Hollies – There's Always Goodbye lyrics

Ever since that first night
When I gave my love to you
Everything seemed so right
You are my sunlight shining through

And I tried so not to let it show
Yet it seems sad because I know

No matter how hard I try
No matter how hard I try
There's always 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 said you want to sing
I know you'd soon be on your way

No matter how hard we try
No matter how hard we try
There's always goodbye

So here we stand, you and I
You are too kind and I'm too shy
To say what we really mean

So we make life a masquerade
Never showing all, only the parts we played


No matter how hard I try
No matter how hard I try
There's always goodbye
There's always goodbye
