MA BELL

The things that you say send me away

Your touch is enough I forget who I am

I don’t mind at all just to wait for your call

With my heart on my sleeve and my head in my hands

 

I’ve got the dime if you’ve got the time

Me and Ma Bell will be perfectly clear

I hear what you say but you’re too far away

My arms aren’t so long I can touch you from here

 

The touch of your lips and the world starts to slip

But kisses don’t travel through telephone lines

I try to get through with a picture of you

But I can’t use a picture to look in our eyes

 

I’ve got the dime if you’ve got the time

Me and Ma Bell will be perfectly clear

I hear what you say but you’re too far away

My arms aren’t so long I can touch you from here

 

The things that you say send me away

Your touch is enough I forget who I am

I don’t mind at all just to wait for your call

With my heart on my sleeve and my head in my hands

 

I’ve got the dime if you’ve got the time

Me and Ma Bell will be perfectly clear

I’m all alone with you on the phone

But I’d still prefer to be holding you near

There used to be a time when long-distance love traveled through copper wire, and we used to call the telephone company 'Ma Bell'.
