You called all the way from America And said hang on to love girl But the weeks and the months and the tears Passed by And my eyes couldn't stand the strain Of that promised love. You called all the way from America And said I'll soon be home girl But the years and the tears and the fears Passed by And my heart couldn't stand the pain Of that promised love. I stayed all alone and I waited 'round For you to knock at my door But the knock never came and no ring At all And now I sit and wonder why You made that first call.
