Paul Brady – The Long Goodbye lyrics

I know they say if you love somebody
You should set them free (so they say)
But it sure is hard to do,
But it sure is hard to do
I know they say if it don't come back again
Then it's meant to be (so they say)
Those words don't pull me
Through cause I'm still in love with you
I spend each day here waitin' for a miracle
But it's just you and me goin' through the mill
Climbin' up a hill
This is the long goodbye
Somebody tell me why,
Two lovers in love can't make it,
Just what kinda love keeps breakin' a heart
No matter how hard I try, Your gonna make me cry
Come on baby, it's over... Let's face it
All that's happenin' here is a long goodbye
Sometimes I ask my heart did we really...
... Give our love a chance
(Just the one more chance)
But I know without a doubt, that we turned it inside out
And if we walked away would it make more sense (only self defense)
But it tears me up inside, just to think we still could try
How long must we keep runnin' on a carousel
Goin' round and round and never gettin' anywhere
On a wing and prayer
Repeat chorus
Oh, long goodbye
