When I Got Home

from Pamela Polland by Pamela Polland



Pamela wrote this song for Richard Baskin. Although the flirtation was short lived, their friendship extended for many years, and Richard invited Pamela to appear with him when he was the musical guest artist on Saturday Night Live.


When I Got Home
(Pamela Polland)

I was hoping when I got home there'd be a note that said you'd called
There'd even be a number where I could reach you later on
And of course, I would call you then, no matter how late I got in
And you would be still sleeping, but you'd be so glad to hear from me

Because you love me, you love me, you really love me
Because you love me, because you love me........

But I guess that I stayed out to long, or maybe no one else was home
To take the message down that you'd called
And besides that, we've only met, and I hardly know ya yet
Still, I get the feeling that you meant all those nice things you said.

And that you love me, (because you love me), yes I believe it,
Yes, I believe that you love me........

Oh, I really believe it, I know that you love me
Won't you please come and see me, I know that you need me
You love me........
I believe that you love me, yes, I believe it, I really believe that you love me...
