SAINT ETIENNE | He's On The Phone (Motiv8 mix)

LYRICS:

He's on the phone
Ans she wants to go home
Shoes a hand don't make a sound
It's time to go

Some day, some day
He's on the phone

Doesn't want to go home
The hotel life, forget your wife
You're on your own

Academia girl, her life's a gas
She loves the trash inside his world

Can't find his way there
Got the cash
Feeling flash in Leicester Square ooh

Yes, she never meant to call
She did anyway
And now he's trying to find the words to say
Some day, some day

It's five to twelve
And she's nervous as hell
With nothing to lose
It's hard to choose, it's hard to tell

Skin is dewdrop and warm
The lipstick kiss, reminisce
Awake 'til dawn

Yes, she never meant to call
She did anyway
And now he's trying to find the words to say
Some day, some day

C'est alors que je suis posement blesse
Par la commande immortelle
Je ressurecte encore et encore
Je ressurecte encore et encore

He's on the phone
Ans she wants to go home
Shoes a hand don't make a sound
It's time to go

Yes, she never meant to call
She did anyway
And now he's trying to find the words to say
Some day, some day
