Original Music by Dave Anthony
When You're Not There (original jazz vocal)
Lyrics
I want to phone you and
I want to talk a little while and
I want to talk to
The one who
Makes me want to talk and
I want to phone you
When you're not there

When you're not there
I don't know what to do
I don't like anything
I can't do anything
When you're not there
Drag my feet on the ground
And I don't like the sound of my
Own lonely voice

(guitar solo)

When you're not there
I just don't want to try
I go out of my mind
And I waste all my time
When you're not there
I just can't read a book
And I don't like the look of my
Own lonely face

I want to phone you and
I want to talk a little while and
I want to phone you
When you're not there

I want to talk to you baby

I want to talk to
The one who
Makes me want to talk and
I want to phone you
When you're not there

I want to talk to you baby

ooo oooo ooo
