Reverse

I'm not sure why 
She said 
The phone went dead and suddenly 
So suddenly the connection was lost - 

I went over the story 
About the boy 

Doesn't matter does it ? 
How many times we cry ? 

I watch the airplanes fall from the sky 
I hold his picture every night 
But darling 
No ones left holding 
On the phone 

Gambling your last penny 
Drinking your last shot at the bar 
Betting your last smile 
Of this memory 

I'm telling you don't look back 
The cost is left in the wonder 
Your value a broken mirror 

Paid in full with his debts 


So let me tell you about a boy 
The phone went dead suddenly 
So suddenly
