I Never can say goodbye, no, no, no, no, now.
I never can say goodbye.

Even though the pain and heartache
Seems to follow me wherever I go,
Though I try and try to hide my feelings,
They always seems to show,

Then you try to say you're leaving me
And I always have to say no,
Tell me why is it so.

That I never can say goodbye, no, no, no, no, now.
I never can say goodbye.

Everytime I think I've had enough
And start heading for the door,
There's a very strange vibration
Piercing me right through the core,
It says, "Turn around, you fool, you know you love him more and more."
Tell me why is it so.

Don't wanna let go.
Never can say goodbye.
Boy oo oo baby.
Never can say goodbye. No no no no no oo.
Oh, I never can say goodbye.
Boy oo oo.

I never can say goodbye. No no no no no oo.
Never can say goodbye, no, no, no, no, now.
I never can say goodbye.

I keep thinking that our problems
Soon are all gonna work out.
But there's that same unhappy feeling,
There's that anguish, there's that doubt.
It's the same old dizzy hangup,
Can't do with you or without.
Tell me why is it so, don't wanna let you go.

    No matter how much pain you give me. I can never let you go because i love you with all my heart & even when i had enough of you & want to break up i can't because i love you more than the word "love". We had beautiful memories which i will always cherish & that's why i can never say goodbye.

    My meaning to never can say goodbye is, even throughthe tough times and heartache that a person puts us through the love that we have for them keeps it's hanging on, and we can never say goodbye or leave them

    Never leave the love you had behind. If you say goodbye to your past love, it will keep following you around. As it follows you around, you might have a feeling that you want to go back
