Jeffrey Gaines – Goodbye lyrics
You don't know what you got
You're so caught up in you
All you see is what you stand to lose
You know you never really had a clue
You don't know what she feels
You're so afraid of the truth
Just a little boy standing in man-size shoes
You know you never really had to pay any dues
One day you'll wake up and she will be gone
You'll wonder what in the world went wrong
She gave you eight years of her life
Now all that's through
And all that she's left to give you is goodbye
Is goodbye
She don't mean you any harm
She endures more than you know
I hope you realize what a gift she brings
Stop thinking of ways to clip her wings
You don't know what she needs
You don't hear a word she says
She's got hopes in her heart that are hers alone
Happily playing her part
Of something she's outgrown
One day you'll wake up and she will be gone
You'll wonder what in the world went wrong
She gave you eight years of her life
Now all that's through
And all that she's left to give you is goodbye
Is goodbye
You may tell yourself she won't be gone long
But if you were me you'd see you had it coming
And you may even tell yourself
That you've been dead wrong
But if you were me you'd see she ain't done nothin'
One day you'll wake up and she will be gone
You'll wonder what in the world went wrong
She gave you the best years of her life
Now all that's through
And all that she's left to give you is goodbye
You don't know what you've got
