There's someone across the street
Who sees me waiting for my friend
Then I cross the street, make a bee line for that phone, oh that one to make it happen
Oh to live to find a friend

Someone tried to call me up
But I don't even have a phone
She could ask to me what's up
But I'm waiting for your call to end

There's someone across the street, who sees me waiting for my friend, she could ask to me what's up
I'm waiting for your call to end

Someone tried to call me up
But I don't even have a phone
It's like my friends don't know I'm here
but I'm a person on my own, but I cross the street, make a bee-line for that phone

I'm the one to make it happen
And to find a friend
I make a bee-line
Oh to find a friend
I cross the street
I make a bee-line
Oh a bee-line
Oh make a bee-line
Oh, I cross the street

    General Commentwhat kind of mysterious situation is this song describing? i love how so many arthur russell lyrics are like puzzles, you can just barely understand what the heck he is trying to say and even then, what do the words mean? i know he is more focused on vocals as instrumentation, but i love to speculate on what meanings might lie in the unintelligibility....lol
