Somewhere in your building, a phone cuts the night
No way of knowing who's on the line
You don't wake, I wonder how I got here
Tried to remember where I was this time last year
And for minutes, I lay listening
Wondering what news this song's heralding
Is it something of worth I have yet to discover?
Ringing continues, could it be your last lover?

There's a version of the future
Hanging close above my head
But I can't get to it
Searching around the room
To build the pieces of a life
I can't make them fit

Darkness lifts and I think of the door
I think I like you, but I'm never that sure
One day will you call me when you're half asleep?
Dialing a number that's incomplete

There's a version of the future
Hanging close above my head
But I can't get to it
Searching around the room
To build the pieces of a life
I can't make them fit

In the dark I feel alone
'Til the sun comes up
I'd like to go home
If I back out of this too soon
Will I be left only with torches for you?

We might not know each other in a week
We come with numbers to dial in our sleep
Listening to empty dialtones
Left with sleepless nights alone

There's a version of the future
Hanging close above my head
But I can't get to it
Searching around the room
To build the pieces of a life
But I can't make them fit

In the dark I feel alone
'Til the sun comes up
I'd like to go home
If I back out of this too soon
Will I be left only with torches for you?

There's a version of the future
Hanging close above my head
But I can't get to it
Searching around the room
To build the pieces of a life
But I can't make them fit

In the dark I feel alone
'Til the sun comes up
I'd like to go home
If I back out of this too soon
Will I be left only with torches for you?
