I used a calling card from a pay phone
on the other coast
Just to tell you how good it was
to hear you
in those songs you wrote

They made me think there was something coming
really something worth waiting for
Blah, blah, blah.. they talk about, oh..

Every dial tone,
every truck stop,
every heartbreak,
I love you more
Looking like you just woke up from making songs,
shooting satellites that blew up the pay phones..
Singing we'll all be together,
even when we're not together
with our arms around each other,
with our faith still in each other

I've got calling cards
from 20 years ago.
