I didn’t say ‘Don’t do it, babe,’ when he packed up to go.
And when he asked me if I loved him I just looked away
I didn’t say ‘I’m sorry, babe, ‘cause half the fault was mine.’
I said, ‘If that’s the way you want it, then I won’t stand in your way.’
I didn’t take him in my arms and kiss away his tears.
I thought of all the many games I’d be free to play.
I didn’t say, ‘Take off your coat, I’ll make some coffee and we’ll talk.’
I said ‘Goodbye, good luck, God bless you,’ and he just slipped away.
