The telephone rang, it was you Calling to say you’d had a change of heart. Were you giving me a test? Trying to find out if, and how much I really cared, Or was it just a ploy, to hurt me When I was so far down that I could fall No lower? If it was a test, I failed, Or perhaps I passed, because I couldn’t take Your change of heart.
