From the recording Losing Her By Fractions

Lyrics

VERSE
Came down to breakfast; not an egg in sight
All I saw was her bag; she was packin’ light
There lay the paper; now I know she thought I might
Find my name in all that black and white

PRE-CHORUS
I knew where to look; I knew right where to go
Section C, page 3; what a very low blow

CHORUS
It was right there in the small print
(Oh) There it was, the evidence
Now I know where the love went
It was right there in the small print

VERSE
I should have seen it comin’; I should have known
That she was gettin’ close, oh, to leavin’ home
At least it’s not a headline on the front page
She could’ve made it worse in the information age

Repeat PRE-CHORUS

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Cause Number 6-2-3-7-8-9
I wish I could hide all the papers; I wish she was still mine
Now someone’s at the door with paper of a different kind
He just gave it to me, said I didn’t have to sign

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
It was right there for all to see
