Paperback town by Leo Sayer
To tell the truth it's really such a sad affairstanding here waiting in the cold night airbut I've got to make this call'cause my heart is breaking.
I hear the bips drop a coin in the slothas it been that longI thought you'd forgotten mewell I know that it's getting latebut I just couldn't wait
will I have the nerve to sayI just wanna come backyou shouldn't just go awayI just wanna come back
I've been struck by such a bad luckI need a place a little happiness and some loveI think I can see it nownow let me paint the picture
it's twelve o'clock and the curtains are drawnthey're counting sheep down in orchard roadyou're hanging on the telephone line tonightand I wish I could be in orchard road
not much been happening hereI think I've got a jobthey're gonna call me next weekand I'll be working out of townbut it sure beats hanging around
what's that? Tomorrow at twoyou're kidding me -- nois it allright with youI don't know what to sayit'll be like a holiday
when you say you're all alonemakes me wanna come backand this house is not a homeI just gotta go back
it's twelve ten when I put down the phonethe moon's shining down on orchard roadand I'm feeling like a schoolboy again and tonightI'll see you in my dreams of orchard road
it's funny but I thought I'd never go backI think sometimes I might loose trackbut I remember you and the things we doand I want it back.
in orchard road you've got my heartI left it in your doorwayIn orchard road a welcome backis waiting there just for meIn orchard road the sun will shineagain I know I knowin orchard road you keep my lovejust waiting there for me
