Ever since that first night
When I gave my love to you
Everything just seems so right
You are my sunlight shining through
And I've tried so not to let it show
Yet it seems sad because I know

Chorus
No matter how hard I try
No matter how hard I try
It's always a goodbye

You smile softly as you leave my bed
And I tightly hold your hand
You lean down to kiss my head
But there's nothing to be said
And if you say you want to stay
I'd know you'd soon be on your way

Chorus
No matter how hard we try
No matter how hard we try
It's always a goodbye

Repeat Chorus

So here we stand, you and I
You are too kind, I'm too shy
To say what we really mean
So we make life a masquerade
Never showing all, only the parts we play

Repeat Chorus
