Hey! Pick Up The Phone

from by Damond Moodie



Hey, pick up the phone
I am calling, to tell you that I love you
Hey, pick up the phone
Call me back child, so we can be alone

We met on a Tuesday at that teashop, on High St.
Stepped inside to get out of the rain
My eyes came across your face
The Earth seemed to slow it’s pace
And I heard the angels sing:
“Gotta get her number”
Ooh wee “I’m hit!” and going down quick
Won’t you throw me a life preserver?
Swear, I’m not some lunatic
She gave me a shy smile
I asked if I could dial
Her 10 digits - everyday
For the rest of my life


A text cannot convey the sincerity of my tone
Email isn’t any better; I need to purr into the phone
I wanna know your stories girl, faster than you can type
Let me hear your accent, this is more than love at first sight
The rain has stopped; we should take a stroll
So call me back, I really need to know
Why I’m so drawn to you
I can’t get you outta my mind

It’s like adrenaline; I am floating in,
Upside down, walk on the ceiling.
Swollen heart, catch my breath, waiting on this ring in my ear
