Dial My Number

Album: Make A Scene (2011)
  • When it's late at night
    I am your agenda
    When you hope to find
    I'm alone

    A coward's way to speak your verse
    A hidden message, broken words
    I read out lines but the truth may hurt
    I am only killing time with you

    You don't understand
    You don't know how I feel
    And so for what it's worth
    I wanna keep it real

    If you dial my number
    It's not enough
    You can wait and wonder
    If there's an "us"
    And when it's dead on the line
    Do you think, "The girl is mine"?
    You know I'm not falling under
    I'm not in love

    In the depths of your mind
    You think I'll surrender
    When you're lost at sea
    I'm on land

    It's only fair I set you right
    'Cause what we have won't see daylight
    It's just for now so enjoy the ride
    I'm having fun killing time with you

    You don't understand
    You don't know how I feel
    And so for what it's worth
    I wanna keep it real

    If you dial my number
    It's not enough
    You can wait and wonder
    If there's an "us"
    And when it's dead on the line
    Do you think, "The girl is mine"?
    You know I'm not on a number
    I'm not in love

    Yeah, you can dream about it
    But don't believe it's real at all Writer/s: LIAM HOWE, HANNAH ROBINSON, SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTER
