Metric“Collect Call” [from Fantasies (2009)]

Metric’s “Collect Call” doesn’t seem remarkable at first, but later hits you like an old love letter does when all of the memories suddenly come rushing back. The lines “If somebody’s got soul / You gotta make the move / Make the move” are the most concise and honest advice you could ever receive.

[lyrics by Metric]

If the fire’s out baby
How you gonna keep me warm
Supposing you let me
With the door wide open no one can leave

I know it’s a lie I want it to be true
The rest of the ride is riding on you
Over goodbyes we’ll buy some place for
Wishing you could

Keep me closer
I’m a lazy dancer
When you move I move with you

If somebody’s got soul
If somebody’s got soul
If somebody’s got soul
You gotta make the move
Make the move

I know it’s a lie I want it to be true
The rest of the ride is riding on you
Over goodbyes we’ll buy some place for
Wishing you could

Keep me closer
I’m a lazy dancer
When you move I move with you
