At the Sound of the Tone Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I called her up to say I'm sorry, I just can't have lunch today
Cause the boss just called and he's flying in from L.A
And as the phone rang, I remembered the time
How simple things used to be
Then her voice came on the line, not her, but the answer machine

She said, "I'm sorry, I can't take your call, cause I'm packing up to away
And John, if that's you, you'll just cancel the lunch anyway
Ah you used to find the time, but now you don't even try
So at the sound of the tone you're on your own goodbye

I ran down to the street and I caught a cab, God I had to get back home
But the house was empty, except for the code-a-phone
And as the tears came, I remembered the time, how happy we used to be
And I'll never forget the last words she ever said to me

She said, "I'm sorry, I can't take your call, cause I'm packing up to away
And John, if that's you, you'll just cancel the lunch anyway
Ah you used to find the time, but now you don't even try
So at the sound of the tone you're on your own goodbye
She said you used to find the time, but now you don't even try
So at the sound of the tone, you're on your own goodbye
