The Goodbye Song
Well my darling, it`s time to go,
And the hardest part is letting you know,
It`s not easy for me to say goodbye,
It`ll break my heart to hear you cry.
I`ve waited here for far too long,
I`ve stood and watched it all go wrong,
But autumn`s here and it`s time to fly,
Like migrating birds to a warmer sky.
And I don`t know where I`m off to now,
I can`t really say why, and I don`t know how,
I just have to leave and get away,
And I beg you please, don`t ask me to say.
For you dear girl, I`d give my all,
But that great big world has started to call,
I`m torn between what`s right and wrong,
And I`ll end up singing the “Goodbye” song.
The saddest tune you ever will hear,
Sets the strongest hearts trembling with fear,
It leaves behind just tears and pain,
And partners it leaves alone again.
A thousand nights unable to sleep,
I hope, my girl, you find your feet.
You`re a lucky girl, with a lovely face,
And soon another will take my place.
Don`t think I`m trying to make it good,
Though God alone knows I really should.
I`m delaying it now, don`t get me wrong,
The time is hear, and it wont be long,
Until I sing the “Goodbye” song!
