(How could I say goodbye?)
I was gonna say goodbye to you tonight
But then you told me how much you missed me
& then you took me in your arms & kissed me
Oh how could I say goodbye?
Oh how could I say goodbye?

You're a troubled kind of guy, that's why, that's why
Tell me you can't stay for too long in one place
Without a word you'll go running off to someplace
Oh oh how you made me cry
Oh oh how you made me cry

Till you came back in your own sweet time
To kiss away the tears & tell me you're mine, mine

I was gonna say goodbye to you tonight
Tell you "I'm finished, I've had enough of you"
Then you walked in, I can't help it if I love you
Oh how could I say goodbye?
Oh how could I say goodbye?
To you, mmm, when you know how much... & fade
