Answer

I'm just trying to call you to tell you not to call me
But it keeps going straight to the machine
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 my door
Let me tell you I'm leaving so I can cut this cord
Or else my heart will keep on beating forevermore

I'm not looking to blame you, not looking to shame you
Shame on me, it's my second time
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 that 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 will keep on beating forevermore

It takes time
I thought this was right
I thought this was something we both liked
I would've stayed if you would've 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

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