Faith Hill Sleeping With The Telephone Lyrics

Last updated: 10/07/2007 11:00:00 AM

Verse 1: (Faith Hill)
I knew who he was when I took his name
But somehow knowing is just not the same late at night
He knows the danger but he does what he does
He calls it duty, but I call it love
So here I am
While hes gone to some foreign land

Chorus: (Both)
And I cry cuz i'm all alone
And the nights get so cold and long
And I try not to think he wont come home
But I'm sleepin' with the telephone

Verse 2: (Reba McEntire)
The yellow ribbon on my neighbors gate
Always reminds me that someones awake just like me
I hear the sirens and I watch the news
He laughs and leaves with his gun and his blue uniform
And I pray god keeps him safe from harm

Chorus: (Both)
And I cry cuz i'm all alone
And the nights get so cold and long
And I try not to think he wont come home
But I'm sleepin' with the telephone

Bridge: (Both)
I lose him in my darkest dreams
And my blood runs cold and my heart skips a beat
So I get up
I cant take anymore
Sometimes I hate how much I love him
But everyday I love him more

And I try not to think he wont come home
But I'm sleepin' with the telephone

(Reba McEntire)
Somethin' awakes me from where he should be
I reach for him
The telephone rings
