DAVE ALVIN lyrics - Goodbye Again

DAVE ALVIN
"Goodbye Again"

[Her:]
Goodbye was the last word
You said to me.

[Him:]
That was so long ago
Would you forgive me, please?

[Her:]
Did you get my letters?
Read them at all?

[Him:]
You know I'm no good at writing.
But, I've been meaning to call.

[Her:]
I saw your new love.
She looks a little like me.

[Him:]
She looks like an angel.
If that's what you mean.
But we've had some troubles
And, I've been thinking of you.

[Her:]
Well, if you're asking to come back
Tell me what will you do?

Will you say goodbye again?
Goodbye again?
Do you really want me?
Or do you just need a friend?
My arms long to hold you.
Feel the warmth of your skin.
But it would hurt me too much
To hear goodbye again.

[Him:]
Well, I promise that this time
My love will be true.
Baby, I promise I'll always
To be here just for you.

[Her:]
I want to believe it.
I wish I could try.
But the last word you tell me
Is always goodbye.

[Him:]
Goodbye was the last word
She said to me.
