Guess I should accept the call
But I really don't know what to say
The operator won't let me talk at all
And she says you want me to pay
Oh well it ain't nothin' new
It fits right with my picture of you
But tonight you're gonna find out
What these tears are all about

CHORUS:
'Cause This Old Flame went out
You never thought you'd be the one
In the darkness now
I think you know what I'm talkin' about
This Old Flame went out

You went to get cigarettes
That was last July, you didn't get home yet
And now you expect me to hear you out
You call me collect, there ain't no doubt

REPEAT CHORUS

What do you mean, how can I do this to you?
Let's not forget who walked out on who

REPEAT CHORUS
