Telephone lines that run their tangled paths, connect us in no time
Let us talk and stalk and feel that we’re together all the time
you may think then that you’ll never be alone
Put the phone down and look around
Is anybody home?
Are you just talking to yourself?
Listening to your own echo, hearing the sound of your own voice
Or is there something else?
A connection across an unknown space, do you know your place?
You find yourself pacing and considering spacing between dots that mark the ellipses in your mind
Your thoughts are racing onto topics of conversation
That you never brought up while directly facing me
For so much time, fine
(repeat chorus lyrics, thru bridge)
Dialing and waiting, holding on
Bated breath and hating every second that passes too far away from you
It’s so frustrating, the illusory choice that you’re creating
You sound so near but it’s completely clear that there’s nothing I can do
