Lyrics

Goodbye
(Words & Music by Keith Brown)

Well there’s something I should say before the door closes behind me,
And I pray it sinks through now and I hope you’ll realize…
I spent a long time chasing you down, it was all in vain
To find that you were just a girl who plays them ol’ mind games,
And I have played them all before, so lady open up your eyes…

CHORUS:
Because I really don’t need the lies, and you ain’t gonna see the poor boy cry,
And so I’m gonna sever all our ties,
And what I’m trying to say to you, my girl, is goodbye…

Now I tried so hard so often to get through to you,
And I hoped that I could reach you now and make you realize,
But I just can’t live a lie no more, I hope you see
The many things that make a man turn on his heels and leave,
You go your way, I’ll go mine, up ahead there’s sunny skies.

CHORUS:
Because I really don’t need the lies, and you ain’t gonna see the poor boy cry,
And so I’m gonna sever all our ties
And what I’m trying to say to you, my girl, is goodbye…


At first you seemed like such a prize, now I can’t take another day,
You had me fooled but I soon got wise
And now I’ll soon be on my way, and I got nothin’ left to say…

A rolling stone would surely hold no moss,
And I’m not the one to hang upon your lover’s cross,
So goodbye my girl, I leave and it’s my gain, your loss,
Now it’s true.

And I’ve been thinkin’ about all the nights I walked the streets,
Well I was wonderin’ where my mind was,
So I’ll live my days without you but it’s better that it be this way,
Of all the things that people do and all the games they play
Love can be the biggest game but that’s the price we pay
For the happiness we search for each and every day.

CHORUS:
But then, I really don’t need the lies, and you ain’t gonna see the poor boy cry,
And so I’m gonna sever all our ties and what I’m trying to say to you, my girl

Is that I really don’t need your lies, the time has come to take you down to size,
It surely comes to you as no surprise
That what I’m trying to say to you, my girl, is goodbye…
