What's wrong baby?
Don't they treat you like they should?
Did you take them for it?
For every penny that you could?

We once walked out on the beach
And once I almost touched your hand
Oh, how I dreamed to finally say such things
Then only to pretend

Don't you know what I'm thinking?
(Know that I'm thinking)
Driving 4:05 past midnight
You know I miss you
(Don't you know that I miss you?)
Ninth and Ash on a Tuesday night

I would write to you from Museum Mile
I toast to you; your whisper, your smile
Up the stairs at Weatherford
A ghost, each place I hide

If you don't, don't know, why'd you say so?
Would you mean this please if it happens?
If you don't know, why would you say so?
Won't you get your story straight?

If you don't know, honey why'd you just say so?
'Cause I need this now more than I ever did
If you don't know honey, then you don't

I left you waiting
(I know I left you waiting)
At the least could we be friends?
Should have never started
(Never started)
Ain't that the way it always ends?

On my life I'll try today
There's so much I've felt I should say but
Even if your heart would listen
I doubt I could explain

If you don't, don't know, why'd you say so?
Would you mean this please if it happens?
If you don't know, why would you say so?
Won't you get your story straight?

If you don't know, honey why'd you just say so?
Cause I need this now more then I ever did, did
If you don't, well honey, then you don't
If you don't, well honey, then you don't

Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo

Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo-doo
Dee-dah-dah doo

So here we are now
A sip of wine, a sip of water
Someday maybe
Maybe someday we'll be smarter

And I'm sorry that I'm such a mess
I drank all my money could get and
I took everything you let me have
And then I never loved you back

If you don't, don't know, why'd you say so?
Would you mean this please if it happens?
If you don't know, why would you say so?
Won't you get your story straight?

If you don't know, honey why'd you just say so?
'Cause I need this now, yeah, need this, need this
If you don't, well honey, then you don't
If you don't (don't) know honey, then you don't
If you don't, well honey, then you don't

If you don't know, honey, honey then you don't
