Lyrics

PHONE BOOTH (4:42)

Standing in this phone booth
With my back against the wall
Wishing I could talk to you
But I don't have a quarter for the call
Destitute and lonely, Lord, I feel so small
Standing in this phone booth with my back against the wall

If I could just get through to you, and tell you how I feel
If I could just express these hurts inside of me, the worst of this would heal
Comfort like a shoulder I'm sure that I would find
If I could just get you on this line

But there must be light years between us
I'd be ashamed to look you in the face
But you said I could call you if I needed to
And if I ever needed you, I need you today

Hello! How did you find me in the middle of nowhere?
Hello! You must have heard me

Standing in this phone booth with my back against the wall
Wishing I could talk to you but I didn't have a quarter for the call
Destitute and lonely, Lord, I felt so small
Standing in this phone booth with my back against the wall.

Have I told you that I love you? I guess you hear that all the time.
You don't? Why, isn't that a crime
I've been standing in this phone booth about to end it all...
And Lord...it's so nice of you to call
