I bought a record today
It’s by this indie band called Neutral Milk Hotel
I think that you would like it a lot
They’re quite experimental, but the tunes are catchy as well

Being away from you is hard, but I don’t mind
‘Cause I know we’ve got plenty of time
But you’ve been on my mind tonight
And I just called to say I love you

We had a fight today
I ignored fourteen of your calls while I was out with my friends
I said I’d make it up to you
I know you’re pissed off right now but we’re always okay in the end

And all of this shit won’t matter when I hold you in my arms
And you know that you’re where you’re supposed to be
But I really miss your stupid face and I just called to say I love you

I got a phone call today
I didn’t recognise the voice on the other line
She said to sit down for a while
Then confirmed the thought that had crept into my mind

As hard as it is to understand I know that you are gone
I can’t keep fooling myself for long
But I can still hear your voice on the answerphone
So I’ll just call and say I love you
As if you didn’t already know
