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.

    Telling that the person singing is better for him then with the girl he's with right now, but it's going to take time for all three of them. The guy has to take the time to think, the current girlfriend needs to understand, and the girl singing has to wait for him...

    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 is a heartbreaking song sung by a woman who knows that the man she loves isnt about to take any of this advice. It makes me cry everytime. And the video is brilliant

    I think that this is about a person who wants somebody's boyfriend, and she thinks that they are soul mates but maybe is just her imagination
