Orleans – On Hold Lyrics

Your voice comes through the wire
Then it’s not there at all
I’m left holding this piece of plastic
Wondering why did you call
Is it just a bad connection?
Should I hang up and try again?
Is it just my imagination
Or is another call coming in?

You’ve got to hold me, I cry
Will you hold? You reply
I want you to hold me
But you just put my love on hold

I can’t get a word in edgewise
Between all the things that you do
I can hear you reach for the button
When the talk turns away from you
It’s been such a long, long distance
Such a long, long time
But how can I make contact
When there’s no one on the line?

You’ve got to hold me, I cry
Will you hold? You reply
I want you to hold me
But you just put my love on hold

Hold me, I cry
Will you hold? You reply
I want you to hold me
But you just put my love on

Hold me, I cry
Will you hold? You reply
I want you to hold me
But you just put my love on hold
Put my love on hold

I’m cryin’, hold me, I cry
Will you hold? You reply
I don’t wanna cry
Hold me, I cry
Don’t you put my love on hold
Put, put my love, put my love on hold, baby

Will you hold me? I cry
I could wait forever
Will you hold? You reply
Hold me, I cry
Don’t you put my love on hold
