  • More than ever you're on my mind
    Being lonely ought to be a crime
    Watching TV to pass the time
    When all I think about is you
    And if you're thinking of me too
    I know you know what to do

    I wish the phone would ring
    I'd do anything
    Just to hear your voice
    Oh Baby, why
    Why do we have to fight
    Can't we both be right
    Wake me from this dream
    I wish the phone would ring
    Ring

    What we're doing doesn't feel so right
    And you should be here in my arms tonight
    Here in my heart I live all alone
    Locked up inside these lonely walls
    Can't go anywhere at all
    So afraid I'll miss your call

    I wish the phone would ring
    I'd do anything
    Just to hear your voice
    Oh Baby, why
    Why do we have to fight
    Can't we both be right
    Wake me from this dream
    I wish the phone would ring
    Ring

    All I do is think of you
    And if you're thinking of me too
    I know you know what to do

    I wish the phone would ring
    I'd do anything
    Just to hear your voice
    Oh Baby, why
    Why do we have to fight
    Can't we both be right
    Wake me from this dream
    I wish the phone would ring
    Ring

    I wish the phone would ring
    I'd do anything
    Just to hear your voice
    Oh Baby, why
    Why do we have to fight
    Can't we both be right
    Wake me from this dream
    I wish the phone would ring
    Ring
