Leo Sayer - Orchard Road
Tekst en muziek: Leo Sayer en Alan Tarney

Tell the truth, it’s really such a sad affair
Standing here waiting in the cold night air
But I’ve got to make this call
’Cause my heart is breaking

I hear the bips, drop a coin in the slot
Has it been that long
I thought you’d forgotten me
Well, I know that it’s getting late
But I just couldn’t wait

Will I have the nerve to say
I just wanna come back
You 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 now
Now let me paint the picture

It’s twelve o’clock and the curtains are drawn
They’re counting sheep down in Orchard Road
You’re hanging on the telephone line tonight
And I wish, I could be in Orchard Road

Not much been happening here
I think I’ve got a job
They’re gonna call me next week
And I’ll be working out of town
But it sure beats hanging around

What’s that? Tomorrow at two
You’re kidding me, no
Is it allright with you
I don’t know what to say
It’ll be like a holiday

When you say you’re all alone
Makes me wanna come back
And this house is not a home
I just gotta go back

It’s twelve ten when I put down the phone
The moon is shining down on Orchard Road
And I’m feeling like a schoolboy again and tonight
I’ll see you in my dreams of Orchard Road

Ooh ohohoh
It’s funny, but I thought I’d never go back
I think sometimes I might loose track
But I remember you and the things we do
And I want it back

In Orchard Road you’ve got my heart
I left it in your doorway
In Orchard Road a welcome back
Is waiting there just for me
In Orchard Road the sun will shine
Again I know, I know
In Orchard Road you keep my love
Just waiting there for me

It’s eight o’clock and the dawn’s arrived
In Orchard Road it’s breakfast time
I climb in my car and I turn the key and I’m gone
I am coming home
To Orchard Road

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
