  • Lyrics
  • This song is about a relationship that didn't work the first time, and now they're trying again. The singer wants his girl to know that if she calls, he'll answer the phone. Not the most romantic sentiment, but at least he's not making her leave a message.
  • Steven Page sings lead on this track. He wrote the song with Stephen Duffy, who later became Robbie Williams' songwriting partner. Duffy and Page also wrote the Stunt tracks "I'll Be That Girl" and "Alcohol."

  • Hadley from Auburn, MeI think this song is a heartbreaker...obviously, the woman has screwed him over, and he is willing to take her back to work it out. Of course, there is the caveat that if she does crazy stuff again, he will crucify her.
