Call, call my name
Call it, call my name

Heard your voice this morning calling out my name
It had been so long since I heard it
That it didn't sound quite the same, no
But it let me know that my name had never really been spoken before
Before the day I carried you through the Bridle Path door

And ever since that day I haven't wanted anyone but you
And anybody who really knows me knows the truth

I just can't stop writing songs about you
I love you so much
I just can't wait to get my arms around you
And feel your touch
Yeah
If I don't see you real soon baby girl, I might go insane
I know it's only been about three hours but I love it when you call my name, yes I do

Heard a voice on the news saying people want to stop the war (stop the war, hmm!)
If they had a love as sweet as you they'd forget what they were fighting for
What's the matter with the world today?
The land of the free? Somebody lied
They can bug my phone and people 'round my home
They'll only see you and me making love inside

I just can't stop writing songs about you
I love you so much
I just can't wait to get my arms around you (I just can't wait)
And feel your touch (feel your touch)
If I don't see you real soon baby girl, I might go insane
I know it's only been about three hours but I love it when you call my name

I've never seen the moon look so lovely as the night I saw it with you
It let me know I'd never seen the moon before
(Never seen the moon before)
So many speak of the moon as though it had no flaws
But to compare it to a beauty like yours would give one pause
Nothing about you is false, that's why your love is real
(Talking 'bout real) that's why your love is real
God forbid if you belonged to another, I'd have to steal you (take you from your man)
I might be tempted to break the law (break the law 'round here)
Because your beauty, it gives one pause (yes, it does)
It slows me down

Just can't stop writing songs about you
I love you so much
I just can't wait to get my arms around you
And feel your touch
If I don't see you real soon baby girl, I might go insane
I know it's only been about three hours but I love it when you call my name

Honey, wynch'a call
Call my name
Call, call my name
That's right, call my name
