Original Version 3:36

It’s a madman’s situation
Reminiscing in the rain
And I’ve lost your love again
I call your name

And I don’t wanna think about it
When I go to sleep at night
Can you hear it in the wind?
I call your name

I call your name
I call your name
I call your name
I call your name

And I close the door behind me
And I turn the lights all down
There’s no one there beside me
I call your name

And I don’t wanna think about it
But I wind up all the same
Nothing’ll ever change
I call your name

I call your name
I call your name
I call your name
I call your name

Lie awake under the stars
Lie awake under the stars
Lie awake under the stars
Lie awake under the stars

I call your name
I call your name
I call your name
I call your name

Per: This is some sort of remix EMI Europe wanted us to do. We never liked this version. It sounded much better on the P.O.P-album in Clarence Ubermensch’s production!
