The Call - text
Today was going to be the day
He already wrote the note
And parked that Chevrolet
At the end of that dead end road
Had his finger on the trigger
Just about to end everything
He was taking one last long breath
When he heard his cell phone ring
And his best friend said "Man, where you been?
We're heading down to the lake this weekend
You better not miss it cause buddy I swear
It wont be the same if you ain't there
And I told that girl that you like so much
That you were coming along and her eyes lit up
I better let you go, man I really hope
I didn't catch you in the middle of anything"
He said "You kinda did, but I don't mind at all
I'm glad you called"
In another turn down the road
In the back seat of a car
Two 18 year-old's
Had let a kiss go too far
He said "How we gonna have this child
When we're both headed off to school"
He convinced her late one night
There's only one thing to do
She was scared to death in that waiting room
When the nurse asked "How far along are you?"
She said "Five weeks" and just about then
Her phone lit up and his call came in
He said "Baby I was wrong about everything
I've already bought you a diamond ring
We're going to start a life. Would you be my wife?
Boy or girl. Pink or blue. Yeah either way."
All she could say as she felt those teardrop fall
"I'm so glad you called"
If someone you know is waiting on your mind
and needs a friend on the other end of the line
Don't hesitate, what you say might save some soul
But who knows? They might be glad you called
So make the call
Yeah, make that call
