I guess he's working late again
I don't need to wonder where he is
But I do
He ought a know that by now

I know his job takes a lot of him
There's not much left for him to give
But I need more
He ought a know that by now

[Chorus]
It's not like he's gotta read my mind
To know what I'm feeling after all this time
It's just so hard to hold onto what is never around
He ought a know that by now

He used to promise soon things would change
It's been years and it's still the same
And that hurts
He ought a know that by now

I've grown so used to being alone
Couldn't be much worse if I were gone
And in a way I am
He ought a know that by now

[Chorus]

Heartache and coffee at midnight motel
Leaving him was hard as hell, but I did
He ought a know that by now

I didn't try to explain
No goodbye underneath my ring
That was all I left
He ought a know that by now

That was all I left
And he ought a know that by now
