Power ballad for those times when signals have been missed and unsaid words need to be said.

lyrics

I DIDN'T THINK
words and music by Mary Lou Sudkamp and Rick Paul

Since you're gone I'?m looking back at things I didn't see
All the times you changed your plans so you could be with me
Nights you'd keep me talking long past when we said goodbye
How'd I miss the questions in your eyes

I didn't think to tell you
I thought you knew I cared
I didn't think you'd leave me
I took for granted you'd be there
So I guess what it comes down to
After all the pieces fall
Baby, I didn't think at all

When you left I almost drowned in tears I held inside
Couldn't see how wrong I'd been, or maybe it was pride
I never knew my heart could ever feel such pain
But now I realize I'm to blame

I didn't think to tell you
I thought you knew I cared
I didn't think you'd leave me
I took for granted you'd be there
So I guess what it comes down to
After all the pieces fall
Baby, I didn't think at all

How can I convince you to come back to me
I know it may be too late
Maybe I've sealed my fate
But I'm telling you now
I think ... no, I know I love you

I didn't think to tell you
I thought you knew I cared
I didn't think you'd leave me
I took for granted you'd be there
So I guess what it comes down to
After all the pieces fall
Baby, I didn't think at all
Baby, I didn't think at all
