She left without leavin' a number
Said she needed to clear her mind
He figured she'd gone back to Austin
'Cause she talked about it all the time
It was almost a year before she called him up
Three rings and an answering machine is what she got

If you're callin' 'bout the car I sold it
If this is Tuesday night I'm bowling
If you've got somethin' to sell, you're wastin' your time, I'm not buyin'
If it's anybody else, wait for the tone,
You know what to do
P.S. if this is Austin, I still love you

The telephone fell to the counter
She heard but she couldn't believe
What kind of man would hang on that long
What kind of love that must be
She waited three days, and then she tried again
She didn't know what she'd say,
But she heard three rings and then

If it's Friday night I'm at the ballgame
And first thing Saturday, if it don't rain
I'm headed out to the lake
And I'll be gone, all weekend long
But I'll call you back when I get home
On Sunday afternoon
P.S. If this is Austin, I still love you

This time she left her number
But not another word
Then she waited by the phone on Sunday evenin'
And this is what he heard

If you're callin' 'bout my heart
It's still yours
I shoulda' listened to it a little more
Then it wouldn't have taken me so long to know where I belong
And by the way, boy, this is no machine you're talkin' to
Can't you tell, that this is Austin, and I still love you

I still love you

    This is one of my favorite songs of all time. Blake Shelton's voice is amazing and you just get chills every time you listen to it. This song it about a man and this girl named Austin, and she left him and went back to live in the city of Austin. A year goes by and she decides to call him up. When she does she gets his voicemail and hears that he still loves her. She calls him back a few days later and gets the voicemail again and leaves her number. On Sunday, when he gets the voicemail, he calls her up and she answers and tells him that she still loves him too.

    I love the line " what kind of man would hang on that long , what kind of love that must be" true love right there, the way that he never let her go, he knew in his heart that one day austin would call. And when he changes the andwering machine message, he still says the ps, which if you think about it, he must have been doing it since she left. Blake sheltons voice is perfect for this song.
    This is probably one of my favorites.
