a pleasant insecurity
takes me when i spell out your name
and forms the words of all the cheap love songs
that seem to take my by the hand
the night is sprinkled with a million stars
a blanked for our dearest dreams
that tickles your nose when it's dark
and tells you to make my phone ring
tonight i would give this song away to hear your voice
and trade in all my memories for the chance to be your boy
so why don't you call me just to say
that you thought about me today
and that you are feeling as insecure as i am now?

what if you call me and i'm not home?
will you wonder if i went away?
i'll spend a lifetime by the phone...
why won't you call me anyway?
i'm falling in love, or in other words going insane
why can't i stop dancing to the same song over again?

i lip-synch to be the conversations
we've only had inside my head
and dress up for the possibility
i might bump into you somewhere
like lovers do in silent movies...
the odds are torn down by romance!
and if all dreams are born to crumble
we resist the urge of making sense
'cause it took me so long to learn what love is about
and although now i have to face these new-felt childish doubts
i wish life would take us by the hand
and make both of us understand
that now, for the first time
there is no reason to be scared

will you become a part of my life
or just go away when you please?
are you here just to break my heart
or spare me off my misery?
i shake hands with my loneliness
goodbye old friend you won't be missed
i'm sure that this time you
won't have a reason to come back

what if you call me and i'm not home?
will you wonder if i went away?
i'll spend the whole day by the phone...
why don't you make it ring today?
'cause i've waited my whole life
for a girl like you to come my way
to make me stop dancing to the same song over again
