If you want things that way

Bluegrass -ish.  It is all just my peculiar anxiety about a long distance relationship. And other things.  :) It is in the queue to be recorded , I just about can play it all the way through without flubs!


Please Don’t Call (to say goodbye)


Call me when your train comes in and I’ll be there for you
Call if it’s running late, I’ll fidget and wait.
I hope that you don’t change your plans, that  would make me cry
Please don't ever call to say goodbye.                                                        


When there are clouds in the sky
I might decide not to open my eyes
I don’t need to see or be seen
as  long as I can hold you in my dreams


Send me letters through the mail, I’ll read them with my tea
Send postcards from everywhere you’ve been to see
A box  of souvenirs will surely make me sigh
But please don’t ever write to say goodbye


Some days the sun hurts my head
I lie so still it seems I am dead
But I am thinking and trying to believe
That if I disappeared you would grieve


I wait by the phone should you call to say goodnight
In this room of shadows edged in blue
My heart has never beat the same since I fell in love with you
Please don’t ever ring to say we’re through


It’s crazy but  true
I spend entire days singing songs to you
You might know the melodies
They are  songs you  sang to me


Call me when your train comes in and I’ll be there for you
Call if it’s running late, I’ll fidget and wait
I hope that you don’t change your plans, that will make me cry
Please don’t ever call to say goodbye.
