Diana Krall - Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels) Lyrics




Operator, could you help me place this call
You see the number on the match box is old and faded
He's living in l. a
With my best old ex friend ray
A girl he said he knew well but sometimes hated

Isn't that the way they say it goes
But lets forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell him I'm fine
And to show, I overcome the blow
I learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real
But that's not the way it feels

Operator, could you help me place this call
'cause I can't read the number that you just gave me
There's something in my eye
You know it happens everytime
I think about the love that I thought would save me

But isn't that the way they say it goes
But lets forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell him I'm fine
And to show, I overcome the blow
I learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real
But that's not the way it feels

Operator, lets forget about this call
There's no one there I really wanted to talk to
Thank you for your time
You've been so much more then kind

You can keep the dime

But isn't that the way they say it goes
But lets forget all that
And give me the number if you can find it
So I can call just to tell him I'm fine
And to show, I overcome the blow
I learned to take it well
I only wish my words could just convince myself
That it just wasn't real
But that's not the way it feels

Oh no no no
That's not the way it feels

    That it just wasnt real that's not the way it feels.....there's something in my eyes..I think about the love that would save me.....give me the number if you can find it"😆

  7. Juan Ignacio Carbonell Porras

    Cuanto más lo escucho más me gusta. Espectacular. Y mira que me gusta en jazz

  8. Domain Admin

    I don't get the same sense of pain that is in Croce's version. I was hoping to hear it sung by someone with a better voice than his, but this isn't it.

  9. Adam 474

    Masterpiece.I love it!

  10. PILAR MIRANDA

    André Rieu me fascina, lo conocí en Australia

  15. Shinnysmilever

    great gentle album from talented artist

  16. Pedro Teixeira

    Um dos melhores albuns dos ultimos anos

  17. Martin Chicknavorian

    This album blew me away.  It just goes to show what great arranging and orchestration can do.  Diana (or whoever wrote the arrangements - don't want to slight anyone) brings these songs to life as never before.  Most of these songs were written in the 70s and much of the substance at that time was overpowered by loud percussion, driving guitars or screaming vocalists.  She has removed the "noise" and allowed the elegance of the chord progressions and lyrics to shine through.  The piano embellishments are more from an "accompanist" standpoint, and allow for the emotion of the vocals to rise to the forefront.  I could have never imagined how fantastic some of these songs were in their original format until she "peeled away" the layers that obscured their hidden treasures and allowed us to appreciate them so much more completely.  Anyone who is not moved by listening to this album, well, "how insensitive" they are.

    +Martin Chicknavorian Brother, she have always shown other and us , less is more. For those that understands us.

    +Martin Chicknavorian Great story in the lyric by Jim Croce..it's conveyed well by Diana. I kinda think she's more bluesy than most jazz singer. :) just MHO.

  18. Roger CP

    Jazz fácil y comercial

  19. Christof Petzelt

    I love her and her musik.

  20. vietorkoreen

    Shouldn't have changed the words.  Could have been a good gay song.

  21. Iryna Tarasyuk

    love her .....great album...

    Shinnysmilever

    Iryna Tarasyuk i also love her songs :)

  22. Leopold Takáč

    Úžasne urobené - super klavír super Diana !

  23. David Bailey

    Well done; and great to hear Stills and Nash on harmony!!

    Four2nothin Gaming

    David Bailey actually it was my man Jim Croce.. I know it's bee 3 years and you may know by now, but perhaps anyone else may want to find the original.

    Unless there is a stills and Nash version..

  24. Rex Mundi

    Great to see someone of Diana Krall's talent and prominence covering a Jim Croce song. Hope she can get behind the "Induct Croce in the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame' movement. Like to see more well-known singers covering Jim's music.

  25. Alex Bayley

    Great piano!

  26. commercial interiors
