Elvis Costello - "An Open Letter" lyrics

Everybody's asking
When do you get home
I don't know the answer
All I really know

Is that you're living in London
With an ex-boyfriend
On some kind of break from
Pre-Chorus

So you go right ahead and clear your mind
This relationship
I know you're having The greatest time
Chorus
So promise you'll remember to return
Hey, I don't want you thinking I'm concerned

V2
I can never answer
Everybody's asking
The phones off the hook
When did you last call

is a substitute
So daytime television
For all the conversations

I think we both knew
Might have taken place if you had stayed
Pre-Chorus
With titles like please Ricki make her stay

Rpt Chorus
