Operator oh could you help me place this call

You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded

She's living in L.A. with my best old ex-friend Ray

guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

Isn't that the way they say it goes

But lets forget all that

And give me the number if you can find it

So 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 oh 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

think about the love that I thought would save me


Operator let's forget about this call

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
