Today was gonna be the day
He'd already wrote the note
He parked that Chevrolet
At the end of that dead end road

Had his finger on the trigger
Just about to end everything
He was taking one last long breath
When he heard his cell phone ring

His best friend said, "man where you been?"
We're headin down to the lake this weekend
You better not miss it
Cause buddy I swear
It won't be the same
If you ain't there
I told that girl that you like so much
You were coming along and her eyes lit up
I better let you go
Man I really hope
I didn't catch you in the middle of anything
He said you kinda did
But I don't mind at all
I'm glad you called

Then another tale down the road
In the back seat of the car
Two 18 year olds
Had let a kiss go to far

He said how we gonna have this child
We are both headed off to school
He convinced her late one night
There's only one thing to do

She was scared to death in that waiting room
When the nurse asked how far along are you
She said 5 weeks and just about then
Her phone lite up and his call came in
He said baby I was wrong about everything
I've already bought you a diamond ring
We're gonna start a life, would you be my wife?
Boy or girl, pink or blue, yeah either way
All she could say, as she felt those tear drops fall
I'm so glad you called

If someone you know, is waiting on your mind
That needs a friend on the other end of the line
Don't hesitate, what you say may seem so small
But who knows, they might be, glad you called

So make the call

    the meaning of this song to me is that God does truly try to help us out and that somethings can be stopped in time and others can't. There is a reason for everything and sometimes our soul purpose on earth is to live tofind out what they are. Live life for what it is and if you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain.

    I think it means that everybody needs somebody to make that call sometimes. The man was about to take his own life and his best friend called and stopped him without the friend knowing what he was really doing. That was an instance when he needed that friend just to call and change his whole day. Then the 18 year old that had the baby. Her boyfriend called and stopped evrything just in time. I think that God has a way of getting to people and stopping things before they happen.
