Speed Dial

Everytime I look at my phone cell phone
You still in my favorites list
I still got you on speed dial
And can’t see me erasing it

Can’t believe I’m facing this
I remember the day I snapped this pic
I’ll never forget the smile on your face – it
Ain’t fair – I’m hating this
I catch myself singing the song
That used to be your ringtone
This can’t be happening
Why did He call you home
I’ll be singing forever
Just wishing that once again you would call my phone
