You left this morning on an early plane
You left your picture behind to haunt me
You left in a steady rain
You say you'll miss me, say you want me 

I'm left this mornin' with a world of doubt
I'm left this mornin' indecently exposed
So much we never did talk about
And your kiss goodbye, said the case is closed 

[Chorus]
I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose the best love that I've ever found
Don't want to lose you
Why didn't I cry when you said goodbye
Why didn't I break down, break down and say
I don't want to lose you 

We met last night in a public place
And your new lover was just across the street
But tears washed across your face
Girl I wanted to, hold you close to me 

I don't want to lose you
I don't want to lose the best love that I've ever found
Don't want to lose you
Why didn't I cry when you said goodbye
Why didn't I break down, break down 

I remember all the things that we did
The warmth of your smile
And your tender touch
I always knew I cared about you girl
I just didn't know how much  

[Chorus]
