Didn’t He

He didn’t say he was the one he didn’t say he was in love he didn’t say fuck you & he didn’t He wasn’t one to settle down he wasn’t one to stay around he wasn’t one to pay his dues & he didn’t She didn’t say he was her dark handsome stranger & he was tall & strange He didn’t say brown is the color of his true love’s hair & hers was not brown It is always nothing left behind if something would have been enough He didn’t say nothing & neither did she He didn’t say she didn’t say he didn’t want to love her She didn’t say he didn’t say he didn’t want to leave her & he did anyway
