Lyrics For: Operator



    Operator, oh, could you help me place this call?
    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 them Im 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 cant read the number that you just gave me
    Theres something in my eyes, you know it happens every time
    I think about the love that I thought would save me

    But isn't that the way they say it goes?
    Well, 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
    Oh, no, no, no, that's not the way it feels

    Operator, 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

    But isn't that the way they say it goes?
    Well, 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
