I don't mind if it's while I'm watching the football game
I don't mind anytime to me it's all the same
It's ok if your call comes through when I'm deep asleep
Or totally wasted lying blind and trashed in a drunken heap.

[I might be] clinging to a raft in the middle of an ocean
[I might be] holding on by my fingers to the edge of a cliff
[I might be] dodging bottles, dodging fists in a bar room brawl
[I might be] just hanging out for your call.

I'll be here waiting with the patience of a whale
You can choose; SMS or electronic mail
I don't care if I'm in the middle of taking a shower
I don't care if I'm climbing up the Eiffel Tower.

[I might be] about to address the United Nations Assembly
[I might be] about to take a penalty kick in the final of the World Cup
[I might be] stuck on the railway track with the car engine stalled
Just hanging out for your call.

And when you call I'll be sure to memorize the time
My face will glow at the sound of your voice coming down the line

[I might be] in the middle of an audience with the President
[I might be] trying to talk a suicider out of jumping
[I might be] scrubbing obscene words spray-painted on a wall
[I might be] I might be

[I might be] the man on point duty in the line of fire
[I might be] working undercover concealing a wire
[I might be] ready to run, walk, or crawl
[I might be] hanging out for your call.
