I've been away from you for far too long
Too much chances make my heart go frantic
I want to tell you what's been goin' on,
Operator give me Trans Atlantic
I sit alone as the night goes by
Stare at the phone and wait for your reply

Long long distance love affair, I can't find you anywhere
I call you on the telefone, but you're never home
I gotta get a message to you, I want to tell you what I'm going through
What in the world's comin' over you

How come you're acting like a total stranger
I try to reach you but I can't get through
I got this feeling that my heart's in danger
I got your letter it was perfectly clear
Havin' a ball, and wishin' you are here

Long long distance love affair, I can't find you anywhere
I call you on the telefone, but you're never home
I gotta get a message to you, I want to tell you what I'm going through
What in the world's comin' over you

Premonition is a funny thing, a familiar kind of pain and easy
Like knowin' when the phone is gonna ring
Too many times and it'll drive you crazy
I hear your echo in the longer hall
Call out your name, but no-one's there at all

Long long distance love affair, I can't find you anywhere
I call you on the telefone, but you're never home

Long long distance love affair, I can't find you anywhere
I call you on the telefone, but you're never home
