John Schneider At The Sound Of The Tone lyrics

 

I called her up to say I'm sorry

I just can't have lunch today

Cause the boss just called

and he's flying in from L.A.

And as the phone rang

I remembered the time

How simple things used to be

Then her voice came on the line 

not her, but the answer machine

 

She said I'm sorry, I can't take your call

cause I'm packing up to away

And John, if that's you

you're just cancel the lunch anyway

Oh you used to find the time

but now you don't even try

So at the sound of the tone 

you're on your own...goodbye

 

I ran down to the street and I caught a cab

God I had to get back home

But the house was empty

except for the code-a-phone

And as the tears came I remembered the time

how happy we used to be

And I'll never forget the 

last words she ever said to me

 

She said I'm sorry, I can't take your call

cause I'm packing up to away

And John, if that's you

you're just cancel the lunch anyway

Oh you used to find the time

but now you don't even try

So at the sound of the tone 

you're on your own...goodbye

 

She said you used to find the time

but now you don't even try

So at the sound of the tone

you're on your own....goodbye
