Yeah
Call me up
Yeah
Call me up

'Cause you can call me up
Day and night
Whenever you need someone to talk to girl
'Cause you can call me up
All the time
These fourteen numbers never felt so right

I know it seems somewhat extraneous
You ain't heard of this
'Cause I've not phoned you many times before
But now the assumption's that he needs us
And I can't fake it
But I been wanting to hear your voice
How do I explain this kind of feeling?
I never got enough attention as a child
And now I'm staring at the ceiling
With a hole in my head
Hoping you'll make it right

Yeah
Call me up
Yeah
Call me up

'Cause you can call me up
Day and night
Whenever you need someone to talk to girl
'Cause you can call me up
All the time
These fourteen numbers never felt so right

Alright, so I got a card, and I got his number
So, is it, is it 0-1-1... um... 3-3... how about the 6,
Is there like a 6 in there? Is it 0-6? Um...
I can't even really hear anything, goddamn it, ugh!

Call me when you're sad
Call me when you're mad
Call me when you're home alone
Call me when you're freaky
Call me when you're nasty
Call me when you wanna *ahem*
And if you're really upset
You can call me collect
'Cause you know I'm not gonna mind
At the drop of a dime
You can drop me a line
And I'm gonna make it worth your time, time, time...

Yeah
Call me up
Yeah
Call me up

'Cause you can call me up
Day and night
Whenever you need someone to talk to girl
'Cause you can call me up
All the time
These fourteen numbers never felt so right

'Cause you can call me up ('cause you can call me up)
'Cause you can call me up ('cause you can call me up)
'Cause you can call me up ('cause you can call me up)
'Cause you can call me up ('cause you can call me up)

    General Comment=). Never has a song ever read my soul. Love the beat.

    I noticed the singer says "These fourteen numbers never felt so right" when he is probably referring to his phone number. In the U.S., we have 9 numbers to our phone number, including zipcode so why does he say 14 numbers and not 9? I know this band is from Montreal, Quebec so his phone number is probably longer because he resides internationally. Just thought this was interesting..

    As to the meaning of the song, I think it is quite clear. The singer's character is feeling rather lonely and hopes a girl he is interested in calls him. It doesn't matter what they do, as long as he's with her.

    Man.. I love how the beat itself really shows the feelings of the singer's character. I might be crazy or something, but I can't help but admire their ability to not only tell you what they might be feeling but also let you feel it. It's like art to me. It's something, I think, that might be undervalued nowadays.
