have you ever gotten one phone call
you didnt know would change your life
but the sound of the ring
makes your heart and mind take flight
then you pick it up
and the voice on the other end
so familiar it doesnt cross your mind
that theyre about to break your heart
by a few words
your life falls apart
To tell you that shes leaving
going far away
she cant stand the pain anymore
but truly wishes she could stay
says she has to leave you but promises you'll be with her soon
as the tears fill your eyes
and your heart falls apart
you clear your throat
before the final depart
"what about me"
you want to ask
but the words wont come
your throat feels like glass
she says shes sorry
as she sobs on the other end
whether or not you forgive her
well that all depends
as she apologizes one last time
ur heart and life falls to pieces
and the tears quickly fall
she tells you she loves you
and soon she will call
you whisper you love her too
and let the phone fall
you sit on the floor
pull ur knees to ur chest
and go through the memories
when your life was best
have you ever gotten the one phone call
that has changed your life forever?
