  • Your fingertips across my skin
    The palm trees swaying in the wind
    Images

    You sang me Spanish lullabies
    The sweetest sadness in your eyes
    Clever trick

    Well, I never want to see you unhappy
    I thought you'd want the same for me

    [Chorus]
    Goodbye, my almost lover
    Goodbye, my hopeless dream
    I'm trying not to think about you
    Can't you just let me be?
    So long, my luckless romance
    My back is turned on you
    Should've known you'd bring me heartache
    Almost lovers always do

    We walked along a crowded street
    You took my hand and danced with me
    Images

    And when you left, you kissed my lips
    You told me you would never, never forget
    These images

    Well, I'd never want to see you unhappy
    I thought you'd want the same for me

    [Chorus]

    I cannot go to the ocean
    I cannot drive the streets at night
    I cannot wake up in the morning
    Without you on my mind
    So you're gone and I'm haunted
    And I bet you are just fine
    Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out
    Of my life?

    [Chorus] Writer/s: ALISON LOREN SUDOL, ALISON SUDOL
