Artist's Notes

The context to the song is that a terrible disaster had happened on Earth that cause humans to launch spaceships into space with the hope of finding habitable planets where mankind could live. Those spaceships were piloted by robots. The robot that this song is about was supposed to rendezvous with another robot (a lady robot?) who is the object of his affections but she has not been in touch. 


Lyrics

(Verse 1)  

I?ve been spending my days 

Waiting for you, 

Thinking of all the things 

That we could do. 

(Thinking of all the things we could do) 

 

(Verse 2)  

Won?t you show me your face 

Stop hiding,  

I will open up my heart to you 

I will open my heart 

And show my soul. 

 

(Refrain)  

Here I am 

(Here I am) 

Just a robot in a can, 

Here I am 

(Here I am) 

I?ll be your greatest fan. 

 

(Chorus 1)  

I?m calling you  

So far away 

Give me a call. 

I?m calling you  

Under the cosmic 

Give me a call 

Won?t you give me a call 

I?m so alone 

Oh, won?t you give me a call 

I?m so alone. 

 

(Verse 3)  

Been such a long time 

Thinking of you 

With no company  

Been such a long time 

Thinking of you. 

I?ve been talking to myself 

Can no-one hear me? 

I?ve been talking to myself 

Can no-one hear me? 

 

(Refrain)  

Here I am 

(Here I am) 

Just a robot in a can, 

Here I am 

(Here I am) 

I?ll be your greatest fan. 

 

(Chorus 2)  

I?m calling you  

So far away 

Give me a call. 

I?m calling you 

Under the cosmic 

Give me a call 

I?m calling you  

But there?s no one to 

Give me a call 

I?m calling you 

Won?t you pick up the phone 

Give me a call. 

Won?t you give me a call 

I?m so alone 

Oh, won?t you give me a call 

I?m so alone. 

 

(Bridge) 

Planet Earth is gone 

Hear the dying scream, 

A hundred spaceships ventured forth 

To re-launch the human dream. 

 

(Chorus 3)  

I?m calling you  

So far away in space, 

I?m calling you 

Under the cosmic rays, 

I?m calling you 

But there?s no-one to 

Give me a call. 

I?m calling you 

Won?t you pick up the phone 

Give me a call. 

Won?t you give me a call 

I?m so alone, 

Won?t you give me a call 

I?m so alone, 

Won?t you give me a call 

I?m so alone.
