Orchard Road - Lyrics by Sayer Leo

Leo Sayer & Alan Tarney
To tell the truth it's really such a sad affairstanding here waiting in the cold night airbut I've got to make this call'cause my heart is breaking.I hear the bips drop a coin in the slothas it been that long
I thought you'd forgotten mewell I know that it's getting latebut I just couldn't waitwill I have the nerve to say
I just wanna come backyou shouldn't just go away
I just wanna come back
I've been struck by such a bad luck
I need a place a little happiness and some love
I think I can see it nownow let me paint the pictureit's twelve o'clock and the curtains are drawnthey're counting sheep down in orchard roadyou're hanging on the telephone line tonightand I wish I could be in orchard roadnot much been happening here
I think I've got a jobthey're gonna call me next weekand I'll be working out of townbut it sure beats hanging aroundwhat's that? Tomorrow at twoyou're kidding me -- nois it allright with you
I don't know what to sayit'll be like a holidaywhen you say you're all alonemakes me wanna come backand this house is not a home
I just gotta go backit's twelve ten when I put down the phonethe moon's shining down on orchard roadand I'm feeling like a schoolboy again and tonight
I'll see you in my dreams of orchard roadit's funny but I thought I'd never go back
I think sometimes I might loose trackbut I remember you and the things we doand I want it orchard road you've got my heart
I left it in your doorway
In orchard road a welcome backis waiting there just for me
In orchard road the sun will shineagain I know I knowin orchard road you keep my lovejust waiting there for meit's eight o'clock and the dawn's arrivedin orchard road it's breakfast time
I climb in my car and I turn the key and I'm gone
I am coming hometo Orchard Road
I'm coming home
