"I Am Always the One Who Calls" as written by and David Shannon Bazan....
Satellites mediate for us
The days events through fiber optics.
I hope we can change the saying.

I wouldn't mind but you are my only hope.
I wouldn't mind but you are my only hope.

Clear as a bell are the short breaths
That you take when you're distracted.
Same as the way that you roll your eyes
When I've asked too many stupid questions.

My faith in zeroes and ones to host our romance,
Rests on hope you gave that I've some claim to your heart.

I wouldn't mind but you are my only hope.
I wouldn't mind but you are my only hope.

Clear as a bell are the short breaths
That you take when you're distracted.
Same as the way that you roll your eyes
When I've asked too many questions.

I will call you in three weeks,
Maybe then you'll have some more to say.

    General CommentBoy oh boy do I know how this feels.

    "I will call you in three weeks, maybe then you'll have some more to say."

    I think any song is open to any interpretation by anybody. To each his or her own! If it means something special and important to a person, but it means something wholly different to another but still equally special and important, so be it.

    To me, it's a long distance relationship in which the singer gives a lot more affection than is returned.
    And again, to me, the singer wants to not care about it, to be all right with being the one who calls, but it's not. And it hurts.

    Goodness, this song! Amazing.
