Be careful when you take a call for someone else (Not a smart way to begin) And get embroiled in someone else's life (You don't know where that phone's been) And don't strike a conversation with a cigarette Like an old flame Burned up And out of breath A slip of the tongue is all it takes (It seems you need a helping hand) To find yourself in someone else's place (Back in the saddle again) And don't pretend you don't know where it's headed for A connection all the same Exchange small talk about the good old days (It seems they've done better than you) Your stories match despite the different names (I guess that all you heard was true) And don't go along unless you've lost your way A connection all the same Like you're in love's cold sleigh
