lyrics

Operator, could you help me place this call
See the number on the matchbook is old and faded
She’s livin’ in LA
With my best old ex-friend Ray
A guy she said she knew well, and sometimes hated

Isn’t that the way they say it goes
But let’s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
I’ve overcome the blow
I’ve learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn’t real
But that’s not the way it feels

Operator, could help me place this call
Well I can read the number that you just gave me
There’s something in my eye’s
You know it happens every time
I think about the love that I thought would save me

Isn’t that the way they say it goes
But let’s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
I’ve overcome the blow
I’ve learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn’t real
But that’s not the way it feels

That’s not the way it feels

Operator, let’s forget about this call
There’s no one there that I really wanted to talk to
Thank you for your time
You’ve been so much more than kind
You can keep the dime

Isn’t that the way they say it goes
Let’s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
I can call just to tell her I’m fine and to show
I’ve overcome the blow
I’ve learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn’t real
But that’s not the way it feels

That’s not the way it feels
That’s not the way it feels
