So Long And GoodBye

Had a love and she ran away
Didn’t have all that much to say
I use to tell her you gotta grow up learn not to lie
To bad she listened and now its goodbye
Guess that’s the lesson when you teach you are taught
But I thought I knew that lesson guess I forgot

So long and good bye the suns never gonna set in those eyes
I wouldn’t let her go and yet now she’s gone
Wanna pull you towards me I see now that that’s wrong
If you want to love her let her go if you want to love her just let her know

Love its gonna hurt you love its gonna break you down
But it will matter what you do with all that empty sound
Laughter as it echos still matters as you fall
Hate as it grows will wait tells its lies make you so tall

So long and good bye the suns never gonna set in those eyes
I wouldn’t let her go and yet now she’s gone
Wanna pull you towards me I see now that that’s wrong
If you want to love her let her go if you want to love her just let her know

Circle bound did I not learn from all that sound
Now I’m dancing with a different woman we hold each other tight
Our disguise is to good again ain’t no room for the light
I know there’s a glare from all we have done
It’s keeping me from looking you in the eyes
Got my sights on another one

So long and good bye the suns never gonna set in those eyes
I wouldn’t let her go and yet now she’s gone
Wanna pull you towards me I see now that that’s wrong
If you want to love her let her go if you want to love her just let her know

I loved the chase I love the excitement of the kill
One more notch on my bedpost oh what a thrill
When I look back on all those tear-stained eyes
I wonder did I win the prize
Theres a lesson here that I forgot think my sons gonna teach me
One day when I stop

So long and good bye the suns never gonna set in those eyes
I wouldn’t let her go and yet now she’s gone
Wanna pull you towards me I see now that that’s wrong
If you want to love her let her go if you want to love her just let her know

  1. Very nice. The lessons of youth are always the harshest ones, but I usually found they left the nicest scars. Those are the ones you can sit and compare with the new lady in your life who’s just busy looking for the open spot where she can add her mark to the ones you’ve been discussing over that bottle of Chablis. Best of luck with that says the old man, as he reaches for another letter to open. Lol.

  2. “When you teach you are taught”
    “Our disguise is too good again ainโ€™t no room for the light”
    – Love these lines.

    You have a way of words. As I was reading this poem, I felt this deep sense of regret. The whole “If I knew then what I knew now…” thing.

    Passenger’s “Let Her Go” was also playing in my mind.

    1. Thanks so much.. I actually work with my friend who adapts much of what I write into songs. A few that are currently posted have already been adapted. I would love for this one to become one though. Considering your encouragement I will bring it up with him again.

      Those already adapted are: My ecstasy, Benefit of Doubt, Red Vermilion white, Safe Walls..

      1. He’s actually going to finally! release some of his work publicly soon. He is a real head-case about having it perfect. When he does I will let you know where it is available. He does amazing stuff, I can see it, but he gets lost in his worries.
