Dialling Tone

from by Paul Liddell

lyrics

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 phone line is a lifeline
An invisible connection to a world I understand
'cos late last night 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

And it seems the phone line is a lifeline
An invisible connection to a world I understand
'cos late last night I said I love you
And now it's hard to tell the difference between my the dialling tone

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

And it seems the phone line is a lifeline
An invisible connection to a world I understand
'cos late last night I said I love you
And now it's hard to tell the difference between my heartbeats and the dialling tone

The telephone
