Labi Siffre - Bless The Telephone Lyrics




It's nice to hear your voice again
I've waited all day long
Even wrote a song for you
It's strange, the way you make me feel
With just a word or two
I'd like to do the same for you

Its nice to hear you say "hello"
And "how are things with you - I love you"
But very soon it's time to go
An office job to do
While I'm here writing songs for you

Strange, how a phone call can change your day
Take you away, away
From the feeling of being alone
Bless the telephone

It's nice, the way you say my name
Not very fast or slow, just soft and low
The same as when you tell me how you feel
I feel the same way too
I'm very much in love with you

    I always sang this slower so decided to upload a slower version. I know its deliberate, it just seems super fast.

    'Cause when you tell me how you feel
    I feel the same way too
    I'm very much in love with you.

    I'm very much in love with you.

  23. Cliff Minors

    Actually thought this was Paul Simon when I first heard it, it's brilliant!

    ZMC Jones

    Cliff Minors Paul Simon is amazing too I can see why you’d think it him

    ste blease

    Spot on Cliff I was also convinced it was early folky Paul Simon. Its spot on for him in early 60s and something he would do but it also proves just how flamin good Labi Siffe is and was and still is.

  24. Jordan Palmer

    These words can relate to 99% of the world the other 1% are cold heartless people.
