(Hugo Montenegro / Bradford Craig)

When I close my eyes I can see your face
Tho' I try I can't believe that you are gone
There's a part of you that's a part of me
And no matter where I go it comes along
Reminding me of all the good times
And, of course, some of the bad
But then again, some of those hard times
Were the best we ever had

How can I learn to say goodbye
To the only life I ever knew?
Learn to say goodbye to you?
How can I learn to say goodbye?
Tell me - how do you expect me to
Say goodbye to you?

When I needed you, you were always there
You were more than love to me, you were a friend
They say that time is all that matters
And to live it while it lasts
But I can't stop from reminiscing
Or stop living in the past

How can I learn to say goodbye
To the only life I ever knew?
Learn to say goodbye to you?
How can I learn to say goodbye?
Tell me - how do you expect me to
Say goodbye to you?

How can I learn to say goodbye
To the only life I ever knew?
Say goodbye to you?
How can I learn to say goodbye?
Tell me - how do you expect me to
Say goodbye to you?
