What's it all about?

A boy sits by the telephone waiting to call a girl but not daring to because she might say no. At last he summons up the courage, phones her and discovers someone else's asked her first and she said yes. Now's the time to deal with the fear of being rejected. No one gets through life without being hurt. At this point the boy who's listening to this song is probably saying that it's easier said than done and it's true.
