Track Name: Paris Can't Have You
Dear lover
It's been seven weeks and a day and 22 hours
Since you stepped on a plane and left me with flowers
The Champs-Élysées, a whole world away from
Home, where I lay
Lonely bones, and I wait
By the phone

Your night is my day when you are so far away
And it's hard to sleep all alone
If you're feeling tempted to stay
Listen to me when I say
That Paris can't have you
'Cause Los Angeles needs you home

Oh honey
How much longer now till you've done what you went to do?
I am strong, but there are some things, without you
That lie here undone, and I have begun to
Fancy the night of your landing
When I'll have my man
But until then ...

Your night is my day when you are so far away
And it's hard to sleep all alone
If you're feeling tempted to stay
Listen to me when I say
That Paris can't have you
'Cause Los Angeles needs you home
Track Name: Don't Call Me
Don’t call me when you’re lonely
Don’t call me when you’re blue
If you call me when you’re broken-hearted
Then I’m not the girl for you
Don’t ask me to come over
When you can’t sleep at night
I’m not looking for a good time
I’m looking for the love of my life

Don’t use my number
When all of your friends are out of town
I’m not one to be impressed by your attention
When there’s no one else around
And even if you’re bored out of your ever-loving mind
I’m not looking for just one night
I’m looking for the love of my life

So I don’t want to hear from you when you’ve been drinking
Or otherwise not thinking very straight
So I hope this message really sinks in
’Cause darlin’, you have much too much at stake
If the first time you use these seven digits
It’s for any reason less than to be true
There won’t be a second call
So careful how you make your move

Don’t call me when you’ve struck out
With some other gal you’ve had your eye on
’Cause this is not a shoulder to cry on
This is a hand to have and hold
Pick up that phone, dear
And I’ll be the ride of your life
Go ahead and get me on the line
When you’re looking for a love for all time
Go ahead and get me on the line
When you’re looking for the love of your life
