Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels) - Jim Croce

Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels)
Operator, could you help me place this call,
You see the number on the match book is old and faded,
She's living in L.A, with my best old ex-friend, Ray,
A guy she said she knew well, but sometimes hated.

Isn't that the way they say it goes,
But let's forget all that,
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell her I'm fine,
And to show, I overcome the blow,
I learned to take it well,
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels.

Operator, could you help me place this call,
'Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me,
There's something in my eyes,
You know it happens every time,
I think about the love that I thought would save me.

Isn't that the way they say it goes,
But let's forget all that,
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell her I'm fine,
And to show, I overcome the blow,
I learned to take it well,
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels.
No, no, no, no, that's not the way it feels

Operator, let's forget about this call,
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to,
Thank you for your time,
You've been so much more than kind.
You can keep the dime.

Isn't that the way they say it goes,
But let's forget all that,
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell her I'm fine,
And to show, I overcome the blow,
I learned to take it well,
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real, but that's not the way it feels
