A call's not enough
I've been losing touch
I'm a lonely guy and I think too much
I followed my heart and drove to see you

I walked through the coldest night
I sat by your house under a street light
And when you pulled up, he kissed you at the door

Who's this guy and why's he with my girl?
Was I gone a little longer than you thought I'd be?
Did your lips get cold?

I want the world to know that Jamie broke my heart
I guess it goes to show that good things fall apart
And I let her go and I'm on my own
Let her go, leaving me alone
I lived, learned, loved, and lost

I went to the bathroom floor
The tile was cold but I was colder
And your hands on my back were filled with anger

You had a lot of nerve
To say you love this drunk you met on Sunday
But I never asked you twice if you were sure

Who's this guy and why's he with my girl?
Was I gone a little longer than you thought I'd be?
Did your lips get cold?

I want the world to know that Jamie broke my heart
I guess it goes to show that good things fall apart
And I let her go and I'm on my own
Let her go, leaving me alone
I lived, learned, loved, and lost

I lived, learned, loved, and lost
I lived, learned, loved, and lost

    General Commenti saw him ronnie live the other night and this song is really sad because of the lyrics but also because right before he played it [acoustic, by the way, which was amazing], he told us about how he went to CA to record his album and then when he came back his girlfriend of 3 years was with someone else.

    General Commenti saw him a couple weeks ago, and he also played an acoustic concert :) he basically told us the same thing. he went out to record an album in L.A., and he came back to watch his girlfriend at the time, Jamie, perform in the play, Oklahoma. He waited across the street (under a streetlight), and she pulled up with another guy and (she kissed him at the door). if you've been following The Ronnie Day Project on MTVU, the lyric "you had alot of nerve to say you loved this drunk you met on Sunday" in the video shows that Jamie went to a party with her friends, on Sunday, and met this guy, told him he loved her, and the rest is self-explanatory.

    General Commentthis song is really personal.
    Ronnie Day has written such good things about this girl, its a shame to see that she did this to him. It's how people act sometimes though, and its too bad to see this happen.
