Handwritten lyrics for "Please Pick Up the Phone"

Please pick up the phone
let me know you're home
let me know you're there
let me know you care
i heard somethin today
that blew my mind away
Please pick up that phone right now
and make me feel O.K. (and tell me you're ok)
Johnny heard from Marge
She heard yesterday
if you got somethin to say
go 'head make my day
I just hate to have to
find out this way

Show me how to ride this thing
So I won't fall when I'm on my own
I've heard it's only bad until
You get the hang then it's all downhill

Don't let go until I say it's time for me to go

I've seen too many others fall
as they were left to go alone
I want you to stay with me
??? my course until I'm right
