John Denver – Kissing You Goodbye lyrics

Oh, at first it was just like heaven in your heart and in your arms
And paradise discovered in the sweetness of your charms
Yes, and every day a miracle to awake and be with you
And every night in your embrace another dream come true

Oh, but castles sometimes crumble, some rivers still run dry
And fairy tales are witches tales when the truth becomes a lie
And a pocket full of promises won't buy a diamond ring
And every word you said to me just didn't mean a thing

It's over now, you've gone too far I can't take anymore
Be careful now, don't hurt yourself when you walk through the door
I can hardly stand to look at you it makes me want to cry
Get your tongue out of my mouth because I'm kissing you goodbye

Oh, I suppose I'll never know why things turned out this way
And why the one you love the most is the one you drove away?
Yes, and I suppose I'll never, ever really understand
How I could think that you'd make me a happy married man

So now I sit and contemplate the reason for it all
The climb to heights of ecstasy, the failure and the fall
If a broken heart is purposeful it's in the lesson learned
But no matter what the reason is it hurts when you get burned

Now I don't care, I don't think I'll ever love again
Kemosabe used to mean "a good and trusted friend"
But now it stands for therapy and all the tears I cry
Get your tongue out of my mouth because I'm kissing you goodbye
Bye, bye goodbye
Get your tongue out of my mouth because I'm kissing you goodbye
