When she picked up the telephone,
His voice came on the line.
She said: “This can’t be happening,”
An’ tears fell from her eyes.
She said: “What am I supposed to do?
“I can’t handle losin’ you.”
He said: “I just had to call to say goodbye,
“One last time.”
He said: “There are some things in this life,
“That are out of our control.
“Like who we fall in love with,
And when it’s time to go.”
An’ she said: “What about the plans we had?”
He said: “This connection’s gettin’ bad.”
“Now c’mon baby, let me hear you smile,
One last time.”
She started to apologize,
For all the things that she’d done wrong.
She said: “I would have loved you better.
If only I’d known.”
He said: “You were the perfect wife:
Promise me you’ll go on with your life.”
She said: “The boys won’t understand.”
He said: “Tell ’em Daddy loves ’em and, be strong, whoa.”
He said: “Honey, I’ve gotta go.”
She said: “Don’t you dare hang up.
There’s so many things I need to say.
I love you so much.”
It was almost like she felt him leave.
She cried out: “Can you still hear me?”
She fell down on the kitchen floor,
When the signal died,
As the pilot tried to pull out of the dive.
