Long Distance Love

Ah, hello...Give me missing persons, they said
What is it that you need?
I said oh, I need her so...She said you've
Got to stop your pleading

'Cause no matter what you do,
Even pray to heaven above, ooh
All you'll ever get from her is
Long distance love

I read the papers
And I got the blues
I'm so sad to hear the news
Help wanted, but not enough
You know these times are gettin' rough

'Cause no matter what I do
Even pray to heaven above
All I ever get from her is long distance love
Woo-oh-ah-ha

You know her toes were so pretty
And her life so sweet
I wonder do she know
Do she she know she hurt me so

'Cause no matter what I do
I even pray to heaven above
All I seem to get from her is
Long distance love
Long distance love
