He Called My Phone Today

from by Jeanette Berry and the Soul Nerds



He called my phone today
I was so happy to hear his voice
Not knowing what to say
I just listened.

It seemed like yesterday
he'd call me over and over again
just to say he loved me so
he wouldn't let me off the phone.

But today is different
I'm not in love
or like I used to be
I travel with these memories
inside of me

I miss the feeling
of loving someone
as much as I loved you
as much as I loved you

I wouldn't take it back
the days and nights with you
it taught me how to love
and how to listen
to not only the words
but the things you'll never say
cause silence bears the truth
not the exception

But I'll always smile when I hear your name
or when I hear our song
it takes me back
to when our love was strong
You probably think I'm crazy
or maybe just a fool
but I'll take that name
if it meant loving you

Damn I miss loving you
or anyone at all the way that I loved you
I think I'm ready
to let you leave my heart
and to find somebody new that deserves all the love
that wasn't returned

It may sound selfish
but I know I can treat you like a king
if it only meant
to do just one thing.
To love you without boundaries
and with no judgement at all
I'm ready
I'm ready to take that fall
I'm ready
Oh I'm ready

He called my phone today
it turned me upside down
but in a special way
I know I'm ready.
