How Come You Don't Call Me Lyrics

by Alicia Keys

I keep your picture beside my bed
And I still remember everything you said
I, I always thought our love was so right
I guess I was wrong
Always thought you'll be by my side, papa
Now you're gone

All I wanna know, baby
If what we had was good
How come you don't call me
Anymore?

Still light the fire on a rainy night
I still like it better when you holdin' me tight
Everybody said
Everybody said that we should never part
Tell me baby, baby, baby, why
Why you wanna go and break my heart?

All I wanna know, baby
If what we had was good
How come you don't call me
Anymore?

Sometimes it feels like I'm gonna die
If you don't call me, papa
Ooh, you got to try
Won't get down on my knees
Won't beg you, "Please, please"

Won't you call me sometime, papa?
Why don't you call me back no more?
Why on earth can't you just pick up the phone?
You know I don't like to be alone

How come you don't call me?
How come you don't call me?
How come you don't call me?
