She picked up the telephone
All she heard was dial tone
She really thought she heard it ring this time
She said what am I thinking I must be only dreaming
Or maybe it's the hundred times he's crossed my mind
Just tonight

(Chorus)

She said maybe I miss your lovin'
Maybe I miss your kiss just a little bit
Maybe I miss your body lyin' right next to mine
Maybe I miss your touch a little too much

Tossing and turning her skins still burning
From the fire in his hands
Runnin' on empty she needs somebody
But somebody wouldn't understand
Then the telephone rings

(Chorus)

They talked about Savannah
Sweet home Alabama
And how he missed the way she always smiled
Are you coming back soon
By the Harvest moon
If I have to walk every mile on my knees

(Chorus)

    I think it is about someone that you wish you could still be with,but they are not there anymore. It is about someone who might have passed away that is close to you and you are hoping that the phone will ring and it will be him. you miss sleeping next to that person and being with that person.
