San Francisco Payphone

This song is by Catch 22 and appears on the album Alone in a Crowd (2000).

One year ago today I tossed away
A quarter that I should have saved
I faked a farewell fantasy and misbehaved
I never made an effort

My conscience went after all the time a spent
Dollars that I dropped on you
Thought you'd say you missed me too

So here I am, a friend, in the end I meant
To disregarded that birthday card
Nailed upon your wall he sent
I meant to turn my eyes from everything I shouldn't see
An oath I took, you kissed my cheek.
Cried yourself to sleep, but never would you admit to me.

I always laughed when you laughed
Cried when you cried, danced when you danced
I lied, laugh when you laugh
Cry when you cry, dance when you dance
I lied

San Francisco pay-phone. So far from home.
So many friends, and I'm alone.
I faked a farewell fantasy. I lied. You bother me.
My conscience gone. This conversation's dragging on.
There was once upon a time when you... would miss me too.

So here I am, a friend, the end,
I meant to disregard that birthday card,
Nailed upon your wall he sent.
I meant to turn my eyes from everything.
Never made a promise.
An oath I took, I kissed your cheek.
Cried myself to sleep, I won't admit that you see.

I always laughed when you laughed
Cried when you cried
Danced when you danced
I lied
Laugh when you laugh
Cry when you cry
Dance when you dance
I lied
I lied
I lied
I lied
I lied
