Operator
Operator, well could you help me place this call

See the number on the matchbook is old an faded

She's living in L.A

With my best old ex friend Ray

Guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated



(CHORUS)

But 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

So I can call just to tell them 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, well could you help me place this call

Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me

There's something in my eyes

You know it happens every time

I think about the love that I thought would save me



(REPEAT CHORUS)

No, no, no, no, that's not the way it feels



Operator, let's forget about this call

There's no one there I really wanted to talk to

Thank you for your time

Oh you've been so much more than kind

You can keep the dime



(REPEAT CHORUS)
