make sure I'm in,
Make sure I'm home, make sure I'm home.
Any time you care to use that telephone ring.
Let that telephone ring, let it ring down.
Let it ring down, that bell for me.
Let that telephone ring, let it make that call.

Let that telephone ring, make sure I'm at home.
Make sure I'm home when that telephone rings.
'Cause if you don't call, I'll do the same to you, baby as you do to me.
I won't call you, I won't know my number.
I've had enough of this, darling don't call or I won't call you.
