Operator, could you help me place this call?

See, the number on the matchbook is old and faded
She's living in L. A. with my best old ex-friend Ray
Guy, she said she knew well and sometimes hated

Isn't that the way they say it goes?
But let' s forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell them I' m fine and to show
I've overcome the blow, I've learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real but that's not the way it feels

Operator, oh, could you help me place this call?
'Cause I can' t read the number that you just gave me
There's something in my eyes, you know it happens every time
I think about the love that I thought would save me

Operator, well, let's forget about this call
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to
Thank you for your time
Oh, you've been so much more than kind
You can keep the dime
