I Don't Even Try

This song is by John Hiatt and appears on the album Riding With The King (1983).

I thought I had your number - there must be some mistake
I dialled 6 - 3 - 7 - 11 - 88
I got some geezer; said his girlfriend's on the town
I said, "I've got the wrong number," and I slammed the phone down
Thought about it for a minute 'til the anger went away
I figure every dog in town is gonna have his day
Well, I could count the teardrops, or I could wonder why
Well I used to be your lover - now I don't even try

It was champagne parties and sweet love sins
Now it's warm beer at midnight and girlie magazines
I stack the empty cans up like a freshman in school
It's the kind of thing you're into when you ain't nobody's fool

Got my socks in the oven, something's growing in the sink
I can't begin to face the day without a couple of drinks
Ain't had a decent meal since you made me cry
Well I used to be your lover - now I don't even try

Memories, take a look at what you've done to me
It's gettin' so all I do is watch TV
Can't even prove that I'm alive

Well, I thought I had your number - there must be some mistake
I dialled 6-3-7-1-1-8-8
I got some geezer; said his girlfriend's on the town
I said, "I've got the wrong number," and I slammed the phone down

But I know the number's right and you're his girl
Though I wouldn't want to face it for the whole wide world
Don't come back baby, I think I'm gonna die
Well I used to be your lover, now I don't even try
I used to be your lover, now I don't even try
