(HOW DO I SAY) GOODBYE

 

I THOUGHT WE’D BE TOGETHER FOR A HUNDRED YEARS

SHARE A LIFETIME OF SMILES

YESTERDAY YOU WENT AWAY FOREVER MY DEAR

TO A PLACE THAT I CAN’T GO TO FOR A WHILE

AND HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE, (HOW DO I SAY)

TO THE ONE I’VE LOVED FOR YEARS,

MY EYES ARE FILLED WITH TEARS

HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE, (HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE)

NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY

I JUST CAN’T SEEM TO SAY

I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU LAUGHING IN A DREAM LAST NIGHT

I SWEAR I SAW YOUR FACE IN THE CROWD

BUT DREAMS WILL ALWAYS FADE

WHEN DARKNESS SUBCOMES TO DAWNS LIGHT

AND I REMEMBER THAT YOU’VE GONE BEYOND THE CLOUDS

AND HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE, (HOW DO I SAY)

TO THE ONE I’VE LOVED FOR YEARS, (THE ONE I’VE LOVED, FOR YEARS)

MY EYES ARE FILLED WITH TEARS

HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE, (HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE)

NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY

I JUST CAN’T SEEM TO SAY

PEOPLE COME AND PEOPLE GO THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES

SOME ARE VERY PRECIOUS AND DEAR

THE LIGHT YOU GAVE WAS TAKEN WAY TO SOON

I GUESS GOD JUST COULDN’T WAIT TO HAVE YOU NEAR

AND HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE, (HOW DO I SAY)

TO THE ONE I’VE LOVED FOR YEARS, (THE ONE I’VE LOVED, FOR YEARS)

MY EYES ARE FILLED WITH TEARS

HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE, (HOW DO I SAY GOODBYE)

NO MATTER HOW HARD I CRY

THE TIME HAS COME TO SAY

GOODBYE

GOODBYE

GOODBYE
