  • I can hear the truck tires coming up the gravel road
    And its not like her to drive that slow, nothings on the radio
    Footsteps on the front porch, I hear my doorbell
    She usually comes right in, now I can tell

    Here comes goodbye, here comes the last time
    Here comes the start of every sleepless night
    The first of every tear I'm gonna cry
    Here comes the pain, here comes me wishing things had never changed
    And she was right here in my arms tonight, but here comes goodbye

    I can hear her say I love you like it was yesterday
    And I can see it written on her face that she had never felt this way
    One day I thought id see her with her daddy by her side
    And violins would play here comes the bride

    Here comes goodbye, here comes the last time
    Here comes the start of every sleepless night
    The first of every tear I'm gonna cry
    Here comes the pain, here comes me wishing things had never changed
    And she was right here in my arms tonight, but here comes goodbye


    Why does it have to go from good to gone?
    Before the lights turn on, yeah and you're left alone
    All alone, but here comes goodbye

    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Here comes goodbye, here comes the last time
    Here comes the start of every sleepless night
    The first of every tear I'm gonna cry
    Here comes the pain, here comes me wishing things had never changed
    And she was right here in my arms tonight, but here comes goodbye Writer/s: CHRIS SLIGH, CLINT LAGERBERG

  • Patti, Christopher's Mom from Santa Clarita, CaMy son was killed in a tragic accident June 5, 2011, and this is my song for him. It hurts to listen to this song, but it is a welcomed pain. Gary sings the hell out of this song and I find myself almost screaming trying to sing along. I think I'm trying to replicate the power Gary has in his voice because it helps with the pain from losing my son and only child.
  • Roxanne from MinnesotaI love this song, always have but the video has always had me confused as to the meaning. Lol
  • Tracy from HawaiiThe girl is coming to say goodbye to her father, the boy is her son who died, the woman is her mother and they are not on good terms...hence “why did everything go from good to gone”!!
  • Confused from BostonLove this song - but I thought it was a Parent and Child saying goodbye to the Mother? Anyhoo
  • Mary from Saint Joseph, MoSo did she leave or did she pass away. I have wondered this for such a long time and i love knowing what songs are about if anyone can tell me please I will be happy to know
  • Todd from Glasgow, KyThe young boy is her son that died earlier. The older gentlemen is her dad that recently died. She came back to say goodbye to her dad. Her deceased son was there to take her dad to the other side.
