WHEN THE TELEPHONE RINGS

Walter Salas-Humara - voice and guitar

Don Piper - supporting voice

Chilling Autumn rains
Make curtain skyscrapers
More beautiful to see

With the water dripping
I wish somehow I could wash
This perishing world

Even in New York
How I long for New York
When the telephone rings

A withered dream
In the windy fields of memory
Piercing like a knife

Coming out to view
The truth of flowers blooming
In a concrete box

Even in New York
How I long for New York
When the telephone rings

The winter days go on
But how far away
This time called long ago

Then the new year arrives
In utter simplicity
In a deep blue sky

Even in New York
How I long for New York
When the telephone rings
