When Love’s on the Phone (You Just Have to Answer)

Original Version 3:51

Mmmm yeah…

Some situations need a little heart
A tenderness that’s hard to understand
The falling in love for a start
Can easily turn to the fall of a man
You can’t run and hide even if you want to
Things must be done that should be done
You can’t run and hide when love’s got you tangled
Up on a tightrope your heart’s on the run

When love’s on the phone
You just have to answer
There’s no way you can hang up
When love’s on the phone
You just have to answer
Well, are you ready to fall in love?

And everybody needs a reason
Could be a dream of fire and ice
And you and me, we need each other
We need to be on each other’s minds
Yes, some situations need a little heart
To take to the sea with the sails unfurled
The falling in love for a start
Can easily turn to the fall of a girl

When love’s on the phone…
