about

Chandler demo in progress, November, '08 -a song of eternal male hope, longing, and confusion, as our hero goes overboard fantasizing about a phone machine message... will probably either add stuff to this version (for instance, right now there's hole for a solo -knock yourself out!), and/or do it over with actual other musicians... meanwhile, knew you'd want to hear it right away.

lyrics

I only talked to her once
And she was so shy
I couldn't get much information
But I'll never forget what she told me
Last night -oh no
I'll never forget what she told me.

She said I'm sorry;
The number you have
Dialed is not in service
Please hang up and try
Your call again later
Oh yeah
She encouraged me to give it a try

I knew just from the sound of her voice
Something heavy was on her mind
And if I played my cards right
What then?
Oh yeah
I knew I had to give it a try

That voice -so cynical
So cold and yet so warm
And someday we're gonna do the wang dang doodle
All night long
If I'm not reading her wrong

break

She said I'm sorry;
The number you have
Dialed is not in service
Please hang up and try
Your call again later
Oh yeah -she said
Please try your call again later
