He said I'll call you Hon when I get there,
Ten minutes later he was in the air,
She dropped the kids at school and headed home,
Walked in and turned the front room TV on
She could tell that there was something wrong,
Every channel had the same thing on,
Now seven years have come and gone away,
But she's still hurting like it's yesterday,

'Cuz she wants to put her arms around his neck,
And look in his eyes so blue,
And say Honey I don't regret,
A single day I spent with you,
She wants to tell him that she loves him so,
And will until the day she dies,
It ain't that she can't let him go,
She just wants to say goodbye

He sits beside her in the nursing home,
Through her silver hair he runs a comb,
He hangs their wedding picture on the wall,
She don't remember who he is at all,
He tells her stories about the life they've lived,
From their first kiss to their last grandkids,
For seven months now she just sits and stares,
But if she wakes up he's gonna be right there,

'Cuz he wants to put his arms around her neck,
And look in her eyes so blue,
And say Honey I won't forget,
A single day I spent with you,
He wants to tell her that he loves her so,
And will until the day he dies,
It ain't that he can't let her go,
He just wants to say goodbye

No it ain't let that we can't let them go,
We just want to say goodbye
