  • Lyrics
  • When you wake up
    And find me gone tomorrow
    Don't think I meant to hurt you
    I just did what we knew I had to do
    Oh, and all the time we knew
    The time was never right for us
    Time to leave this love behind
    I could never leave you
    Baby, if I see you cry

    I'll say good-bye for the two of us
    Tonight while you're asleep
    I'll kiss you softly one last time
    And say good-bye like I know we must
    There's just no other way
    And I couldn't bear to see your heart break
    So, I'll wait 'til you're asleep to say good-bye
    Please realize
    How hard it is to do this

    I'm trying to make it through this,
    Say good-bye just as gently as I can
    Please try and understand
    This time's just not the time for us
    We knew I couldn't stay
    But that don't make it easier to leave you
    So while I can find the strength
    I'll say good-bye for the two of us
    Tonight while you're asleep

    I'll kiss you softly one last time
    And say good-bye
    Before your arms embrace me
    Before your kisses take me
    Before your eyes can make me stay
    I'll say good-bye for the two of us
    Tonight while you're asleep
    I'll kiss you softly one last time
    And say good-bye like I know we must
    I'll wait 'til you're asleep

    To say good-bye for the two of us
    Tonight while you're asleep
    I'll kiss you softly one last time
    And say good-bye like I know we must
    There's just no other way
    And I couldn't bear to see your heart break
    So, I'll wait 'til you're asleep to say good-bye
    When you wake up
    And find me gone tomorrow,
    Don't think I meant to hurt you
    Good-byeWriter/s: DIANE EVE WARREN
