Don't wait for me...I'll be a long time comin'
Unless by then, you have told me something
To show how much you care
I've done much more than as a man I should have

Why did you... not do all you could have... to show
How much you care?

Over and again I've wondered was I wrong
Kept thinkin' that I maybe shoulda come along
But there comes a time in every man's life
When he must be strong

And my time's come
And if you're gone
Then I guess I'll cry and hold to memories
Of "what might have beens"

[Repeat: x2]
And when I finally leave
That will show how much I cared
