Lyrics


To The Doctor
(Polly Edwards)

I'm always torn on whether to give the real story behind this one. If you're going to understand the reference, you've probably already picked it up -- but I'll give you a big hint: the alternate title for this one is "Rose". And if you don't get it, don't worry. Suffice it to say, it's about every time it's ever been worth it to fall in love and break your heart. Which is to say, every time.

Lonely phone booth on the corner
Where we met long ago
Broken windows, faded sign
Do you miss me (do I miss you)
I don't know

Lonely phone booth on the corner
Maybe I'll make a call
Sometimes a day goes by
When I don't think of you and I
And I'm content with my new life and that's all
(I don't want content to be all)

Won't you send me to the Doctor
'Cause I'm feeling too well
And I'm ending my beginning
Dead on the shelf, and no one can tell (can you tell?)
That I'm back here on my knees
Begging, oh please, take me home
I can't break my heart on my own

Lonely lady on the corner
When you met her, did she hear
Our old fashioned story
Of starlight and glory
And the heroes that saved her year after year
(How we saved her year after year after year)

Chorus

Rip out inside of me
'Cause this healing's hiding me
How can not fighting be so hard
It's a whisper in time
It's one letter in rhyme
It's the lie of I'm fine torn apart

Won't you send me to the doctor
'Cause I skinned my soul when I fell
And I'm ending my beginning
And I'm healing through hell

Loving means breaking your heart
Living means you'll be torn apart
Loving means breaking your heart
Living means you want it to be torn apart

And this loving means living apart
And this living is breaking my heart
So come home
I don't want to break it all on my own

Lonely phone booth on the corner
Maybe I'll make a call
