Procol Harum — The Long Goodbye lyrics

(Brooker / Fisher / Reid)
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/procol-harum-the-long-goodbye-lyrics.html ]
I know I've done my best
But that's no consolation
I s'pose I should have guessed
When I saw the invitation
you told me love was blind
But you were only joking
I know you've changed your mind
But I still keep on hoping.
Head held high
Eyes on the sky
I know I've got to be strong
If I see you again
it will be as a friend
With time for a long goodbye
You know I felt so bad
When I left you at the station
It was the first time I
Had felt such desolation
It's been a long, log time
And I still can't forget you
But my friends all say
That maybe I don't want to.
Head held high
Eyes on the sky
I know I've got to be strong
If I see you again
it will be as a friend
With time for a long goodbye
