This track is taken from the album Paul Liddell & Delphians - LIVE. The album was recorded at a gig in a tiny room upstairs at The Grey Horse pub in Whitburn Village, Sunderland. There were only 80 people at the gig. I hope you're enjoying the intimate vibe of the album. Thanks!


I walked away/from all I know
My battery's dead/I'm miles from home
And in 15 minutes I have to call you to say hello
Or the paranoia will come to eat me

**And it seems/the phoneline is a lifeline
An invisible connection to a world I understand
Late lastnight I/said I love you
And now it's hard to tell the difference
Between my heartbeats and the dialling tone

I'm caving in/I'm all alone
I need to find a telephone
To call my mother and ask her if I'm doing alright
Or the brown-eyed monster/just keeps on coming


I don't know how it got like this/but I cannot desist
I cannot let up/grow up/wake up


The telephone.
