Lyrics YOU SAY YOU'LL CALL
WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT,
YEAH, RIGHT.
YOU MUST THINK THERE'S SOMETHING BETTER,
AND YOU JUST HAVEN'T MET HER,
SO I SHOULD PUT MY LIFE ON HOLD
AND WAIT.
YOU'LL BE BACK
WHEN YOU'RE READY,
FUNNY,
YOU EXPECT ME TO GATHER DUST,
TO TRUST THAT MUCH.

WELL BABY,
I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
BABY,
I DON'T SIT ON SHELVES,
LIKE A COAT THAT'S OUT OF FASHION
WHILE YOU GO
AND TRY ON SOMETHING ELSE.
I DON'T STAY IN STORAGE
LIKE YOUR BEATLE ALBUMS DO,
BABY, I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
WAITIN' AROUND FOR YOU.

YOU SAY WE'RE MOVING A BIT TOO FAST...
THAT'S ALL.
YOU WANT ME TO BE PATIENT,
A SELFISH EXPECTATION
WHEN YOU DECIDE
THAT MY LOVE FITS YOU JUST RIGHT.
YOU'LL WANT ME TO BE HERE
WHEN YOU SEE YOUR WAY CLEAR
TO CARRY ON,
WELL, THAT'S WHERE YOU'RE WRONG.

BABY, I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
BABY, I DON'T SIT ON SHELVES,
LIKE A COAT THAT'S OUT OF FASHION
WHILE YOU GO
AND TRY ON SOMETHING ELSE.
I DON'T STAY IN STORAGE
LIKE A WORN OUT PAIR OF SHOES,
BABY, I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
WAITIN' AROUND FOR YOU.

I'M NOT SOME HAND-ME-DOWN,
I WON'T BE A PLACE TO FALL,
AND I WON'T BE AROUND
WHEN YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
AFTER ALL.

I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS,
BABY, I DON'T SIT ON SHELVES,
LIKE A COAT THAT'S OUT OF FASHION
WHILE YOU GO
AND TRY ON SOMETHING ELSE.
STACKED UP IN THE CORNER,
JUST YESTERDAY'S NEWS,
OH, NOBABY
I DON'T HANG IN CLOSETS
WAITIN' AROUND FOR YOU.

Lyrics YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
HOW CLOSE WE CAME,
THE WORD GOODBYE
WAS ALMOST SPOKEN,
JUST ONE MORE THOUGHTLESS WORD
AND I WAS READY TO LEAVE.
THEN THE THOUGHT OF HOW I'D FEEL
WAKING UP ONE DAY WITHOUT YOU,
I CLOSED THE DOOR
ND TURNED AROUND,
YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE IT
IF YOU HAD SEEN IT.

THERE I WAS...
THE NOTE WAS EVEN WRITTEN,
SEVEN PAGES...
IT TOOK ALL DAY,
THERE I WAS...
I'D MADE MY DECISION
WITH NOTHING BUT LOVE
STANDING IN THE WAY.

THIS IS WORTH THE EMPTY CAB,
THIS IS WORTH THE BAG UNPACKING,
IF ONLY FOR THE LESSON LEARNED,
I'M GLAD
TO GO THROUGH THIS MOMENT OF TRUTH,
YEAH.

NOTHING
BUT THE TOUCH OF YOUR HAND,
NOTHING
BUT YOUR KISS, I KNOW,
DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO THINK TWICE,
BABY, HOW COULD I GO?

Lyrics IT HITS WHEN I SET THE TABLE
OR WHEN I TURN OUT THE LIGHTS,
AND I DON'T HEAR A VOICE
THAT WHISPERS, GOODNIGHT.
IT HITS WHEN I'M IN THE BACKYARD
AND THE SUMMER SKY SMELLS LIKE RAIN.
SMALL THINGS LIKE THAT
MAKE MEMORIES COME BACK AGAIN.

SHAME ON ME
FOR KISSING YOU WITH MY EYES CLOSED,
AND TELLING MYSELF I HAD SO MUCH TIME.
LOSING YOU NEVER CROSSED MY MIND.
SHAME ON ME
I THOUGHT THE WAY THAT IT WAS
WAS HOW IT WOULD ALWAYS BE.
TO LOVE SOMEONE SO CARELESSLY,
SHAME ON ME.

I'M TAKING MORE TIME FOR SUNSETS
AND THE SOUND OF THE BIRDS AT DAWN,
'CAUSE I KNOW HOW IT FEELS
TO MISS WHAT'S GONE.
IT HITS WHEN I'M OUT WITH OLD FRIENDS
AND I HEAR THEM SPEAK YOUR NAME,
OH HOW I WISH THERE WAS SOMEBODY ELSE TO BLAME.

OH I LOVED YOU SO CARELESSLY,
SHAME ON ME.
