"Telephone Line" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
You called me up to say there’s a threat out on your life
Well you had a good life
And a beautiful waste of it all
And I am struck by
The emptiness of words
I can offer to you now
The emptiness of this telephone line

Why did I think I knew anything?
I want to arrive
Why did I think I knew anything?
I want to arrive

A year has passed now
I wonder how you are
Did you make it through the pain?
Or did you move it on up and make a beautiful waste of it all?

Why did I think I knew anything?
I want to arrive
Why did I think I knew anything?
I want to arrive

Time goes
I know
I want to pick up the phone
I want to give you a call
But, I’m too afraid of….
The other end of the telephone line

Why did I think I knew anything?
I want to arrive
Why did I think I knew anything?
I want to arrive

Time goes and changes everything
So why did I think I knew anything
So why did I think I knew
