"Can I Call You?" as written by and David Ashworth Gates....
If i'm sitting home alone, and i'm by my telephone. Can i call you?
If i spoke to you before, but i need to hear some more. Can i call you?
The telephone just ain't enough, for this lonely night
It's getting just too tough, to take it.
If i come on your door knocking, when we're done through talking. Can i call you?

Because i need love so badly.
But you never see me through.
That's why i keep reaching out for you.

If my money's running low and i need a place to go. Can i call you?
If i've got a fresh supply or some wine to get us high. Should I call you up?
If by chance you should discover, that i've tried another lover.
Just to see how good you are baby.
When you're all done scream and shouting, no more throwing things and pouting. Can i call you?

Because i need you so near me.
And i can't let you go.
So don't ever tell me, tell me no.

(Guitar solo)

Because i need love so badly.
But you never see me through.
That's why i keep reaching out for you.
