My friends, your friends
Everybody's whispering
The same old telephone games

High school is over
We don't grow up, no, we just get older
Such a shame

And we can't shake it
Is there any truth behind what
They are saying, babe?

I'm here, you're there
Talk is cheap, it's everywhere
Denial eases the pain

But when the summer turns to fall
I won't be waiting for your call
I'm only holding on, holding on for so long
You've got me holding on
On the line

It's the talk of the town
Has my heart turned upside down?
The same old telephone games

Send a message through the wire
Set the rumor mill on fire
Watch it burn up in flames

I believe when I see
You standing in front of me
Eye to eye, face to face

Are you loving someone new?
Has a change of heart changed you?
Maybe I'm going insane

But when the summer turns to fall
I won't be waiting for your call
I'm only holding on, holding on for so long
You've got me holding on
On the line
