pacing, i contemplate.
should i pick it up or should i continue to wait?
i don't want to come across as desperate
even though i've called three times and haven't talked to you yet.

i'm trying not to feel
sorry for myself, praying for just one ring.
i bet you that it won't and i'll be all alone.
it's pretty sad when all your hope rests on the telephone.

i'll go out on a limb that you probably won't call. won't call.

i'm counting all the cracks in the wall
and i'm waiting around to go nowhere at all.
you never left but you're already gone.
i should just stay in bed because i'm just staying home.

i wonder what you think
when you hear my voice on your machine again.
do you even care? considering some reply?
maybe you come close until you ask yourself why.

i don't expect that you would know what it's like to be left behind.

and i'm counting all the cracks in the wall
and i'm waiting around to go nowhere at all.
you never left but you're already gone.
i should just stay in bed because i'm just staying home

i apparently came on to strong.
i thought we hit it off; i was wrong.
tell me what else i could've done to make
you acknowledge i exist while i'm

counting all the cracks in the wall
and i'm waiting around to go nowhere at all.
you never left but you're already gone.
i should just stay in bed because i'm just staying home.

are you alone like me?
