Here I stand
Without an overcoat in January
Where did I go wrong
I try to smile
But my heart's a heavy load to carry
Baby, now you're gone

Maybe there's a way to stop
The rain before it's falling
Maybe I'm a fool to even try

But I can't say goodbye
How can I walk away
When my heart wants you to stay
And I can't tell you why
I know the feeling's gone and I know I should be strong
But I just can't say goodbye

Here I go
Running after dreams and chasing rainbows
Trying to hold on to your heart
I made it through another lonely night
Just thinking of you
I long to be right where you are

Maybe there's a way to stop
The hands of time from turning
Maybe it just hurts too much to try

But I can't say goodbye
How can I walk away
When my heart wants you to stay
And I can't tell you why
I know the feeling's gone and I know I should be strong
But I just can't say goodbye

Maybe there's a way to stop
The rain before it's falling
Maybe I'm a fool to even try

I can't say goodbye
How can I walk away
When my heart wants you to stay, oh yeah
And I can't tell you why
Yes, I know the feeling's gone, and I know I should be strong
But I just can't say goodbye

No I just can't say goodbye
