The Call

Album: Matt Kennon (2009)
  • Today was gonna be the day
    He'd already wrote the note
    And parked that Chevrolet
    At the end of that dead end road
    Had his finger on the trigger, just about to end everything
    He was taking one last long breathe, when he heard his cell phone ring

    And his best friends say man where you been?
    We're headed down to the lake this weekend
    You better not miss it 'cause buddy I swear
    It won't be the same If you ain't there
    And i told that girl that you like so much
    You were coming along and her eyes lit up
    I better let you go man i really hope i didn't catch you in the middle of anything
    He said you kinda did but i don't mind at all
    I'm glad you called

    In another town down the road
    In the backseat of a car
    Two 18 year olds had let a kiss go to far
    He said how are we gonna have this child
    When were both headed off to school?
    He convinced her late one night there's only one thing to do
    She was scared to death in that waiting room
    When the nurse asked how far along are you
    She said 5 weeks and just about then her phone lit up
    And his call came in
    Saying baby i was wrong about everything
    I've already bought you a diamond ring we' re gonna start a life
    Would you be my wife
    Boy or girl, pink or blue, yeah either way
    All she could say as she felt those tear drops falls was
    I'm so glad you called

    If someone you know is waiting on your mind
    And needs a friend on the other end line
    Don't hesitate what you say may seem so small
    But who knows
    They might be glad you called

    So make the call

    Yeah make that call Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
