phone call from the moon lyrics – adrian belew

“h*llo, honey, i hope i didn’t wake you up,
but i had to hear your voice
i’m standing in another phone booth,
somewhere on the moon

i’m alright, i guess, except for all the stuff i miss
the things we used to do
i never knew i could be this blue

it’s so quiet here
like the stars are sayin’,
“shh, be quiet”

so, how are the kids?
did i miss his birthday again?
aw, no… could you tell him i’m sorry,
sometimes my mind gets blurry
and i lose all sense of time

time moves slowly
like the curve of the earth

aw, honey, i wish i really could
reach out and touch you… but that’s not real
like the moon is blue… like this lonely view
from a sad phone… out here on the moon

and it feels like one long lonely night
you know what i mean,
that’s why i called”
