Three Seconds

I'm mystified to hear her voice
What a silence she can make 
Three seconds till she grabs the phone
Three seconds till I break 

Three seconds till I cry out dry
My hands begin to shake 
I'm withdrawing from the love she's got 
I'll dream till I awake 

I'll tell her that I love her
And the morning birds will hush
She'll say I need to move on 
That I've dialed her up too much 

Three seconds till she breaks my heart 
For everything I did 
My lies were not enough to kill
That double life I lived 

Time before she answers 
And her tears come through the phone
I got three seconds left 
Before she tells me I'm alone
