Call and Answer
Barenaked Ladies Lyrics


I think it's getting to the point
Where I can be myself again (I think)
It's getting to the point
Where we have almost made amends
I think it's the getting to the point
That is the hardest part

And if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster
I'll point you home
I'll point you home

You think I only think about you
When we're both in the same room (you think)
I'm only here to witness
The remains of love exhumed
You think we're here to play
A game of who loves more than whom

And if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster

You think it's only fair to do what's best for
You and you alone (you think)
It's only fair to do the same to me
When you're not home
I think it's time to make this something that is
More than only fair

So if you call, I will answer
And if you fall, I'll pick you up
And if you court this disaster
I'll point you home

But I'm warning you, don't ever do
Those crazy, messed-up things that you do
If you ever do
I promise you, I'll be the first to crucify you
Now it's time to prove that you've come back here to rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild
Rebuild, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

Rebuild, rebuild

This song reminds me of sitting alone in my very small messy bedroom and sort of just quietly wondering what the future had in store for me. Hasn't been great so far, but I'm hanging in there anyway.

As the Brits say, keep your pecker up.

This song is part of my past life, a good time, one that was permanently etched, refuses to be forgotten. When I hear this song it triggers a slide show in my mind, it echo's through my soul, like a dream that actually happened, it brings a smile to my face, then a tear rolls down my cheek.... Good Fucking Tune !

Beautifully said. I don't have an association with this song as it's "new" to me ("and me alone" haha... ), but it's one of those that would do that for sure!

Very well stated.
