Well, the watch in my pocket's never quite on time.
I'm like an old cow tail, always draggin' behind.
Seems I'm always runnin' just to catch the bus,
An' the last one to know she had given up.

Yeah, I was too busy thinkin' everything was all right.
Too busy stayin' out, drinkin' all night.
If I had any sense, I'd a-noticed the signs...
Goodbye was at the door an' knockin'...
I shoulda seen her leavin' comin'.

She left a note on the door, said: "You missed our date.
"Happy Anniversay, two days late."
Well, she must've been bored in this empty house,
'Cause she's livin' with a rock n' roll band down town.

Yeah, I was too busy thinkin' everything was all right.
Too busy stayin' out, drinkin' all night.
If I had any sense, I'd a-noticed the signs...
Goodbye was at the door an' knockin'...
I shoulda seen her leavin' comin'.

Yeah, I was too busy thinkin' everything was all right.
Too busy stayin' out, drinkin' all night.
If I had any sense, I'd a-noticed the signs...
Goodbye was at the door an' knockin'...
I shoulda seen her leavin' comin'.

Yeah, I'm a loser, I'm a flunky, I'm a heart-breakin' junkie,
Halfway to good-for-nothin'.
I shoulda seen her leavin' comin'.
