Lyrics

Oh, I know I don't own you
But I don't even know if I should phone you
Someone's sending me letters
saying you've been going with other fellas

And babe I want you
but I don't want to cry
or talk for an hour
to a machine on the end of a telephone line

Oh, it just kills me
when all you've got to do is call
Oh, do it anytime
'cos there's never no-one home
Never no-one home
Leave your message on the ansaphone

I'm not trying to be clever
but at least we're not still living together
All those calls in the evening
If I answered, they'd hang up without speaking

And babe I want you
but I don't want to cry
or talk for an hour
to a machine on the end of a telephone line

Oh, it just kills me
when all you've got to do is call
Oh, do it anytime
'cos there's never no-one home
Never no-one home
Leave your message on the ansaphone

(Beep)
"Hello, it's me. I just wanted to call and say... it doesn't matter what you get up to. I just want you to stay in touch. That's all."

Are you really not at home?
Or are you there but not alone
Screening calls you don't want to receive
meaning calls, calls that come from me

Oh, I need to see you
It's not enough for me just to hear you
You said you'd be here by ten thirty
but you wanna stay out and be dirty

Oh, it just kills me
when all you've got to do is call
Oh, do it anytime
'cos there's never no-one home
Never no-one home
Leave your message on the ansaphone
