I don't wanna have to shout while the day is long
Repeating all the things that I've said and done
Only words you know so well

And if I could explain what you want from me

Something that you've failed to see

Oh, my love for you
Well, it's still as new
And it's burning blue

I shoulda known better
Why can't I forget her
She's an operator

I don't wanna have to shout from a mountain top
So try to realize all the things we've got
How come you don't understand?

There'll never be a future we can trust
Tomorrow's all we need in front of us
One day at a time's enough

And my love for you
Well, it's still as new
And it's burning blue

I shoulda known better
Why can't I forget her
She's an operator

And my love for you
It still feels as new
And it's burning blue

All across the nation
Open invitation
No exaggeration

I shoulda known better
Why can't I forget her
She's an operator

And my love for you
It's still burning blue
