Lyrics: Say Goodbye

Say Goodbye

(R.J. Ritchie/B. Seger/E. Jurdi/G. Quist)

We haven’t really talked about it
All we do is walk around it now
I hate to say I’ve thought about it
I wish that we could make this work somehow
It’s not really complicated
I can hear it when you sigh
Comes a time we have to face it
Maybe it’s just time to say goodbye

Lately I can feel us drifting
Even though the good outweighs the bad
Feels like our world is shifting, but yet you are the best I’ve ever had
I still love to watch you sleeping
I still see that look in your eye
But there’s seeing and believing
And maybe it’s just time to say goodbye

Say goodbye, to all the times we treasure
Say goodbye, let the chips fall where they lie
Say goodbye, to things we cannot measure
Walk away, say goodbye

I’ll remember you forever
I’ll remember every single year
Running through the rain and laughing
And later in our bed with you so near
And I know when I am older
And the clouds fill up the sky
I may look over my shoulder
And know I was too young to say goodbye
Years from now when I am older
I may sit and wonder why
Will I look over my shoulder
And know I was too young to say goodbye
I was just too young to say goodbye
Say goodbye
