When you told me ‘bout your dreams
That you wanna see the world
t' was something you just had to do
it's just a month or two you promised me
I did the right thing, let you go
I never could have guessed how miserable it made me

Do you know what's on my mind
letters, postcards telling me
you would come home this fall
you can't keep leading me on
Expecting me to wait for you
to decide to return

Now you're halfway around the world
Living day to day
not knowing where you'll end up next
It must be swell for you
But I am back here stuck at home and all alone
I wonder if you still miss what we had together

Do you know what's on my mind
Images of you and strange guys lining up for you
Are you telling me the truth, or are you just waiting
for me to snap and to break up

My friends tell me I should let go
To meet new chicks and just have fun
I must admit they have a point
guys, introduce me to this blonde
I'm gonna take her home
And do the things to her that you denied me

Do you know what's on my mind
all the girls I've taken home with me to forget you
You can stay right where you are
It's up to you I don't care anymore and I'm not sorry
