She had her plan all worked out
while she waited for him to get home,
He was never there with her,
she was always home alone;
She packed the kids and took them
down the street to a friend,
And promised that she'd be back
real soon to pick them up again.

While he was sleeping, she was leaving,
she couldn't take it anymore,
She never knew what time of the night
he'd come staggering through the door;
With shaky hands and tear filled eyes
she put on her coat,
And on the kitchen table next to his keys
she left her goodbye note.

She waited for hours every night
for his key in the door,
Out drinking again with the boys,
coming home 'round three or four;
He'd fall asleep on the couch,
not even a good night kiss,
Just to have a happy life again,
that's all she ever wished.

While he was sleeping, she was leaving,
she couldn't take it anymore,
She never knew what time of the night
he'd come staggering through the door;
With shaky hands and tear filled eyes
she put on her coat,
And on the kitchen table next to his keys
she left her goodbye note.

While he was sleeping, she was leaving,
she couldn't take it anymore,
She never knew what time of the night
he'd come staggering through the door;
With shaky hands and tear filled eyes
she put on her coat,
And on the kitchen table next to his keys
she left her goodbye note.
Yes, on the kitchen table right next to his keys
he found her goodbye note.
