It's The Next Best Thing To Being There

This song is by Randy Brown and appears on the album Midnight Desire (1980).

(Hello)
Hold your sweet lips,
Closer to the phone.
Whisper you love me,
I feel so alone.
My need for you,
Her girl, is driving me-up the wall!
Hey Hey hey,
Since I can't be there in person,
I had to call,
I had to call!

(It's the next best thing)
Ooh ooh, I said
To being there
Dialing your number ha,
Is the next best thing,
To being there.

Yeah yeah ooh.
It bothers me,
Each time I have to leave you.
I don't wanna go, no no no,
But in order to make a living!
It's a thing, I have to do.
Since I can't be there!
I say to hold you,
And squeeze you tight!
I just had to call you,
On this hell hole!
And late at night!

Oh, Oh oh baby
(It's the next best thing)
I said to being there
It can rain for 40 nights and day
(It's the next best thing)
Wish I was there by your side.
(To being there).

Awww baby!
Randy, I'm so glad you called.
I was so lonely here without you,
(Ooh ooh ooh)
I miss you baby, I miss you, too much.
And I don't know, I was just laying here holding this pillow,
This pillow that you usually lay your head on,
And wishing that it was you.
But I guess, If you're not here, this is the next best thing.

(It's the next best thing)
I can't take the rain by myself.
No baby, no no no, ooh.
(It's the next best thing)
Wish you were here by my side.
(To being there)
I miss you so, my baby.
(It's the next best thing)
(To being there)
It's so dark and lonely and cold baby!
(It's the next best thing)

(To being there)
And I don't have you here; no I don't have you here to hold!
(It's the next best thing)
Dialing your number!
(To being there)
(It's the next best thing)
I miss you so!
(To being there)
(It's the next best thing)
You're so far away baby, ooh baby
(To being there)
And I'm missing you more and more and more each day!
(It's the next best thing)
I had to call you baby.
(To being there)
Aww, I hear rain baby!
(It's the next best thing)
Falling down, falling down!
(To being there)
You're on my mind; you're on my mind, baby!
(It's the next best thing)

Ooh ooh!
(To being there)
(It's the next best thing)
I'm so tired of starring at the 4 walls baby!
I just had to call, I just had to call, I had to call!
Hope you don't mind, I had to call baby!
I can't be there, no no no no,
Aww baby, yeah, yeah, yeah.
