i had a lover, but haven't we all
he had to leave so sometimes i'd call
i was lost and livin' in the real world
satellites are blinkin' all through the night
wishes like this don't seem right
rising and falling as i make my request
hello, operator, can i make this collect?
higher and higher burns the fire
love's lost on the telephone wire
too high to reach, too hot to hold
wishing on telstar, should've been told
person to person, looking for affection
do i just break through?
do i have to wait?
it sure hurts when you get away
my long distance lover, can i make you stay
