I left my message on your number
In hopes that you might call
Riding high on good intentions
Still hanging on the wall
Although my words were never all too
Clear it's understood
It's never too late to say in other ways
Something in our lives we'll rearrange
More than just your call on holiday

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Don't let me hear you won't
Come through tonight
Ring me up, don't bring me down
You know this lonely heart stands by me
While I'm waiting

Remembering how it came together
The meaning in your eyes
Now words fall out like perfect strangers
We both apologize
In all this time I thought I knew you
And over looked somehow the reasons why
You kept inside

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Don't let me hear you won't
Come through tonight
This lonely heart stands by me
While I'm waiting

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Don't let me hear you won't
Come through tonight

Ring me up, don't bring me down
Here's hoping the days gone by we'll see again
This lonely heart stands by and I'm still waiting
Ooh still waiting
Ooh still waiting
