The birds stop their singing when I'm passing by
And even the flowers just stand there and cry
But they know the reason I have tears in my eyes they listened while you said goodbye
You say what you're seeking is over the hill
And that I'll find a new love but I never will
For you didn't know my whole world stood still and listened while you said goodbye
[ piano ]
The sun has stopped shining the moon hides it's face
He promised so much now he hides in disgrace
I guess all creation was there that night and listened while you said goodbye
You say what you're seeking...
