Ultravox – Passionate Reply lyrics

Suddenly you'll find
Yourself waiting for a long time
Your back's to the wall
But now you must go

Painting scenes from magazines
Sucking breath from nicotine
Standing tall against the crowd we sigh

Taking turns on telephones
Living lives in other homes
Listening for the passionate replies

Suddenly we find
Ourselves talking for a long time
Our voices are low
But now you must know

Giving all you have to give
Taking all you've got to live
Plotting all mistakes along the way

Find it hard to take it all
Reading names on other walls
Writing down the words we tried to sing

Suddenly you'll find
Yourself waiting for a long time
Your back's to the wall
But now you must go

Suddenly you'll find
Yourself waiting for a long time
