Bonnie Raitt

I gave my love a candle
A promise at life
And I told 慽m when my number comes up
Winds would fill the sky
Me I抦 fixinto die
Moving down that same lonesome road
No I don抰 know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
You didn抰 have to fool me
You didn抰 have to lie
My love comes 憆ound like a thief in the night
But only love can make you cry
And we have walked side by side
Moving down that same lonesome road
No I don抰 know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Your love was like a diamond ride a wave
On a sea that calms my mind
Moving onward to a distant shore
Where the boats sail in a line
We have danced to a fateful rhyme
Moving down the same lonesome road
No I don抰 know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
You didn抰 have to fool me, no
You didn抰 have to lie
If it all came out so ugly
It抯 only my love that could make you cry
And we have walked side by side
Moving down that same lonesome road
And I still don抰 know why
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Ooh ooh ooh
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
