If the Phone Doesn't Ring, It's Me

Album: Last Mango in Paris (1985)
  • Jimmy Buffett, Will Jennings, Michael Utley
    There are oceans of feelings between us
    Currents that take us and sweep us away
    That's why we seldom have seen us
    In the light of a cold hard day

    Lots of new friends with the same old answers
    Open your eyes, you might see
    Of our lives were that simple
    We'd live in the past
    If the phone doesn't ring, it's me

    If the phone doesn't ring
    You'll know that it's me
    I'll be out in the eye of the storm
    If the phone doesn't ring
    You'll know that I'll be
    Where someone can make me feel warm
    It's too bad we can't turn
    And live in the past
    If the phone doesn't ring, it's me

    I've had good days and bad days
    And going half mad days
    I try to let go but you're still on my mind
    I've lost all the old ways
    I'm searching for new plays
    Putting it all on the line

    Lots of new friends with the same old problems
    Open your eyes, you might see
    If our lives were that simple
    We'd live in the past
    If the phone doesn't ring, it's me

    If it takes all the future
    We'll live through the past
    If the phone doesn't ring, it's meWriter/s: JIMMY BUFFETT, MICHAEL EDWARD UTLEY, WILL JENNINGS
