I didn't cheat and 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 and 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 T.V. Guide
She needed me with her, oh, more than I knew
I was too busy working, getting ahead
When I should of 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 and 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.

It's not what I did it's what I didn't do...
