Come Write Me Down 2 (Lynn Noel) I opened the bills when I got home And I can't believe my telephone Why must you live so far away Why must I have so much to say Why must I have so much to say? Ah, where are the days when a parted pair Would write fond letters their love to share I dry my eyes and I sign my name When I write the check-- but it's not the same When I write the check it's not the same. Perhaps someday when I'm old and grey And the grandchildren have come to play We will climb the stairs to the attic box Where the old phone bills lie filed and locked Where the old phone bills lie filed and locked. Now (416) made me lose my head And (617) said we'd soon be wed And 251-4552 Was a love he swore forever true Was a love he swore forever true. Oh, where are the sketches and poetry Of the grand love letters that used to be And the tender words that I unfold To warm my heart when a love grows cold To warm my heart when a love grows cold. So I tie these bills with a ribbon blue I hear the phone, it must be you And with all my heart, you'll hear me say Hang up my love, write me today Hang up my love, write me today.
