Pick Up The Phone

by The Stanfields



Written and recorded in total isolation during COVID-19 in support of the Mental Health Association of NS.


If you're feeling like the walls are closing in
and you can't close your eyes or take a deep breath again
If you can't find rhyme or reason it it all
Pick up the phone and give and old friend a call

Everybody - pick up the phone, pick up the phone
I'm on the other end
Tell me, what's on your mind?
Someone is listening

If you're feeling like your worlds out of your hands
and the brightest light of day still makes no difference
If you got no one to save you from a fall
Just pick up the phone and give an old friend a call

I know that times are strange
and the silence hits like an angry freight train
off the rails and forcing you to pretend
that everything's alright
while the darkness sings like a choir in training
A massacre of chords
drifting through the haze
of your mind's holy wars
Reach out to a friend.....
