Dan Potthast – Staring At Payphones lyrics

I imagine myself alone at Benny's eating the world's biggest slice
Across the room the payphone starts to ring
I'm chewing on ice Benny picks it up on his way to kick the jukebox
He grabs the phone and says it's for you
Now I grab the phone my hands are shaking
Hello you say
It's me now way
No way I wake up covered in makeup
Straight from a dream to nightmare
It seems I find myself alone again in Hoboken
I'm staring at payphones
I'm thinking of questions
I'm pressing the numbers in my head I'm staring att payphones
I'm staring at payphones
I'm thinking of questions
Hypothetical intellectual arguements I'm staring at payphones
Three months later I'm back at Benny's eating my pepperoni pie
Across the room the payphone starts to ring
I'm rubbing my eyes
Leona picks it up on her way to make a phone call
She grabs the phone and says it's for you
Now I'm not afraid of you or the payphone
Hello I say it's me
Go away in three months
I woke up
Got myself cleaned up
Thank you for seeing what I couldn't see
Things could be worse than being alone again in Hoboken
