Langhorne Slim – I Love You, But Goodbye

 

Lyrics of the most beautiful kind:

Why did you come?
If you can’t stay forever
How could you leave me all
alone on this Earth

Who was I before you?
I can’t remember
Why couldn’t I have been the one to
Leave here first?

I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye

No words of wisdom
Can make me feel better
Lately I’m having hard days and I
I curse the night

Maybe I’ll fly far away
And try to forget her
Maybe I’ll stay right where I am and
get on with my life

She said I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
A bird with clipped wings can still sing
But can no longer fly

What are we here for?
Who makes the decision?
For every beginning
There must come an end

I want to thank you darling
For all that you’ve given
I want to thank you, thank you for
being my friend

And I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
I love you but goodbye
