The Actor for Love

I'd like to hear the telephone
a ring of one or two.
A call from not just anyone
a simple call from you.

You said you'd call, I know you'll call
but how can I be sure,
that if you call and when we talk,
I won't want more and more.

More and more of what? You'll say.
Well, more and more of you.
You'll say I can't be serious.
So serious I'm blue.

If you don't feel that it would work
I understand so clear,
but I'll still care about you, love
as long as you are near.

I can stop emotions short
and act like I don't care,
but if I do, it's just for you
to keep you sweet and fair.

I can play the villian
and drop you like a log
and take the heat from all your friends
and be the dirty dog.

If this is what you want from me
I'll do it and be snappy,
`cause all I want in life is just
to make sure you are happy.
