Thanks for the critique. It addresses more items than any I've had in the ten years or so I've been playing the song. Appreciate your eye for detail and the thought you put into it. I've heard the phone booth mentioned a few times but the ambiguity is intentional. As you noted, I never mentioned a woman. A different listener might simply hear it as someone leaving home for greener pastures and having some doubts along the way. He could just as easily be calling his folks. I'm not sure I achieved it here but sometimes ambiguity can add to a song's appeal, with the listener filling in the blanks. Anyhow, thanks again for the critique. You've given me some things to think about.
