"Don't Expect to Hear" was inspired by a period of insecurity in a relationship with a very independent woman. The true story has a very happy ending, but the song was better with the couple not getting back together.

Tom Ingersoll and Robby Baier share writing credits.


I don’t know where you are
I don’t know if you’re near or far
Or if you’re sailin’ on the sea
You could be halfway up a Redwood tree
Maybe you’re skiiin’ down a range
An extra hour where the time zones change
I always knew you had no fear
So I don’t expect to hear

You’re probably on your own
Far too busy to pick up the phone
Workin’ like you do
I always liked the way you see things through
Maybe you’re lyin’ in the shade of a
Saw Palmetto in the everglades
Sippin’ on a tall cold beer
I don’t expect to hear

I don’t expect it

Used to be a phone call you’d come over
I can still remember when our love was alive
When you said you’d be back come October
I guess that was your way of saying goodbye

I wonder what you’re up to know
You’re so elusive you should take a bow
You could be anywhere
Watchin’ the eagles on the cape somewhere
Maybe you’re fishin’ off a pier
I don’t expect to…

I don’t expect to hear
