lyrics

RICKY...
We hear you're leaving, that's okay
I thought our little wild time had just begun
I guess you kinda scared yourself, you've turned and run
But if you have a change of heart...

Ricky don't lose that number
You don't wanna call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Ricky don't lose that number
It's the only one you'll want
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

I've got a friend in town, he's heard your name
We could go out driving down Slowhand Road
Or we could stay inside and play games, I dunno..
And you could have a change of heart

Ricky don't lose that number
You don't wanna call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Ricky don't lose that number
It's the only one you'll want
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

I can tell you all I know
The where to go, the what to do
You can try to run but you can't hide
From what's inside of you...

You tell yourself you're not my kind
But you don't even know your mind
And you could have a change of heart...

CHO: Ricky don't lose that number
You don't wanna call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Ricky don't lose that number
It's the only one you'll want
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home
