Lyrics
You say live is treating you unfairly
If you only knew how much more you possess than me
I shouldn’t try to burden you or use you to complain
But this is the only thing that saves me from insane
Shit, if you only knew how much I am in love with you
But that is an untold story, I won’t get to that yet

Yes, I’m just trying to get through
On the telephone of “I love you”

Somewhere in an ancient cave a magic, tiny door lit
A witch has cast her on me, yet I cannot afford it
Shit, if you only knew how much I have gone through for you
But that is an untold story, I can’t get to that yet

Just trying to get a line
On the telephone of “make you mine”

Once is hard, but twice ain’t nice
I might understand it once but twice is two too many times
The stronger in my ways, the shorter to my happy days

Just trying to make a call
On the telephone of “I won’t fall”

Analysis: A very catchy bass riff, which would be reused 20 years later on a different project, backs this song. The recording is sharp with good sounding drums and wild guitar effects, making it one of the best of the era.
