about

Combine Roy Orbsion, the Everly Brothers, some Phil Spector "Wall of Sound" elements, lush orchestration, and a touch of Beatle bridge, and you have a sad tale of love and longing. Alternate title, "Song From The Friendzone." ;-)

lyrics

Somewhere tonight, music is playing,

Somewhere tonight, people laughing out loud,

You sit alone, hoping and praying,

He’ll come along and sweep you away from the crowd.

How many days, have you been waiting?

How many nights, have you walked home alone?

Girl, can’t you see, each time you tell me,

That your future is dismal and dim, how much I want to be him?

When your heart is aching, you can count on me,

Sitting alone, here by the phone,

Call me Mister Plan B,

Call me Mister Plan B.

I know it’s wrong to want you to love me,

I know it’s wrong to need you this way,

I can’t ignore all those tears you’ve been crying,

Or the longing I hear in your voice, I’ll gladly be your second choice.

When your heart is aching, you can count on me,

Sitting alone, here by the phone,

Call me Mister Plan B,

Call me Mister Plan B.

When everything you've waited for, and all your best laid plans,

Go tumbling like a waterfall, through your desperate hands…

I will still be waiting, you can count on me,

Sitting alone, here by the phone,

Call me Mister Plan B,

Put him in the past, let me be your last,

Call me Mister Plan B,

Call me Mister Plan B,

I’ll be Mister Plan B.
