  • That was a tough goodbye
    And what tore me down was watchin' her tryin' not to cry
    She asked me to stay and for a minute I thought I might
    Yeah, that was a tough goodbye

    That was a long night
    Full of lookin' back and wonderin' what it might've been like
    Must've drove her memory across at least ten state lines
    Yeah, that was a long, long night

    And I'm not quite ready yet
    To settle down or even let
    Someone get a hold of me
    'Cause I'm not done being free
    I still have a few roads
    To travel down and Lord knows
    I got way too close that time
    That was a tough goodbye

    That was a hurtin' kind
    Not the so long after awhile, see ya soon, some other time
    Where I just walk away and everybody's fine
    No, that was a hurtin' kind

    And I'm not quite ready yet
    To settle down or even let
    Someone get a hold of me
    'Cause I'm not done being free
    I still have a few roads
    To travel down and Lord knows
    I got way too close that time
    That was a tough goodbye

    I know I won't find anyone better
    I, and I can't keep runnin' forever

    And I'm not quite ready yet
    To settle down or even let
    Someone get a hold of me
    'Cause I'm not done being free
    I still have a few roads
    To travel down and Lord knows
    I got way too close that time
    That was a tough goodbye

    That was a tough goodbye
    That was a tough goodbye
    And what tore me down was watchin' her try not to cry Writer/s: Josh Thompson, Tony Martin
