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 looked 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 say, "Take off your coat...
I'll make some coffee, and we'll talk".
I didn't say, "The road away is such
A long and lonely endless walk".
I said, "Good-bye, good luck,
God bless you" and she slipped away
And left me here to live with 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.
