Christopher Cross — Don't Say Goodbye lyrics

Words by Christopher Cross and John Bettis
Music by Christopher Cross and Billy Alessi

I guess I knew we'd come to this
Where the love can't cool the anger
So many times settled with a kiss
Love in trouble
The trouble is
You and me
Strong words, so nonchalant
Come on,
We don't mean half of what we say
You say you like gettin' what you want
Me too
But I
I'll never say I never want to love you again

Don't you say goodbye
Don't you say goodbye
When you're walking out that door
Don't you say goodbye
Don't you say goodbye
Baby, don't you say goodbye

It's not a matter of weak or strong
Arms can hold you
Or they can hold you down
I can dance to the saddest song
But I won't let you stay
Where you don't belong
Oh, so while you're out there busy bein' free
Just remember
One of those roads leads back to me

Don't you say goodbye
Don't you say goodbye
When you're walking out that door
Careful what you say
You might be back someday
Baby, don't you say goodbye

I want you
I need you
But I'll let you go
If you want it that way
It's your choice
But my voice
Will whisper every day
Every step of the way

Don't say goodbye
Girl, I'll tell you why
It just might turn out that way
Don't say goodbye
Even with your eyes
Baby, don't you say goodbye

I know you care somewhere
Inside you hide the truth away
(Behind a thin disguise)
Your heart will change your mind someday
Baby, don't you say goodbye
