It's three o'clock in the morning When you finally answer your phone Ask me why I keep calling Why I don't leave you alone Where you've been, who've you been with Is all I really wanna know And then you hang up the phone, girl Knowing you're hurtin' me so Sometimes I find it so hard To let you get away So I keep on your trail, girl That's why I'm acting this way I've lived on a fantasy That you still wanted me You said to face reality This is something that should've never, never been I've thought up about tryin (not sure about this!) That you might take me back But false hopes of not dyin' Have kept me on one track Sometimes I find it so hard To let you get away, girl That's why I keep on your trail, baby That's why I'm acting this way Saxophone Solo I hoped you've finally faced it And started moving on Both our times have been wasted So I'm probably better off Still there'll always be these questions That keep on nagging me But baby, why not try it? This is something that might never, never be And I
feel so happy To let you get away, ohhh, yeah I'm gonna get off your trail, girl And stop acting this way And, oh, I guess I'm so happy To let you get away, yeah I'm gonna get off your trail, girl And stop acting this way I'm gonna stay off your trail, girl And stop acting this way Saxophone Outro
