I didn’t say ‘Don’t do it, babe,’ when he packed up to go.
I didn’t say ‘Come back here, honey, and try with me once more.’

And when he asked me if I loved him I just looked away
He’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, then I won’t stand in your way.’
He’s gone, and now I’m hearing all the things I didn’t say.

I didn’t take him in my arms and kiss away his 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 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 ‘Goodbye, good luck, God bless you,’ and he just slipped away.
And left me here to live with all the things I didn’t say.
