lyrics

I'm a first time caller
long time listener
I'm a first time lover
long time drinker
this was my last time trying
my last time believing in you
it's true

it was a cold december evening in my pickup
it was the last night with my first love you see
I found a letter that had fallen from your coat
it said "i love you", but it wasn't from me

so i'm calling, mr. D.J., to ask you
Is there a way to take away this pain
Because i'm crying and drink in' and I'm going insane
because the letter was signed my best friend's name

so I'm a first time caller
long time listener
I'm a first time lover
long time drinker
this was my last time trying
my last time believing in you
it's true

so you people listening on the A.M. radio
Take this as a warning
i hope that it makes sense
Keep your lover close
and don't look in her coat
And never introduce her to your friends
