Long Distance Love Affair

Here’s one of my favourite songs from the 80s. As a kid, I was always scared to see the video. Now I am braver…only 2% braver.

I’ve been away from you for far too long
Too much chances make my heart go frantic
I wanna 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

Chorus:
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 wanna 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

chorus

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

I saw Love Aaj Kal yesterday and it had a similar theme. The movie was OK, it lasted for 1.5 hours only. Seems we saw a badly edited version. It left me thinking if long distance love affairs actually work.

No further probing. I am no one to comment on it. I rest my case.
