  • Goodbye
    Goodbye

    Seems like I knew you since you
    Were a little girl
    Cried out to you, never thought
    That you'd ruin my world
    Now we're all broke up
    I glimpse you on the street
    Just gotta put up, shut up,
    Because we've split the sheets

    This world keeps spinning around
    But I just don't care
    I had my name written up in lights
    Wanted you to share
    I don't mind to do my thing, to do
    Yours yourself
    I can't stick around here no it's bad
    For my health

    I said goodbye to my dancer
    So long to my lover
    And though we never made it
    I've still got to say it
    I can't stand any other
    (and there's no-one to hold me)

    Got your letter just yesterday
    So you might as well get outta here
    Because you been paid
    It doesn't matter cos I've got my lover
    And she's into me
    But I'm finding it hard inside to set
    You free

    I said goodbye to my dancer
    So long to my lover
    And though we never made it
    I've still got to say it
    I can't stand any other
    (and there's no-one to hold me)

    Keeping all the hearts you get to break
    I've got another lover who loves
    Mistakes
    I never get close enough to touch
    'Cause you're cool when you're burning
    Cool when you're burning

    I said goodbye to my dancer
    So long to my lover
    And though we never made it
    I've still got to say it
    I can't stand any other
    (And there's no-one to hold me)

    Now I pretend
    That I don't care
    But I'm a lonely man
    And I'm running scared

    It's over now
    So baby walk away
    It's broken down
    It won't work again

    (And there's no-one to hold me)

    Goodbye to my dancer
    Goodbye to my dancer
    I got to walk away baby
    Goodbye to my dancer
    Goodbye to my dancer
    I gotta set you free baby

    Goodbye to my dancer
    Goodbye to my dancer
    Goodbye to my dancer
    I gotta let you go
    Goodbye

    (And there's no-one to hold me)
    Nobody to hold me, no oh no
