i am not supposed to be here
no i quite simply lost the time
and all these people gathered round me
and oh they are no friends of mine

pick up the phone pick up the phone
baby i need you
pick up the phone pick up the phone
baby i need you alone

i've been lookin in the mirror
i hardly recognize my face
my mind aint getting any clearer
an open book i lost my place

oh my sweet penelope
you waited all this time for me
but i am found
i am known
i am finally comin' home
i'm alive
i'm not alone

pick up the phone pick up the phone
baby i need you
pick up the phone pick up the phone
baby i need you alone

    General CommentThis is about Penelope and Desmond from Lost. Great song. Great scene it's based on.

    My InterpretationI guess it could kind of be about Penelope and Odysseus in The Odyssey. (Oh my sweet penelope / you waited all this time for me, etc., etc).
