lyrics

when she feels alone she has a keycard to my hotel room
it's very simple honey, red means stay away and green means go
a soft metal click, break the kettles and sink the ship
i've gambled away everything i had, she bites her lip

no one's gonna love you like a telephone
baby keeps on growing until one day she blows
there are no voices in the static no matter how hard you comb

she's cautiously coy, you almost hear the waver in her voice
turning every second thought or reason not into white noise
the damage is done, you're far too young to not believe in love
she likes the way that sweat prevents her skin from ever really being touched

no one's gonna love you like a telephone
baby keeps on growing until one day she blows
there are no voices in the static no matter how hard you comb
and everything comes crashing in a tidal wave
draining the pacific in a teenaged haze
some things last for ever while some blow up in your face

i only fall in love with leading ladies
and i promised you the part
now you only fall in love with leading men
and i know it's both our fault i never was

i hate to say this but no one's gonna love you like a telephone
tearing through your suitcase in a frantic hope
but no numbered cocktail napkin will stop you from getting old
and everything comes crashing in your tidal wave
knocking down the buildings on the coastal plain
i'll leave a keycard with the front desk if you ever decide to stay
