Hello yes that's what I said
I guess I thought that I was dead
So I just called you from my bed to say hello 
You see I got this funny notion
Life is only just an ocean 
I've been drowning in emotion 
Now I'm swimming back to shore 
And I'd like to talk to you

 CHORUS 
If you want to you can call I'll be around 
If you want to you can write this number down
If you want to
If you want to leave a message at the tone
If you want to you can call me here at home
If you want to
I'll be alone 

So now I've called 
Yes it's been a couple days
Okay seven this I know
But I've been movin' kinda slow
So I called oh it must be so appalling 
If you think that I've been stalling 
This is me now I am calling 
And I'm better than before 
And I'd like to talk to you

Don't you want to know don't you want to be
 Someone who takes a chance 
On a fool like me
 Staring at the door 
 Staring down the hall 
 Waiting my whole life just for you to call

 Hello yes that's what I said
I am breathing I'm not dead
I'm waiting here now in my bed 
And I'd like to talk to you

If you want to let your fingers do the walk
If you want to I got hours I can talk
If you want to
