She said, darling I'm in love with your mind
The way you care for me, it's so kind
Love to see you again, wish I had more time
She was laughing as she brushed my cheek
Why don't you call me, angel, maybe next week
Promise now, cross your heart and hope to die
CHORUS
But I misunderstood
But I misunderstood
But I misunderstood
I thought she was saying good luck
She was saying goodbye
But I misunderstood
But I misunderstood
But I misunderstood
I thought she was saying good luck
She was saying goodbye
Things I try to put shine in her eyes
Wire wheels and shimmering things
Wild nights when the whole world seemed to fly
She said, the thing that's so unique
When we're together we don't have to speak
We'll always be such good friends, you and I
CHORUS
She was saying goodbye
She was saying goodbye
She was saying goodbye
