goodbye, goodbye

I didn’t leave in the dead of the night

The sun saw me and it felt right

I knew none of us would shed tears that night

It had been coming for a long time

We were getting along by the by

I knew you didn’t love me right

It’s why I hopped on that flight

I couldn’t wait to get out of your sight


Hold on to everyone I left behind

It’s their love you wanted to find


There’ll be no more fights

Now you’ll have some peace of mind

You won’t have to check if I’m alright

No more efforts needed to be kind

And yes, the years will go by,

You’ll see a jacket or two of mine,

And no matter how hard you try,

Your mind will wander and start to remind,

You couldn’t even look me in the eye,

The day I left and bid you bye.
