Good-bye My Love

©1995 Nick Robinson (FTH Ch 5, pg 52)


Good-bye my love, I’m leaving you

The time has come; the dream fell through

But it’s nothing you did, or didn’t do

Just more the feeling I’m getting from you

But don’t think I don’t love you – oh no please

And don’t think I don’t care, ‘cause it’s brought me to my knees

But I can’t ignore the signs my mind sees

All the signs are there, so I think it’s time to leave


It looks like our lives have taken a different turn

The ground is shaking; the fire’s too hot, now it burns

Our love’s lived its life and the lesson’s been learned

And I guess you won’t be my wife, but you don’t seem concerned

Now my past has taught me if the love goes astray

Just pack your things – best be on your way

‘cause if you did all you could do, and there’s nothing left to say

You’ll only be killing time if you decide to stay


But I’ll always remember the days and nights we shared

The love we felt, the love we made, it just can’t be compared

And I’m going to miss your love and how it filled my heart

How it lifted us up, and felt so strong, right from the start

Yeah, making love was like a marathon

We made love so good - we made love so strong

We moved so smooth, it was like we’d always belonged

But that was all we could give

And that my love was all that was wrong

The End
