Emmylou Harris – If This Is Goodbye lyrics

Those famous last words are lying around in tatters
Sounding absurd whatever I try
But I Love you, and that's all that really matters
If this is goodbye if this is goodbye

Bright shining sun, would light up the way before me
You were the one, made me feel I could fly
And I love you, whatever is waiting for me
If this is goodbye if this is goodbye

Who knows howlong we got, or what we're made of
Who knows if there's a plan or not
There is our love, I know there is our love

Those famous last words could never tell the story
Spending unheard and the dark of the sky
But I love you, and this is our glory
If this is goodbye, if this goodbye
If this is goodbye, if this goodbye
