The Goodbye Girl


Goodbye
To the smart, strong stallions who roam
To my elegantly, weathered wooden home
I wish I had a heart made of chrome

I say goodbye
To the beautiful blue up high
And welcome a new cumulous sky
Does everything I love have to die?

‘Cause just when you think
This broken rose has something to say
A cool breeze called love blows my way
Then its goodbye to the leaves that couldn’t stay

So I say goodbye
To all the blushing brides in the world
And dreams of freckle faced babies with curls
‘Cause Love never stays for the goodbye girl
