Hello
Yes that's what I said
Guess I thought that I was dead
So I just called you from my bed
To say hello

See I've got this funny notion
Life is only just an ocean
I've been drowning in emotion
Now I'm swimming back to shore
And I'd like to talk to you

[Chorus]
If you want to
You can call I'll be around
If you want to
You can write this number down
If you want to
If you want to
Leave a message at the tone
If you want to
You can call me here at home
If you want to
I'll be alone

So now I've called
So it's been a couple days, ok seven this I know that I've been moving kinda slow
So I called
Oh it must be so appaling if you think that I've been stalling
This is me now I am calling
And I'm better than before
And I'd like to talk to you

Don't you wanna know, don't you wanna be
Someone who takes a chance on a fool like me
Staring at the door, starin' down the hall
Waiting my whole life just for you to call

Hello
Yes that's what I said
I'm not breathing I'm not dead
Waiting here now in my bed
And I'd like to talk to you

If you want to
You can call I'll be around
If you want to
You can write this number down
If you want to
If you want to
Let your fingers do the walk
If you want to
I've got hours I can talk
If you want to
If you want to
Leave a message at the tone
If you want to
You can call me here at home
If you want to

I'll be alone
