There you stood, next to me
And you waited, patiently
I approached, held you near
Then you whispered, in my ear

You didn’t tell me
You didn’t need me
You went and left it all behind
You didn’t tell me
You didn’t warn me
Didn’t it ever cross your mind?

Friday night, cancelled plans
Then I see you, holding hands
With a guy, now it’s clear
When you whispered in his ear

You didn’t tell me
You didn’t need me
You went and left it all behind
You didn’t tell me
You didn’t warn me
Didn’t it ever cross your mind?

Didn’t you tell me
That I was spending way too long
Wasting my time

Oh and I should have known
That I am better off on my own

You didn’t tell me
You didn’t need me
You went and left it all behind
You didn’t tell me
You didn’t warn me
Didn’t it ever cross your mind?

You didn’t tell me
You didn’t need me
Didn’t it ever cross your mind?
You didn’t tell me
You didn’t warn me
Didn’t you ever say goodbye?

Oh, oh yeah
There you stood
