about

This is, unfortunately, a kind of true story. My phone rang one day. I picked up and heard a perfectly real voice say, “Is Robert there?” I paused. I needed time to gather myself. Falling in love can be disorienting. “Is Robert there?” she said again. With great pain and after another uncomfortable pause, I said, “I’m afraid you have the wrong number.” And just like that she was gone. Somewhere out there… I can always dream.

WRONG NUMBER
copyright 2007 john common music

I didn't know, that I was falling
it wasn't me, that you were calling
I close my eyes and hear you whisper words into my ear
words I thought that only I could hear but I was wrong

I stood alone, outside your building
you weren't home, I felt silly
maybe it's just better if we never even meet
I'd probably fall down at your feet and kiss the ground

but I can always dream

would I find the right words to say
could I make you turn the other way
maybe you could call me back today

I'll get along, just fine without you
I'll sing this song, instead of doubt you
it's easier than waiting by a phone that never rings
I'd rather sing alone than never sing, this is goodbye

but I can always dream

would I find the right words to say
could I make you turn the other way
maybe you could call me back today
