Lyrics

Your phone rang as I was singing you my brand new tune, and when you answered it you know I fell out of love with you.
You don't look so pretty to me anymore. Your eyes don't blind me like before.
Well girl you know I'm sensitive, and I'm so tired of feeling like a fool.

A good friend of mine always says to me, she's happy when I'm heart broke and alone, says I write better songs in misery.
Well I don't wanna be a martyr for a song. But I don't mind if you all wanna sing along.
Man you know I'd lay it all on the line, If I wasn't so afraid of getting it wrong.

You said you were leaving me then you asked me for a kiss, and I still can't believe that I caved in to your request.
I can't believe you cashed your chips in on me. Cause all I've known you do is let it ride.
Guess you were tired of me trying to get close to you, like I was so tired of you pushing me to the side.

I shed a tear this morning as I crawled out of my bed. Last nights alcohol was still pounding in my head.
And I thought of you for just one second. And I blurred the line of just who is to blame.
Well girl if you're waiting on me to say the perfect things, don't waste your time or your shackles or your chains.

Your phone rang as I was singing you my brand new tune, and when you answered it you know I fell out of love with you.
