"What I Didn't Do" as written by Felix Bernard and Richard B. Smith....
I didn't cheat, I didn't lie
So her leaving took me by surprise
Just a note on the table
Saying we're through

At first I went crazy, so it took me sometime
But I finally read between the lines
It's not what I did
It's what I didn't do

I didn't tell her each day I loved her
I took it for granted, somehow she knew
I didn't hold her when she needed a shoulder
It's not what I did, it's what I didn't do

Now it's easy to see why her love died
She was planning her nights by the TV guide
She needed me with her
More than I knew

I was too busy working getting ahead
When I should have been home loving her instead
It's not what I did
It's what I didn't do

I didn't tell her each day I loved her
I took it for granted, somehow she knew
I didn't hold her when she needed a shoulder
It's not what I did, it's what I didn't do
Oh, it's not what I did, it's what I didn't do
