ANDY BELL lyrics - Don't Call Me Up

ANDY BELL
"Don't Call Me Up"
(Ashton / Bayliss / Frost)

A boy once called Andy
Gave head in parks in Hanley
And ran away into my arms
I said never look back
In anger or fear
I'll love you 'til the end of time
Your wish is mine, do you hear?

He said, "I can't believe you love me
The characters I hide behind
The scene was set in empathy
I played my life for laughs
But you saw me."

And if our laughter hides our sin
Then in a sitcom we have been
But the jokes were wearing thin
The love that stopped did not begin

So, shall we hide behind the light?
Or take our curtain call tonight?
Instead of all those might have beens
Just get the hell out of my sight!

Don't call me up!
Don't call me up!
Don't call me up,
You bring me down!

Don't call me up!
Don't call me up!
Don't call me up,
You bring me down!

It isn't that I hate you
I've just moved along the line
Our laughter and our friendship
Were important at the time
'Til we talked of disappointments
Like some mutual loser's club
And you hustled round the late bars
So you could get yourself the rub

Don't call me up!
Don't call me up!
Don't call me up,
You bring me down!

Don't call me up!
Don't call me up!
Don't call me up,
You bring me down!

We were our own royalty
My crown, my orb, my sceptre
And I was so pleased, my love
When you said I almost made you forget her
But, I'm not your cure
Though I'm glad that you feel better
So I walked out of your life
In a sympathetic letter
