I'd like to make a long distance call
To a number in West L.A.
I've been trying to reach it all day
But no one answers

Tell me why
Was I so unkind
I hope he's still on that line
And I'll make it up to him

If he hasn't changed his number
(If he hasn't changed his number)
If he hasn't changed his mind

I know it's late but please
Let it ring another time
Or two or three

He'd be hurt if
He knew it was me
And I was waiting for him

Tell me why
Was I so unkind
I hope he's still on that line
And I'll make it up to him

If he hasn't changed his number
(If he hasn't changed his number)
If he hasn't changed his mind

Oh, tell me why
Was I so unkind
I hope he's still on that line
And I'll make it up to him

If he hasn't changed his number
(If he hasn't changed his number)
If he hasn't changed his mind

    She took advantage of a nice guy until he finally had enough. Now, she misses him because she can't have him.

    This song is about the sudden realization of something done wrong - and desperately wanting to undo... Wanting a do over... Dated references, but the sentiment is and will forever remain, timeless...
