ALMOST CALLING YOU

Tucker Finn © 2010


If you see my common sense
In a movie snack bar line
Or in a cafe by the water
Swirling a glass of dry red wine
Tell it to get back here
‘Cause I just picked up the phone
And I dialed all but your last digit
Yeah I’m in the danger zone

So please send my common sense to me
In a hurried taxi ride
To console my desperate heart
And repair my broken pride
Cause when you left me in the summer
You also left a ghost or two
But now I’m almost done with
Almost calling you

You know I’d almost given up
I almost hired the wrecking crew
Now I’m almost on the mend
You know that’s almost tough to chew
They say you almost always win some
And almost always lose a few
And now I’m almost done with
Almost calling you

I still hold you in the night time
And take you on road trips
And you’re still hogging all the blankets
And eating more than half the chips
But I need to hear your voice now
Because I need to hear it break
So I can rummage through the rubble
For some hope that I can take

There was a psychic down in Vegas
Saw two hearts forever fused
One was scared and fleeting
The other sad and bruised
She told me I was stronger now
And I would soon be breaking through
She said I’m almost done with
Almost calling you

You know I’d almost given up
I almost hired the wrecking crew
But now I’m almost on the mend
You know that’s almost tough to chew
They say you almost always win some
And almost always lose a few
And now I’m almost done with
Almost calling you
Yeah I’m almost done with
Almost calling you
