If The Phone Doesn't Ring It's Me
   ------Jimmy Buffett

If The Phone Doesn't Ring It's Me
1985
"The time spent writing about the intensity involved in trying to
keep love together is short; but the endless research can kill you."
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
If 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
sponsored links
You'll know that it's me
I'll be out in the eye of the storm
If the phone doesn't ring
You 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 goin' half mad days
I try to let go but you're still on my mind
I've lost all the old ways
I'm searchin' for new plays
Puttin' 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 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 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

It's me, it's me
It's me, it's me
It's me, it's me
It's me, it's me

If it takes all the future
We'll live through the past
If the phone doesn't ring
It's me
