Love It When You Call
The Feeling Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I found a switch, you turned it on
I hit the ditch, you carried on
I was so near, now you're so far
Are you quite sure, just who you are?

Oh I-I-I-I-I-I, know you could choose a friend but you don't seem to have the time
Oh I-I-I-I-I-I, I wonder if you ever get to say what's on your mind
Well take a little time
Come on, take a little time

I love it when you call
I love it when you call
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
Say what's the complication
It's only conversation
I love it when you call
But you never call at all, whoa-oh
(He loves it when you call)
(He loves it when you call)

Remember me, I used to be
Your best time buddy that you couldn't wait to see
But gettin' old, it takes a toll
And hearts getting broken lead to people growin' cold

Oh I-I-I-I-I-I, I'm thinking were the kind that's got a tale on either side
Oh I-I-I-I-I-I, I'm gonna be the one who makes you stop and realize

You could have it all
Yeah, we should have it all

I love it when you call (He loves it when you call)
I love it when you call (He loves it when you call)
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
So what's the complication
It's only conversation
I love it when you call
But you never call at all, whoa-oh
(He loves it when you call)
(He loves it when you call)

Now I wonder where you've been
Yeah I wonder who you've seen
Now I hope you find your dream
When you do I really hope its all it seems

I love it when you call
I love it when you call
I love it when you call
But you never call at all
Say what's the complication
It's only conversation




I love it when you call
But you never call at all, whoa!

Encontré un interruptor
Lo encendió
Golpea la zanja
Y continuó
Estaba tan cerca
Ahora estás tan lejos
¿Estás seguro?
¿Quién eres?

Puedes elegir a un amigo, pero no tienes tiempo

Me pregunto si alguna vez llegarás a decir lo que tienes en mente
Tómate un poco de tiempo, solo un poco de tiempo

Me encanta cuando llamas
Me encanta cuando llamas
Me encanta cuando llamas
Pero nunca llamas para nada
Entonces, ¿cuál es la complicación si es sólo una conversación?
Me encanta cuando llamas
Pero nunca llamas para nada

Acuérdate de mí, solía ser el mejor compañero de tiempo
A quien no podías esperar a ver
Pero envejecer, tiene su peaje
Y los corazones se rompen conducen a la gente que envejece

Estoy volteando con una moneda que tiene una cola a cada lado

Voy a ser el que te haga parar y darte cuenta
Podrías tenerlo todo
Deberíamos tenerlo todo

Me encanta cuando llamas
Me encanta cuando llamas
Me encanta cuando llamas
Pero nunca llamas para nada
Entonces, ¿cuál es la complicación es sólo conversación?
Me encanta cuando llamas
Pero nunca llamas para nada

Sí, me pregunto dónde has estado
Sí, me pregunto a quién has visto
Y espero que encuentres tu tren
Cuando te ganas la vida y esperas que sea todo lo que parece

Me encanta cuando llamas
Me encanta cuando llamas
Me encanta cuando llamas
Pero nunca llamas para nada
Entonces, ¿cuál es la complicación es sólo conversación?
Me encanta cuando llamas
Pero nunca llamas para nada

I found a switch
You turn it on
I hit the ditch
You carried on
I was so near
Now you're so far
Are you quite sure
Just who you are?
Oh I, know you could use a friend but you don't seem to have the time
Oh and I, I wonder if you'll ever get to say what's on your mind
Oh Take a little time
C'mon Take a little time

Your best-time buddy

And hearts getting broken leads to people growing cold
