Lyrics

Lauren with background vocals by Cimorelli:
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where are the times gone?
Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

Christina:
Yeah, I–I know it's hard to remember
The people we used to be
It's even harder to picture
That you're not here next to me
You say it's too late to make it
But is it too late to try?
And in all that time that you wasted

Christina and Lisa:
All of our bridges burnt down

Christina, Amy, and Lauren:
I wasted my nights
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed

Amy with background vocals by Cimorelli:
Still stuck in that time when we called it love
But even the sun sets in paradise

Cimorelli:
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone?
Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

Christina and Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
All them fairy tales are full of it
One more stupid love song, I'll be sick
I'm at a payphone

Katherine with background vocals by Cimorelli:
You turned your back on tomorrow 'cause you forgot yesterday
I gave you my love to borrow, but just gave it away
You can't expect me to be fine
I don't expect you to care
I know I said it before

Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, and Lauren:
But all of our bridges burnt down

Dani with background vocals by Cimorelli:
I wasted my nights
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed
Still stuck in that time when we called it love
But even the sun sets in paradise

Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone?
Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

Christina and Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
And all them fairy tales are full of it
One more stupid love song, I'll be sick
I'm at a payphone

Dani and Lauren:
Man, shut yo' mouth
You'll be out spending all this money while I'm sitting here
Wondering why it was you I gave my heart to
Looking back on us, I'm so glad there'll never be a part two

And all your lies are over
Tellin' me our chances I blew up or whatever you call it
Switch your number in my phone so you never can call it
Read my name on my shirt, you can tell that I'm ballin'

Cimorelli:
Swish, what a shame, coulda got picked

Dani and Lauren:
Had a really good game, but you missed your last shot
So you talk about me like it's all my fault
Like I messed it all up
It's sad to say it's over for

Phantom roll out, valet open doors
And I heard that you're working at a grocery store
Now it's me that you want, but I moved on
So leave a message at the tone

Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone?
Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

Christina and Lisa with background vocals by Cimorelli:
If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
All them fairy tales are full of it
One more stupid love song, I'll be sick

Cimorelli:
I'm at a payphone (Why won't you pick up the phone?)
I'm at a payphone (Why won't you pick up the phone)
I'm at a payphone
I'm at a payphone
I'm at a payphone
So call me, maybe
