Out of my bed
Half past three
Never got where I wanted to be
When I got home - the phone was ringing

Picked up the phone
And said "hello"
How was I to see
How was I to know - that it was you
And that you upset me...

When you said don't believe what your friends tell you
Don't beleive it - coz it just 'aint true.
And you know that I love you
(babe, yeah I love you)

Just had to call
Hoping you were in
I love to write - but I know it's a sin
And when you answered
I was forced to regroup

I never fought you
Then you think I am
But you'll never know
You'll never understand
I broke your heart - but you'll soon forget me

And someday you'll be crying on my shoulder
Telling me about "a man who broke your heart"
And though we both get a little older
We'll grow apart
So let's not even start

Don't answer the phone
You're gonna get where you go
You're gonna go back to the heart
Go back to the heart

Do you know where your heart is?
Do you know where your heart is?

    General CommentIn the end of verse 5, I'm quite sure it's "I'm never for you, when you think I am."

    This could be a Stars song, if it weren't for the poppyness. It's about a guy who rejects a girl who just confessed her love to him. He doesn't think he is right for her as they'll "grow apart" and so they "shouldn't even start". He calls to say sorry or comfort her in some way but when she says "hello" he can't bring himself to speak. He pointedly decides not to say anything at all, thinking this is for the best and that she'll soon forget him and someday she'll tell him "about a man who broke" her heart.
