Austin Lyrics

She left without leaving a number
Said she needed to clear her mind
He figured she'd gone back to Austin
'Cause she talked about it all the time
It was almost a year
Before she called him up,
Three rings and an answering machine
Is what she got

If your calling 'bout the car, I sold it,
If this is Tuesday night, I'm bowling
If you got something to sell
Your wasting your time
I'm not buying
If it's anybody else
Wait for the tone
You know what to do
And P.S. if this is Austin
I still love you.

The telephone fell to the counter
She heard but she couldn't believe
What kinda man would hang on that long
What kinda love that must be
She waited three days
And then she tried again
She didn't know what she'd say
But she heard three rings and then

If it's Friday night,
I'm at the ball game
And first thing Saturday, if it don't rain
I'm headed out to the lake
And I'll be gone all weekend long
But I'll call you back
When I get home
On Sunday afternoon,
And P.S. if this is Austin
I still love you

This time she left her number
But not another word
Then she waited by the phone
On Sunday evening
And this is what he heard

If you're calling 'bout my heart
It's still yours
I shoulda listened to it a little more
Then it wouldn't have
Taken me so long
To know where I belong
And by the way boy
This is no machine you're talking to
Can't you tell this is Austin
And I still love you
...I still love you

I love this song, first i can't explain what the song all about, then I've listened 3 times yayy, make me emotional.. Maybe Austin need time to set her self what she want with her life, that's why she needs time to think.

Fantastic song. This is Austin! Same than from the space when they called Houston. You must be in the feeling of the song. Houston....we have a problem! Hello this is Austin, I am thinking about you! Same kind of call. You can use any name, she call from Austin to say I love you, after a year. The best love song.

You say you want something like this well trust me if you had it you would take it for granted. I know because she didnt consider love like that special, im still holding on after a year and 3 months.
