I'm just trying to call you, to tell you not to call me,
But it keeps going straight to the machine,
Ooh I'm just trying to reach you to tell you I don't need you,
Any less than you don't need me,
But it just rings,
and it rings,
and it rings some more.
And memories of you and me, come crashing through my door,
Let me tell you I'm leaving so I can cut this chord, or else
My heart'll keep on beating forever more.

I'm not looking to blame you, not looking to shame you,
Shame on me, it's my second time, ooh of,
Going too far, confusing the space with freedom but freedom's inside,
And so I sing, and I sing, and I sing some more,
A melody swallows me and lifts me from the floor,
Let me tell you I'm leaving so I can cut this chord,
Or else my heart'll keep on beating forever more.

Oh, it takes time, I thought this was right,
I thought this was something we both liked,
I would have stayed if you would have asked, but now,
The heartbreak songs are back, it's how I get over you.
It's why I write, emotion boiling up inside,
When it's this close I can't divide my heart and my mind.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh [4x]

So I'm just trying to call you to tell you not to call me,
But it keeps going straight to the machine.
