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
A 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[(B)] me place this ca[(B]ll [G)]
Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me[(D] [G)]
There's something in my eye, you know it ha[(B]ppens every ti[)]me
I think about the love that I thought would save me[(D] [G)]

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 let's forget[(B)] about this ca[(B]ll [G)]
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to[(D] [G)]
Thank you for your time,
Cause you've been so[(B] much more than kin[G)]d
You can keep the dime

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
