Hello?
Checked the clock when I got home and realized I was alone
Sat for hours by the window, wonderin’ where did you go?
Couldn’t eat or sleep at all, took the pictures off the wall
Paced the place as time moves slow and I’m wondering where did you go?

Where’d you go?
Where’d you go?
I wanna know

Lit a cigarette I couldn’t smoke, wound the clock until it broke
Went to bed then took a shower, stared at tv for an hour
Did the dishes, made the bed, read a book I’ve never read
Any minute you will show and I’m wondering where did you go?

Where’d you go?
Where’d you go?
I wanna know

Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?

I opened the fridge, I opened a beer and played a tape I couldn’t hear (where’d you go?)
Emptiness began to grow and I’m wondering where did you go? (where’d you go?)
Watched the sun come up from the back stairs, thought about the last few years (where’d you go?)
I lost control, I screamed, I cried, I punched a pole and went inside (where’d you go?)

Packed my things called a friend, wished this emptiness would end
Wrote a note then tore it up, poured the beer into a cup
Sat on the couch, drank it slow, wondering where did you go?
I realized I couldn’t stay, grabbed my things and I went away

Where’d you go?
Where’d you go?
I wanna know!
