I Cannot Say Goodbye

by Matthew Welde

aimless traveler finds a prize

a good hearted woman who never lies

a union for the books

one look is all it took

to keep her on his mind

you been on my mind

 

you can leave me without another try

you can leave me high and dry

you may leave and I may wonder why

i can not say goodbye

 

fiery lovers find a key

soul desire; hot as can be

saving up to buy a ring

it’s good have the real thing

and I thought we were fine

so fine

 

but sometimes love don’t work out as you planned

even when you know it can

 

you can leave me without another try

you can leave me high and dry

you may leave and I may wonder why

i can not say goodbye
