"Telephone Bill" as written by and Kt Tunstall....
Well, call this number now
Even though I'm feeling low myself
I'll try and help
Talk for as long as you can afford
Pay me with your idle chatter
I'll give you my usual patter
You may be mad as a hatter
Voices never tell

If I fill a space that so is hollow
Surely peak rate doesn't matter
Rule the world and marry Francis
I'm sorry that this call is tapped
So there's no trouble
After 10 the rates go double
But if you are on a roll
We'll carry on long distance kissing
I'll be the brunette that you are missing

Well, if I could see your eyes
Maybe I could take you as sincere
But as it stands, you're just a joke for the girls in the bar
Please don't think your name is sticking
As you watch your units ticking
I know if I ask you to hold
Ask me if you carn

If I fill a space that so is hollow
Surely peak rate doesn't matter
Rule the world and marry Francis
I'm sorry that this call is tapped
So there's no trouble
After 10 the rates go double
But if you are on a roll
We'll carry on long distance kissing
I'll be the brunette that you are missing

Tell me what you want and I'll be what you want

    General CommentSo, i'm guessing she has a guy friend who's a good guy and everything, but rather hopeless when it comes to love. So Katie helps him out by "filling a space that's so hollow", playing the part of a girlfriend. Neither of them can really afford these long calls, but he's worth the trouble.

    Am i being too literal?
