OUTTAKES
A STORY OF HEARTBREAK, DENIAL AND A LIFE CHANGING PHONE CALL With no spoken dialogue and the song Operator performed by Toby Lightman telling the story: Not the Way It Feels shows the emotional heartbreak of betrayal, whilst a caller attempts the seemingly simple task of getting a phone number from an operator. Released February 28, 2010 
Operator (That’s Not the Way It Feels) has been covered by a number of artists over the years. Among these was the 2004 version performed by Toby Lightman and simply titled Operator that was featured in Not the Way It Feels. Out of respect for both performer Toby Lightman and songwriter Jim Croce, in the film Not the Way It Feels, though it is the Toby Lightman Operator version of the song, it is credited under the title Operator (That’s Not the Way It Feels); this also connects with the title of the film Not the Way It Feels. Operator performed by Toby Lightman is available on the Everwood - Original Television Soundtrack that was released on October 19, 2004. The Toby Lightman version was first released as a single on December 28, 2004. It is featured in Everwood season 3 episode 22 “Where the Heart Is”, and this episode originally aired on May 23, 2005.
The song Operator (That’s Not the Way It Feels) was originally written and performed by Jim Croce in 1972. The album You Don’t Mess Around with Jim of which the song was originally a part of, was released in April 1972, and the single release date of the song was August 23, 1972.
Operator (Toby Lightman version) lyrics Operator, well could you help me place this call? See the number on the matchbook is old and faded He's living in L.A. with my ex best friend they say A girl he said he knew well and sometimes hated Isn't that the way they say it goes? Well, let's forget all that And give me the number if you can find it So I can call just to tell 'em I'm fine and to show I've overcome the blow, I've 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, well could you help me place this call? Well, I can't read the number that you just gave me There's something in my eyes, you know it happens every time I think about a love that I thought would save me Isn't that the way they say it goes? Well, let's forget all that And give me the number if you can find it So I can call just to tell 'em I'm fine and to show I've overcome the blow, I've 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 No, no, that's not the way it feels Operator, well let's forget about this call There's no one there I really wanted to talk to Thank you for your time, oh you've been so much more than kind And you can keep the dime Isn't that the way they say it goes? Well, let's forget all that And give me the number if you can find it So I can call just to tell 'em I'm fine and to show I've overcome the blow, I've learned to take it well I only wish my words could just convince myself That it just wasn't real, I've 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 No, no, no, that's not the way it feels Written by James Croce Copyright © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, BMG Rights Management US, LLC
In the original Not the Way It Feels teaser, Phoebe Gast as The Caller reads aloud the first ten lines of the song Operator. She also reads the entire song lyrics as part of The Making of Not the Way It Feels. These are the only times we hear The Caller say the Operator song lyrics, since in the actual short film Not the Way It Feels, these lyrics are sung by Toby Lightman.
As established in Not the Way It Feels teaser 2, The Operator's name is Mike.
Though unheard in the final film, a complete script that was adapted around the Operator song lyrics was written by Lee Neville. Both Phoebe Gast as The Caller and Lee Neville as The Operator performed the full dialogue from the Lee Neville written script- there is no miming involved. The intention throughout was for the song lyrics to carry the film, and so transition editing choices between The Caller and The Operator were based on timing of the song and inspired action, rather than timing of the performed script dialogue and action.
Not the Way It Feels had its first public screening in Ladbroke Grove, London, England on February 28, 2010.
