Operator Lyrics

Oh could you help me
place this call?
You see the number
on the matchbook
is old and faded

She's livin' 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 let's forget all that
And give me the number
if you can find it
So I can call just
to tell 'em 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

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
I think about the love
That I thought would save me


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

Oh 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
