The Things I Didn't Say by Dr. Hook

The Things I Didn't Say (Shel Silverstein)

I didn't say, "Don't do it babe" when she packed up to go
I didn't say "Come back here honey and try with me once more"
And when she asked me if I loved her, I just turned away
She's gone and now I'm hearing all the things I didn't say

I didn't say "I'm sorry babe, 'cause half the fault was mine"
I didn't say "We'll work it out, 'cause all we need is love and faith and time"
I said "If that's the way you want it, I won't stand in your way"
She's gone and now I'm hearing all the things I didn't say

I didn't take her in my arms and kiss away her tears
I didn't say "My life don't mean a thing if you ain't here"
I thought of all the many games I'd be free to play
But all I do is listen to the things I didn't say

I didn't say "Take off your coat, I'll make some coffee and a talk"
I didn't say "The motorway is such a long and lonely, endless walk"
I said "Goodbye, good luck and God bless you", then she walked away
And left me here to live with all the things I didn't say

And now I guess she'll never hear the things I didn't say
