Ella Fitzgerald – Every Time We Say Goodbye lyrics
Everytime we say goodbye, I die a little,
Everytime we say goodbye, I wonder why a little,
Why the Gods above me, who must be in the know.
Think so little of me, they allow you to go.
When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to
Minor,
Everytime we say goodbye.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to
Minor,
Everytime we say goodbye.

    Most people identify with this as a love song to a love affair that has ended. However, my mother has dementia and this song speaks to me in that way. As her disease progresses, I find myself wondering "will she remember me the next time we meet or speak?" Mom was a talented amateur singer. I became a professional entertainer because of the love of the Great American Songbook repertoire she taught me. I've always loved this song but have never sung it. I will once she has transitioned. It will be my secret backstory to the song.
