To tell the truth it's really such a sad affair Standing here waiting in the cold night air But Ive got to make this call Cause my heart is breaking.
I hear the bips drop a coin in the slot Has it been that long I thought you'd forgotten me Well I know that it's getting late But I just couldnt wait
Will I have the nerve to say I just wanna come back You shouldn't just go away I just wanna come back
Ive been struck by such a bad luck I need a place a little happiness and some love I think I can see it now Now let me paint the picture
Its twelve oclock and the curtains are drawn They're counting sheep down in orchard road Youre hanging on the telephone line tonight And I wish I could be in orchard road
Not much been happening here I think Ive got a job They're gonna call me next week And I'll be working out of town But it sure beats hanging around
What's that? tomorrow at two Youre kidding me -- no Is it allright with you I don't know what to say Itll be like a holiday
When you say you're all alone Makes me wanna come back And this house is not a home I just gotta go back
Its twelve ten when I put down the phone The moons shining down on orchard road And Im feeling like a schoolboy again and tonight Ill see you in my dreams of orchard road
Its funny but I thought I'd never go back I think sometimes I might loose track But I remember you and the things we do And I want it back.
In orchard road youve got my heart I left it in your doorway In orchard road a welcome back Is waiting there just for me In orchard road the sun will shine Again I know I know In orchard road you keep my love Just waiting there for me
Its eight oclock and the dawns arrived In orchard road it's breakfast time I climb in my car and I turn the key and Im gone I am coming home To orchard road
