Call your girlfriend
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not her fault
But you just met somebody new

Tell her not to get upset, second-guessing everything you said and done
And then when she gets upset tell her how you never mean to hurt no one
Then you tell her that the only way her heart will mend is when she learns to love again
And it won't make sense right now but you're still her friend
And then you let her down easy

Call your girlfriend
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not her fault
But you just met somebody new

Don't you tell her how I give you something that you never even knew you missed
Don't you even try and explain how it's so different when we kiss
You tell her that the only way her heart will mend is when she learns to love again
And it won't make sense right now but you're still her friend
And then you let her down easy

Call your girlfriend
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not her fault
But you just met somebody new
And now it's gonna be me and you

And you tell her that the only way her heart will mend is when she learns to love again
And it won't make sense right now but you're still her friend
And then you let her down easy

Call
Call your girlfriend
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not her fault

Call your girlfriend
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not her fault
But you just met somebody new

    I feel like I'm the guy in this song, I broke up with my boyfriend of 6 years because I fell in love with someone else. And I told him everything robyn says, because it wasn't his fault, and there was nothing he could have done. I changed, my feelings changed. And i'll always be his friend even though we don't talk anymore lol. But I tried. Oh life. So bittersweet.

    Sung by the "other" woman. Who wants to be the "one and only" woman. She has been strung out long enough in the shadows of the guy's girlfriend and wants her out of the picture. Hence the ultimatum. "call your girlfriend" and end the relationship once and for all so we can start a real life together. The "other" woman is sensitive about the feelings of the man's girlfriend. To the extent that she doesn't want him to make her feel bad or blame her. Only tell her that "you just met somebody new. " will the guy finally "call his girlfriend". End it. And begin a new life with the other woman. Or will he decide to end it with the "other" woman and stick with his girlfriend? We will never know. But the duet on you tube by emily rath and alexa d'agostino is the best version I have heard thus far. Beautiful!

    This song is an excuse for someone to go out and cheat. When you meet someone new, you always get the "tingles" so ofcourse its going to be better than the same old person you've been with for awhile. This song is just giving the guy one more excuse to give up an otherwise good relationship for that "tingly" new sensation. Ultimately, this is the cause of the 50% plus divorce rate in america.

    My meaning to the song is that robyn really helps this man with advice on his girlfriend. I too have been in thesame scenario where a girl tells me to have a talk with my girlfriend because she wanted to be with me too, then again everybody wants to be with me but I guess that's just the story of my life this is why the song is relevant to me because I always have to tell girls that they can't be with me because I myself am perfect and they are just not good enough.
