Toby Lightman — Operator lyrics

Operator, well could you help me place this call
See the number on the matchbook is old and faded
He's living in la with my ex best friend they say
A girl he said he knew well and sometimes hated
Isn't that the way they say it goes
Let's forget all that and give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell him I'm fine and to show
I've over come the blow
I've learned to take it well I only
Wish my words could only convince myself
That it just wasn't real but that's not the way it feels
Operator well could you help me place this call
Well I can't read the number that you just gave me
There's something in my eyes you know it happens everytime
I think about a love that I thought would save me
Isn't that the way they say it goes
Let's forget all that and give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell him I'm fine and to show
I've over come the blow
I've learned to take it well I only
Wish my words could only convince myself
That it just wasn't realy but that's not the way it feels
No no it's not the way it feels
Operator well let's forget about this call
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to you
Thank you for your time
Oh you've been so much more than kind
And you can keep the dime
Isn't that the way they say it goes
Let's forget all that and give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell him I'm fine and to show
I've over come the blow
I've learned to take it well I only
Wish my words could only convince myself
That it just wasn't real
