Leo Sayer's, "When I Need You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The telephone can't take the place of your smile.
Why They're Nonsensical:
These lyrics have never made any sense to me whatsoever. Just what does Leo Sayer mean when he says "The telephone can't take the place of your smile"? Obviously he's not as happy talking over the phone to his lover as he is having her by his side and seeing her smile in person.

Leo Sayer's, "When I Need You"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
When I need you... I just close my eyes and I'm with you
Why They're Nonsensical:
Closing your eyes actually causes you to be with someone?! I don't THINK so! Is the singer supposed to be a magician or something?
