[Hook: Tyler (Syd)]
I hope you answer (x4)
Because when I call (When I call, baby)
I hope you pick up your phone
(I'd like to talk to you)
I hope you answer

from Tyler The Creator (Ft. Syd tha Kyd) – Answer Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Here, Tyler and Syd sing a very simple, but clever and touching hook together about communication over the phone. Whereas, Tyler has the desire to communicate with his dad early in the song, Tyler relates this hook to a girl during this part of the song. He hopes she answers him because he has to talk to her. We’ve all been there. Sometimes, the phone is the best place to reveal are innermost thoughts and feelings to another person. This could be someone we hate or someone we love.
