Willie Nelson – I Just Can't Let You Say Goodbye lyrics

I had not planned on seeing you I was afraid of what I'd do
But pride is strong here am I and I just can't let you say goodbye
Please have no fear you're in no harm as long as you're here in my arms
But you can't leave so please don't try but I just can't let you say goodbye
What force behind your evil mind can let your lips speak so unkind
To one who loves as much as I I just can't let you say goodbye
The flesh around your throat is pale intended by my fingernails
Please don't scream and please don't cry cause I just can't let you say goodbye
Your voice is still it speaks no more you'll never hurt me anymore
Death is a friend to love and I cause now you'll never say goodbye
