Say Goodbye

  • If I seem distant, baby I am
    Words are like scissors, in your hands
    And there's no script to follow, so I just close my eyes
    That way it won't hurt so much, when we say goodbye

    I feel just like an actress, up on the stage
    I can't believe, what I'm hearing myself say
    And a porch light is my spotlight, so I play along with this lie
    That way it won't hurt so much, when we say goodbye

    Did you ever love me? Does it even matter?
    Did you even notice, the whole word shatter?
    I just want to hold you, and tell you that I'm sorry
    But I just keep it all inside
    That way it won't hurt so much, when we say goodbye

    My heart feels like a circus
    It's too much to take in
    It's hard to lose a love
    But you were my best friend

    So walk this high wire, alone tonight
    That way it won't hurt so much, when we say goodbye
    That way it won't hurt so much, when we say goodbye Writer/s: HILLARY LINDSEY, CHRIS LINDSEY, AIMEE MAYO, TROY VERGES
