For Someone Else

 

Words and Music by Kami Lyle

 

 

Telephone is on the floor

Guess that’s where it fell then

Must have dropped it right before

The words I meant to tell him

Like,“I’m so happy,” and, “congratulations to you, friend”

That’s where the conversation ended

 

Marry her and say, “I do”

Fool if she believes you

You’ll be lonesome, I will too

But I will not deceive you

And when they ask for who

This song is I will say

I guess it must have been for someone else

I guess it must have been for someone else

 

 

 

Summer stars are out tonight

I can hear them singing

Just as I turn out the light

My telephone is ringing

But I am not alone so I pretend to say Hello

And with the other hand I disconnect you slowly

 

So find a star and wish for me

I’m the one you left here

Still to be enchanted by the company of men dear

And when they ask for who

That call was I will say

I guess it must have been for someone else

 

 

Now the clowns of love are through

Taking off their make up

Finally she turns to you

And says it’s time to break up

‘cause you have been so distant, like a man out on the sea

She does not know the land you’re searching for is me

 

So sail away and find my shore

While the sky is starry

Take your heart and nothing more

And tell you are sorry

And when she asks for who

Your love is you can say

I guess it must have been for someone else

I guess it must have been for someone else
