She says "don't hang up, I want you to hear this song
About love and loss, it's got it all"
She held the phone to the stereo and hummed along
Smiling through her teeth when the chorus came on
It goes
Baby there ain't no easy way to say this
I think I'm moving on
It was fun while it lasted the fun is in the past, kid
I think the flame is gone

So I hung up the phone and I laid there in the dark alone
'Til the sky swapped the moon for the sun
And when the time came to catch my bus I just a wandered outside and waited
Someone in a car on the corner was playing that song

Now every night something cold compels me
To turn the radio on
So I can feel like I felt that time when
We used to play that song


One and one make too good to be true
the love between me and you
Third time is the charm what harm could come
from trying to mend a broken love

But I'm falling for you again
Blue eyes make love begin
And it's never too late-ly
You've felt it too

Well he says she sells sea shells by the sea
twist your words blame it on me
What am I to do
besides giving up missing you
