Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye

I loved you in the morning

Our kisses deep and warm

Your hair upon the pillow

Like a sleepy golden storm.

Yes, many loved before us

I know that we are not new,

In city and in forest

They smiled like me and you,

But now it's come to distances

And both of us must try,

Your eyes are soft with sorrow,

Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

 

I'm not looking for another

As I wander in my time,

Walk me to the corner

Our steps will always rhyme,

You know my love goes with you

As your love stays with me,

It's just the way it changes

Like the shoreline and the sea,

But let's not talk of love or chains

And things we can't untie,

Your eyes are soft with sorrow,

Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

 

I loved you in the morning

Our kisses deep and warm,

Your hair upon the pillow

Like a sleepy golden storm.

Yes, many loved before us

I know that we are not new,

In city and in forest

They smiled like me and you

But let's not talk of love or chains

And things we can't untie,

Your eyes are soft with sorrow

Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.
