give me a call

Called him up, said “hey where’d you go?
when you got up off that stool?
were thinking we would never see?
Did you think we’re all just fools?”

I knew then, By the silence on the line
That I could duck what was next
It was getting clear, even to me
He’s living in a different kind of complex

Hey, sometimes you fall
But you get back up
When your friends call
You don’t tell ’em that stuff
Don’t expect me to believe
That bull you’re trying to sell

There’s nothing inside
Or lurking out there
That scares me enough
to make me wanna hide
I’m not going to leave
When you’re going through hell

Hey, man, give me call…

Waited a few hours to call him back
But the phone just rang and rang.
No voice mail, no way to leave
the essence of what I had to say

Hopped in the car just to see
If the worst might have come true
And he was on the floor crying
And giving it all up to you

Hey, sometimes you fall
But you get back up
When your friends call
You don’t tell ’em that stuff
Don’t expect me to believe
That bull you’re trying to sell

There’s nothing inside
Or lurking out there
That scares me enough
to make me wanna hide
I’m not going to leave
When you’re going through hell

Hey, man, give me call…
