You Didn’t Said Goodbye

Back in my hometown as I was walking down the street.
I came upon the place where you first knocked me off my feet.
Thinking back on yesterday I start to wonder why.
I know you had to leave me, but you didn’t say goodbye.

When simpler days come, calling and they start asking for the truth.
And I am forced to ponder all the follies of my youth.
Excuses are exhausting and so hard to justify.
But I was so much young and stupid when you didn’t say goodbye.
-
No one ever told me that the first time was the best.
And I’d spend all my life comparing you to all the rest
Making love to you was such a sweet sounding lullaby.
Melodies long forgotten and you didn’t say goodbye

I really had it good and so I thought needed more.
It used to come so easy, that I guess I just got bored.
When I found I had a hunger that I couldn’t satisfy.
So I took all I could get and you didn’t say goodbye
-
I got so good at the game that I finally fooled myself.
In to thinking I could keep you in a cage up on my shelf.
When my conscious asked the jury if I had alibi.
My guilt it overwhelmed me and you didn’t say goodbye.

One day I had decided that I couldn’t lie no more.
At our first apartment as you were headed towards the door.
I never meant to hurt you and I’m sorry that I lied.
Still don’t know what I was thinking and you didn’t say goodbye.
-
Even though I knew, things would never be the same.
I wish you had believed me when I told you I could change.
You didn’t hear a word I said you just turned away and sighed.
It was the last time that I was near you and you didn’t say goodbye.

You went your way, I went my way, and that’s just the way it is.
Every day since then I’ve been undoing what I did.
Sometimes late at night I still hang my head and cry.
When I think back on the day that you didn’t say goodbye.
-
Miles have come between us, and I guess we’ve grown apart.
I wish I would have known then what I know now from the start.
I don’t think I ever told you just how hard I’ve tried.
To never be the man I was the day you didn’t say goodbye.

It’s been 20 years now, since your love belonged to me.
I am all grown up with a wife and family.
I hate to finally say it because of what it would imply.
But I’m so happy that you’re happy that you didn’t say goodbye.
