Jim Croce

 Operator oh could you help me place this call   

 You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded         

 She's living in L.A. with my best old ex-friend Ra   

 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 can call just to tell her 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

 Operator 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 eye, you know it happens every ti[]me

 I think about the love that I thought would save me          


 Operator let's forget about this call    

 There's no one there I really wanted to talk to          

 Thank you for your time,

 Cause you've been so much more than kind

 You can keep the dime
