Someone found a letter you wrote me, on the radio
And they told the world just how you felt
It must have fallen out of a hole in your old brown overcoat
They never said your name but I knew just who they meant

Oh, I was so surprised and shocked, and I wondered too
If by chance you heard it for yourself
I never told a soul just how I've been feeling about you
But they said it really loud, they said it on the air

On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh

Now, now don't it kinda strike you sad when you hear our song
Things are not the same since we broke up last June
The only thing that I wanna hear is that you love me still
And that you think you'll be comin' home real soon

Whoa oh yeah, you kinda made me feel proud when I heard you say
You couldn't find the words to say it yourself
And now in my heart I know I can say what I really feel
'Cause they said it really loud they said it on the air

On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio

Sent them in a letter to tell them that I love you too
If you hear it maybe you'll know
When you hear them read the line about love's return on the radio
You'll think about the two of us, and you'll come home

Oh, if you knew just how I felt why'd you made me wait
Life goes on and on why you play with my heart
Don't hold out any longer 'cause now I know how you really feel
'Cause I heard you really loud, they said it on the air

On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, radio

If you think that love isn't found on the radio
Well, tune right in you made find the love you lost
'Cause now I'm sitting here with the man
I sent away long ago, it sounded really loud they said it really loud

On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh

Now, now don't it kinda strike you sad when you hear our song
Things are not the same since we broke up last June
The only thing that I wanna hear is that you love me still
And that you think you'll be comin' home real soon

Whoa oh yeah, you kinda made me feel proud when I heard you say
You couldn't find the words to say it yourself
And now in my heart I know I can say what I really feel
'Cause they said it really loud they said it on the air

On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
On the radio, whoa oh oh
The only friend I know, whoa oh oh
Is my radio, whoa oh oh
