Song Makes Me Cry. D: But It's So Good!

So, I seriously don't ever listen to country music.. I just could never get into it, but this song... is SO amazing. It's beautiful.

Austin by Blake Shelton


She left without leavin' a number.
Said she needed to clear her mind.
He figured she'd gone back to Austin,
'Cause she talked about it all the time.
It was almost a year before she called him up.
Three rings and an answering machine is what she got.

If you're callin' 'bout the car I sold it.
If this is Tuesday night I'm bowling
If you've got somethin' to sell, you're wastin' your time, I'm not
If it's anybody else, wait for the tone,
You know what to do.
And P.S. if this is Austin, I still love you.

The telephone fell to the counter.
She heard but she couldn't believe.
What kind of man would hang on that long?
What kind of love that must be.
She waited three days, and then she tried again.
She didn't know what she'd say,
But she heard three rings and then..

If it's Friday night I'm at the ballgame.
And first thing Saturday, if it don't rain,
I'm headed out to the lake,
And I'll be gone, all weekend long.
But I'll call you back when I get home
On Sunday afternoon.
And P.S. If this is Austin, I still love you.

Well, this time she left her number,
But not another word.
Then she waited by the phone on Sunday evenin',
And this is what he heard:

If you're callin' 'bout my heart,
It's still yours.
I should've listened to it a little more.
Then it wouldn't have taken me so long to know where I belong.
And by the way, boy, this is no machine you're talkin' to.
Can't you tell, this is Austin, and I still love you.

I still love you.

Some songs can really make you think and you feel the heart and soul of the writer.
