(Verse 1)
I've been wondering how you've been
Did you ever find some happiness?
I've thought about you every now and then
A time or two I've looked up your address
It's been a long time since I talked to you
I wonder what I would even say
Would I tell you about some of the things that I've been through
Since you went away?

Well, maybe I should come and see you sometime
Still it wouldn't kill you to pick up the phone
But maybe you're like me, and I've been on your mind
But you think it's best to leave things well enough alone

'Cause what if words fail us?
What would we do, me and you?

(Verse 2)
I heard you married another time or two
I'm sure you've shed your share of tears
Me, I married the girl that you barely knew
And we've been happy now for years
We've been living the American dream
We own a home and drive two cars
You have some grandchildren you've never seen
And they wonder who you are

(Repeat chorus)

(Instrumental chorus)

(Verse 3)
I've been wondering how you've been
Did you ever find some happiness?
Here's a wish and a prayer for your welfare
I hope to God that you've been blessed

(Repeat chorus)
