|You know how I feel|
I know how you feel
But no matter what happens,
I donâ€™t want to say goodbye.
I know you gotta leave
Because life takes it separate paths,
But I donâ€™t want to say goodbye.
I want the best for you,
I really truly do,
But you know in my heart,
That I donâ€™t want to say goodbye.
Wherever life takes you,
I always want to be there,
But sometimes what you want canâ€™t always happen,
And even though I canâ€™t always see you,
Know that I never wanted to say goodbye.
We may talk on the phone,
Or see each other occasionally,
But we both truly know,
That we donâ€™t want to say goodbye.
Iâ€™ve been crying all day,
Because of the fact that I canâ€™t have you,
And though you try to comfort me,
I just donâ€™t want to say goodbye.
But baby, will you promise me
That even when you leave,
You call me, and be there for me
Promise me that youâ€™ll cry for me when Iâ€™m sad,
And help me when Iâ€™m down
Just let me know that you didnâ€™t want to say goodbye.
Because both you and I know in our hearts,
That we didnâ€™t want to say goodbye.
I didnâ€™t want to let go,
And I didnâ€™t want to see you leave
You wanted to stay here with me,
Yet we both know we had to let go,
Baby, Iâ€™m trying to stay strong just because you asked me to,
But inside Iâ€™m torn up, ripped apart, needing you, my love
We know weâ€™ll keep in touch,
But inside, I never wanted to say GOODBYE.
