My friends, your friends Everybody's whispering The same old telephone games.
High school is over We don't grow up No we just get older Such a shame.
And we can't shake it. Is there any truth behind what They are saying, babe?
I'm here, you're there Talk is cheap, it's everywhere. Denial eases the pain.
// CHORUS But when the summer turns to fall I won't be waiting for your call. I'm only holding on, holding on For so long. You've got me holding on... On the line. //
It's the talk of the town Has my heart turned upside down. The same old telephone games.
Send a message through the wire Set the rumor mill on fire. Watch it burn up in flames.
And I believe, when I see You standing in front of me Eye-to-eye, face-to-face.
Are you lovin' someone new? Has a change of heart changed you? Maybe I'm going insane.
..on the line..on the line..on the line.
On the line.
