Lyrics
What's wrong baby?
Don't they treat you like they should?
Did you take them for it?
Or every penny that you could?

We once walked out on the beach
And once I almost touched your hand
Oh, how I dreamed to finally say such things
Then only to pretend

Don't you know I'm thinking? (know I'm thinking)
Driving 405 past midnight
Don't you know I miss you? (don't you know I miss you?)
Ninth and ash on a Tuesday night

I would write to you from Museum Mile
A toast to you
Your whisper
Your smile

Up the stairs at the Weatherford
A ghost each place I hide

[Chorus]
If you don't know
Why would ya say so?
Would you mean this please if this happens?
If you don't know
Why would ya say so?
Won't you get your story straight?
If you don't know, honey
Why'd you just say so?
'cause I need this now
More than I ever did
If you don't know, honey
Then you don't

I left you waiting (I left you waiting)
At the least could we be friends?
Should have never started (never started)
Ain't that the way it always ends?

On my life I'll try today
There's so much I've felt I should say but
Even if your heart would listen
I doubt I could explain

[Chorus]

If you don't, well honey
Then you don't

(Do, do, do)

So here we are now
A sip of wine
A sip of water

Someday maybe
Maybe someday
We'll be smarter

And I'm sorry that I'm such a mess
I drank all my money could get
Took everything you let me have
And never loved you back

[Chorus]

If you don't, well honey
Then you don't
If you don't, well honey
Then you don't

If you don't know, honey
Honey, then you don't
