Fate Line

Confident experienced, yet sittin’ home alone
Friday Blues, what’s ta lose,
try the telephone.

Dial 1, just for fun, the classified menu
A simple fee, no loves for free,
there’s someone just for you.

Date-line Fate-line, faceless fantasy
just your number and your name,
your dreams of ecstasy

Date-line Fate-line, 50 words or less.
Who could tell, you’ve hid so well,
the voice of lonliness?

Confident, experienced,
still reachin’ for the phone.
Lay your heart out on the line
In the Twilight Zone.
