I’m looking ‘round
I search the ground for pages
You’re back in town
You disappeared for ages
Can I depend
On a warm reception?
I’ll wait it out
No signs of desperation

Telephone,
It’s you I love
Telephone,
You screwed things up

Telephone,
It’s you I love
Telephone,
You screwed things up

My wrist is ticking
I slow it all down, waiting
I jot a song off
By solitude creating
But you –
You are why I’m here
You’re less a person
More a social fear
Telephone,
It’s you I love
Telephone,
You screwed things up

Telephone,
It’s you I love
Telephone,
You screwed things up

You will see
I can make you wonder
You and me –
Have we got the thunder?
I will not
Be resigned to never
You will see
As I hold your number

Telephone,
It’s you I love
Telephone,
I’ve screwed things up

Telephone,
It’s you I love
Telephone,
I’ve screwed things up

You’re not surrounded
Your doubt’s unfounded
Maybe
You’ll call her up

You’re not surrounded
Your doubt’s unfounded
Maybe
You’ll call her up

You’re not surrounded
Your doubt’s unfounded
Maybe

I’ll call her up.
