Song Meaning
Verse 1
Somebody told her that there was a place like heaven
Across the water on a 747
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
Verse 2
And pretty soon she's really got the notion
Of flying out across the big blue ocean
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
Verse 3
Talk is cheap on satellite
But all I get is static information
I'm still here re-dial on automatic
Verse 4
Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America
Verse 5
But I'm just talking to a satellite
Twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
Verse 6
All I had to do was pick up the phone
I'm out in space, trying to talk to someone
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world (in a modern world)
Verse 7
She left a number I could call
But no one's there, no one at all
There must be something going wrong
That number just rings on and on
Verse 8
Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America
Verse 9
Said she'd call when she'd been gone a while
Guess she's missing me across the miles
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
Verse 10
Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
