All Night Operator - Bryan Ferry

Can't you hear me talkin' to you
I'm callin' you one more time
All night operator
Dial me a better line
Can't you hear me talkin' to you
Do telephones make you cry?
I try to write letters
Only my pen runs dry
Though my words sound so confused
The feeling is running strong
Stick tight operator
Help me to pass it on
final connection
A bridge before the fall
Receiver unrestin'
I count on your call
Am I just a number to you
A handful of empty sighs
All night operator
Reader between the lies
With half the world dreamin'
I see through your eyes
A switchboard breathin'
A diary of crossed lines
Can't you hear me talkin' to you
I'm callin' you one more time
All night operator
Dial me better line
If you feel me driftin' away
Slippin' into my song
All night operator
All of a sudden - gone
