Written by J.D. Souther

It hurts to say goodbye
And when the words are going by
The wind can blow them right back in your eye
You can almost see it

Time will let you know
And when you turn around to go
The aching in your heart begins to show
You can almost see it

You can almost see it
You can almost see it
You can almost see it going by

So you take another train
But the tracks all look the same
They run around in circles like a game
You can almost see it

I can almost see it
I can almost see it
I can almost see it going by
