To tell the truth it's really such a sad affair Standing here waiting in the cold night air But I've 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 couldn't 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 o'clock and the curtains are drawn They're counting sheep down in orchard road You're 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 You're kidding me, no Is it alright with you I don't know what to say It'll 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 I'm 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 you've 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 o'clock and the dawns arrived In orchard road it's breakfast time I climb in my car and I turn the key and I'm gone I am coming home To orchard road
