She left without leaving a number, said she needed to clear hermind,
he figured she gone back to Austin she talked about it all thetime.
It was almost a year before she called him up,
3 rings and an answering machine is what she got...
If your calling 'bout the car I sold it,
If this is tuesday night I'm bowling,
If you got something to sell
your wasting your time, I'm not buying
If its anybody else wait for the tone you know what to do
and P.S if this is Austin, I still love you.
The telephone fell to the counter, she heard but she couldn'tbelieve
what kind of man would hang on that long, what kind of love thatmust be,
she waited 3 days and then she tried again,
she didn't know what she'd say, but she heard 3 rings andthen...
If its friday night I'm at the ball game,
and first thing saturday, if it don't rain
I'm headed down to the lake and I'll be gone all weekend long,
but I'll call you back when I get home on sunday afternoon,
and P.S if this is Austin, I still love you
This time she left her number, but not another word,
and she waited by the phone on sunday evening,
and this is what he heard...
If your calling 'bout my heart
its still yours, I should've listened to it a little more,
then it wouldn't have taken me so long to know where I belong
and by the way boy, this is no machine your talking to,
can't you tell this is Austin, and I still love you.............Istill love you.
