Ooh you draw such pictures in my head
Ooh with so few words I know what you said

Until the time comes
To carry the one
Make that dream real
And be sure it stays done
So let that thought
Bloom in your mind
A vision that’s caught
Never left behind

You should just give me a call
You should just give me a call

I think about you much more than I should
Now there’s a structure nothing had once stood
No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
What it must be we will take it as a sign

So just give me a call
So just give me a call

Sunset and my love left me
winter and I’m so far
In darkness will it lead me
where the meanings are

I miss and think of you often
No flowers, I forgot them
The weather’s the same
Nothing happens
No love’s a hard lesson

Patience and years will refashion
what hours will undo
and circles not yet quite circles
somehow close true
I keep on hearing the things that you said
I keep on feeling you go straight to my head
No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
What it must be we will take it as a sign

So just give me a call
So just give me a call

I call you up but you won’t talk to me
No space for words there’s just no room
I drift away but you pull me in
I’m the ocean youre the moon

Ooh how do I know if it’s just me
Sometimes I think that it must be
You gotta know you can trust me

I think about you much more than I should
Now there’s a structure nothing had once stood
No more bluffing it’s cards on the table time
What it must be we will take it as a sign

So just give me a call
So just give me a call
So just give me a call
So just give me a call

    General CommentI don't know about anyone else... but I think it's talking about an addiction of some sort, whatever it is- cigarattes, drugs, alcohol, but it makes perfect sense to put a girl in as the person who should "call him."

    I think the thing that should "call him" is this addiction he's trying to get over, but just can't. So he'd like to get by with more of the addiction.

    General Commentbeen listening to this song a lot lately. It seems like the singer is just totally into this girl. He wants to know how she feels but he doesn't want to be the one to initiate anymore.

    "No more bluffing, it's cards on the table time" - He doesn't want anymore games.

    "No loves a hard lesson" - If she won't call him, she's not interested and he knows its gonna hurt but he has to know.

    General Commenthey listen to just before the first chorus (just when the music stops after he sings 'so just give me a call') there's this faint noise like a cell phone or something... its hilarious! gotta love it!
