IT WASN'T HIM

1.
The clock on the wall told me where he was, it wasn't all that late.
I got his number from information, but dialing was my first mistake.
It'd been a while, and I missed his smile, I missed just having him around.
But when that phone was answered my heart shattered at the sound.

Chorus:
It wasn't him it was a her, I couldn't believe what I heard.
She turned his lines all into lies, and she had only said one word.
How could it be for all that we had shared he didn't mention one small thing.
He never broke my heart until the telephone quit ringing.

2.
I knew that I should answer her, but I just hung up quick instead.
While a thousand explanations, bounced around inside my head.
The operator she gave me that same number the second time.
So I dialed again, I was quite convinced, that the mistake must have been mine.
But
Chorus:
It wasn't him it was a her, I couldn't believe what I heard.
She turned his lines all into lies, and she had only said one word.
How could it be for all that we had shared he didn't mention one small thing.
He never broke my heart until the telephone quit ringing.
REFRAIN:
He told me all about his history, he told the story of his life.
He talked about his hopes, he talked about his dreams,
He just forgot about his wife….

3.
Well that was a long time ago, now I'm a little less naïve.
I am quicker to be leary, and I am slower to believe.
But a lesson learned in your memory burns,
And I will not soon forget.
And when that man crosses my mind, that's what I remember yet.

Chorus:
It wasn't him it was a her, I couldn't believe what I heard.
She turned his lines all into lies, and she had only said one word.
How could it be for all that we had shared he didn't mention one small thing.
He never broke my heart until the telephone quit ringing.
