Oh what a shame to see the way he treated her
She nearly lost her mind tryin’ to keep her faith
She got tired of fearin’ him, and oh so tired of givin’ in
And everyday she stayed she knew was a mistake

So she packed light for a one-way ride on a Greyhound
Looked around the house and sighed one last time
There was nothin’ much left to say, she knew he wouldn’t listen anyway
So she left a message by the phone with just one line

She broke the spell that she’d been under
Found her wings and she was gonna fly
The note said I’ve got your number and underlined here’s mine
You can reach me at 1-800-Goodbye

She had no where to go, but off that dead-end road
She was lookin’ for a place where she could heal
The scars on her heart, cause he’d gone too far
She prayed he’d change but she knew he never will

He was primed to fight that night when he hit the doorway
Smelled of motel love and whiskey on his breath
Yelled her name and slammed the door, but he can’t hurt her anymore
She was miles away when he read the note she’d left

She broke the spell that she’d been under
Found her wings and she was gonna fly
The note said I’ve got your number and underlined here’s mine
You can reach me at 1-800-Goodbye

The note said I’ve got your number and underlined here’s mine
You can reach me at 1-800-Goodbye
