Finally I lifted the phone to my ear
And I listened to it ring
         I’d have called her sooner
         But I’d left it so late already
         She’d know how late I was
         How thoughtless and selfish
         To have kept her waiting
         So I waited till I could lie
         And call it sudden
         And I called
It sudden
And so she thought better of me
She thought better
Of me
With her pardoning
Crackling voice on the line
I think she thought
Better of me
