I said, “Where’s the money?” You said, “It’s all gone.”
I said, “What the hell did you spend it on?!?”
You said, “I paid the bills!” And I walked out the door,
Saying, “I ain’t gonna live like this no more!”
When I returned that evening to find that you were gone,
I knew I’d hurt your feelings, I knew that I’d done wrong.
We never had a dime to spare, a story sad but true.
And I walked out and laid the blame on you.
Now like raindrops falling against the windowpane,
A sea of guilty tears is running down my face.
I thought you were such a fool, I was too blind to see.
But now I know the foolish one was me.
But when I said goodbye, you know I did not mean forever.
I thought surely in a day or two, we’d be back together.
And when I said goodbye, I did not understand
You would not be back again,
That just one word would end
Everything we’d planned…..
