As I wait for
the phone to ring...
Did you forget?
Are you sleeping?

Sitting here hoping you will call
with every minute that passes by,
the more I fall...
in love with you;

as every second of my watch
clicks towards midnight;
my heart suffers a tremendous pain.
I try to find simple excuses,
but how I feel remains the same.

Do you care that I'm waiting?
You say you're starting to love me...
I really thought I wouldn't be waiting...
for this phone to ring
sitting in the dark.

I wish you'd love me,
but I guess I'm asking God for too much;
Cause the clock just hit midnight,
I'm probably a fool that expects too much...
