[Chorus:]
She called up
And gave me the news
It made me so sad, sad, sad
There was nothing I could do

She's too far away
And you had to leave
I can never repay you now
For what you gave to me

A whisper that can blow a chasm wide
It took us all
It took us all
Pushed apart the mountains and the tide
It took us all

[Chorus]

I was so lost
In delirious sleep
Wasn't prepared for that position
Yeah, maybe I was naive

The truth is a mortal blow
You know all there is to know
The hurt that you have so close
Is something better now

And she called...

And she called up
And gave me the news
It made me so sad, sad, sad
There was nothing I could do

She's too far away
And you had to leave
I can never repay you now
For what you gave to me
For what you gave to me

She called up
She called up
She called up
And gave me the news
