lyrics

I'm walking up to the stairs
Unlock the door and I slip inside
The living room is barren
And the air is cold as ice

The house is empty
And I don't know when you're coming home
You left so early
And I really wish you'd left a note
(please leave a note, babe)

And I never meant for this to happen
And I never meant for you to know, oh
I'm hoping and I'm praying
Hear the words I'm saying
Darling, tell me when you go

I'm stepping through the kitchen
And I end up in the hall
And I'm faced with the empty space
Where the pictures hung on the wall

The house is empty
And I know you're not coming home
You left so easily
And I'm glad you didn't leave a note
(yeah, I'm glad, babe)

And I hoped that this would never happen
And I wanted you to never know, oh
I'm begging and I'm pleading
Down upon my knees, I'm asking
Darling, tell me when you go

And I never wanted this to happen
And you never ever should have known, oh
I'd tell you that I'm sorry
But I know you won't hear me
So darling, tell me when you go

And I know this never should have happened
And you should have been the first to know, oh
Tell me you won't come back
I think I need to hear that
So darling, tell me when you go
I'm busy just existing
And you're the one I'm missing
So darling, tell me when you go
