FAITH HILL lyrics : "sleeping with the telephone"


f/ Reba McEntire




Verse 1: (Faith Hill)


I knew who he was when I took his name


But somehow knowing is just not the same late at night

He knows the danger but he does what he does


He calls it duty, but I call it love


So here I am

While hes gone to some foreign land





Chorus: (Both)

And I cry cuz i'm all alone


And the nights get so cold and long


And I try not to think he wont come home

But I'm sleepin' with the telephone





Verse 2: (Reba McEntire)

The yellow ribbon on my neighbors gate


Always reminds me that someones awake just like me


I hear the sirens and I watch the news

He laughs and leaves with his gun and his blue uniform


And I pray god keeps him safe from harm




Chorus: (Both)


And I cry cuz i'm all alone


And the nights get so cold and long

And I try not to think he wont come home


But I'm sleepin' with the telephone




Bridge: (Both)


I lose him in my darkest dreams


And my blood runs cold and my heart skips a beat

So I get up


I cant take anymore


Sometimes I hate how much I love him

But everyday I love him more





And I try not to think he wont come home

But I'm sleepin' with the telephone




(Reba McEntire)

Somethin' awakes me from where he should be


I reach for him

The telephone rings
