Stephanie Edwards – How Come You Don't Call Me lyrics

(by Alicia Keys)

But all I wanna know baby is
If what we had was good...

Verse 1:
I keep your picture beside my bed (mmm)
And I still remember everything you said (mmm)
I always thought our love was so rare I guess I was wrong
Always thought you'd be by my side papa now you're gone
(And I'm not tryna hear that shit)

What I wanna know baby
If what we had was good
How come you don't call me anymore

Verse 2:
Still light the fire on the rainy night
Still I invision you holding me tight
Everybody say
Everybody say that we should never part
Tell me baby baby baby why
Why you wanna go and break my heart


Sometimes it feels like I'm gonna die
If you don't call me Papa
Oh you gotta try

I'll get down on my knees
Hoping you please
Oooh won't you call me sometime Papa

Whhhyyyy on earth
Can't you just pick up the phone
You know I don't like to be alone

How come you don't call me
(Repeat til fade with adlibs)
