lyrics

I’ll just Say Goodbye
I’ve got so much information but I’ve never been so dumb
With all the words I should have said left sitting on my tongue
I take one more look in glassy eyes your spirit is long gone
I take my mother by the hand sign papers and we’re all done
All done
I go by the house where I first found out it’s good to be alive
No surprise to weeping eyes just one car in the drive
But your shadow still remains
I still see you working on the lawn
And as much as you would disapprove
I can’t easily move on
I will never know the reason
Not this side of the pain
The more I think I understand the less I can explain
I will never know the reason
Not this side of the pain
So I’ll just say goodbye
She was saying nothing and I said even less
But you couldn’t weigh the tears
There was no measuring the stress
A little soul we’d never hold a sly devil’s test
What put us here it isn’t clear
It’s anybody’s guess
All my words are missing another’s verse is on my mind
“Rage, rage against the dying of the light”
I never missed a theory never skipped a single prayer
Now me and all my knowledge
Can only sit and stare
The only thing I know
Is I can’t let you go
The only thing I know
Is I can’t let you go
