Jeff Lynne - Telephone Line (Acoustic)

Jeff Lynne - Telephone Line (Acoustic)





"Telephone Line" is a song by English rock band Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). It was released on May 1977 through Jet Records and United Artists Records as part of the album A New World Record. It gained huge success, reaching Top 10 in Australia, US, UK and number 1 in Canada.


The ballad is track two on their 1976 album, A New World Record, and was the final single to be released from the album until September 2006, when "Surrender" was released from the expanded reissue of the album. It became their biggest single success in the US and was their first UK gold award for a single. With ELO's continuing success in America it seemed obvious to Jeff Lynne to use an American ring tone during the song.







Lyrics


Hello, how are you? Have you been alright through all those lonely Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely nights? That's what I'd say, I'd tell you everything If you pick up that telephone, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, how you feelin'? Are you still the same, don't you realize the things we did We did were all for real, not a dream I just can't believe they've all faded out Of view, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh

Blue days, black nights I look into the sky (the love you need ain't gonna see you through) And I wonder why (the little things you planned ain't comin' true) Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I'm living in twilight Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I'm living in twilight

Okay, so no one's answering Well, can't you just let it ring a little longer Longer, longer oh, I'll just sit tight Through shadows of the night Let it ring forever more, oh

Blue days, black nights, doo wah doo lang I look into the sky (the love you need ain't gonna see you through) And I wonder why (the little things you planned ain't comin' true) Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I'm living in twilight Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I'm living in twilight

Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I'm living in twilight Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time, I'm living in twilight
