Sometimes Goodbye (Is a long, long word)

Sometimes goodbye is a long, long word
Easy to say but hard to feel
So don't ask what's goin' down
On the streets of your town
I can't explain why I'm still hangin' 'round
Except to say, you know the way

Sometimes goodbye is a long, long word
Easy to say but hard to feel
Oh my heart just lost a race
My head's in another place
There's a mirror somewhere waitin' for my face

But it’ll keep, I’m in too deep

Sometimes goodbye is a long, long word
Easy to say but hard to feel
Oh I know I should be gone
That old road rolls on and on
But somethin' makes me stay for one more dawn

Oh please don't cry, 'Cos you know why

Sometimes goodbye is a long, long word
Easy to say but hard to feel
Who'd have thought just one kiss
Would lead to all of this
Flower of pain in a bed of bliss

But that's not true, I guess you knew
And I did too
