Clutching the phone till my hands were sore
I never understood pain before, Christopher
You cannot know what it does to me
Hearing you speak with this frequency

I never knew what one voice could do
I was in heaven the moment I heard you
My friends go out drinking and having fun -
I stay in bed with my headphones on

Shot down with arrows from waves above
Christopher Lydon renounced my love

It took so long to get through to you
I never understood sorrow, and now I do
I finally got past your moniter,
You broke my heart in two, Chrisopher

Christopher, I was your listener, Christopher,
I've never felt love like this before, Christopher,
Christopher, now and forevermore, Chrisopher
I'll never stop saying Christopher, Christopher

Finally I knew what I had to do
I had to make the connection with you
I don't care if your old and incontinent
I will be yours til the bitter end...

So during a show about Joan of Arc
I got through and said:
"Christopher Lydon, you've stolen my heart"
When I asked if you felt the same way for me
You cut me off like a guillotine

Drawn like a bull to a matador-
I just see visions of Chrisopher
Shot down by arrows from waves above
Christopher Lydon renounced my love

Christopher, I was your prisoner, Christopher,
I hope you're happy now, Chistopher
Thank you for everything, but I'm not listening anymore nor do I plan to contribute to npr
Christopher, beautiful, Christopher,
I'm the girl you've been waiting for

    In a nutshell; it's about this girl inlove with the awesome christopher lydon, the radio-talk show host who is alos a journalist. She wouldn't catch a grenade for him, but she loves him all the same. She doesn't care that he's decades older than her or if he's incompetent and old, she just wants to be with him till the very end. But he doesn't know her and doesn't have the same feelings. He breaks her heart in doing so and she claims she'll stop listening so she can get over the love that was never promised to her. In the end, she still loves him. He admires her work and they both move on with their lives.
