"Answer The Phone" as written by Don Gilmore, Matthew Murphy Karges, Charles Stanton Frazier, Mark Mcgrath, Rodney Sheppard and Craig Anthony Bullock....
We're on this roller coaster ride
Hold on, I'll stay here by your side
We head up to the sky then we slide back down
Upside down try to figure out
Not sure if we could work it out
I want to be alone but you feel like home

Answer the phone
I know that you're home
I want to get you alone
And do it again, do it again

Answer the phone
I know that you're home
I want to get you alone
And do it again, do it again
The signals all are flashing red
It doesn't matter what was said
This bed is much too big without me and you

This all seems so ridiculous
Why can't we just get over this
Don't make me say the obvious

Without you
Answer the phone
I know that you're home
I want to get you alone
And do it again, do it again

Answer the phone
I know that you're home
I want to get you alone
And do it again, do it again

I practice all my lies to a telephone while you were sleeping
I practice all my lies to a telephone while you
Were sleeping
I practice all my lies to a telephone while you were sleeping
I remember the way you curled your toes
On the side of the stage at all our shows
And the glow on your face just because of one rose
And when I wake up in the morning
And you're wearing my clothes

Answer the phone
I know that you're home
I want to get you alone
And do it again, do it again

Answer the phone
I know that you're home
I want to get you alone
And do it again, do it again
Do it again, do it again
And do it again, do it again
I want to do it again do it again
And do it again, do it again

    General Commenti got this CD over a year ago, basically when it came out and this immediately became my favorite song. When It's Over was the featured one, but Answer the Phone is WAY better!

    General CommentWOAH!!! this is song is what follow the expression of "Greatness" I absoultely love it!
    I think is about a relashinship that was so involve in sex that they didn't get to think maybe there was something else in there... So when she leaves him... he starts realizing he is in love with this girl so he just want to call her and say something like; "Shall we try it once more".
    wow it really KICK ASS!

    General Commenthaha ok so i think that maybe he might have woke up and rolled over and been like whoa why the f--- are you in bed with me?! and then she got all upset and ran out and he was like aww i didnt mean that and is leaving this on her answering machine saying that hes sorry and he didnt mean it like that and please just pick up the phone... and yeah... my thoughts
