The Souther-Hillman-Furay Band - Pretty Goodbyes lyrics


You don't want to hear it but the words in my mouth
You don't wanna know it so I'll try not to shout
But I've been lonelier with you than I was without.

And now there's nothing to say but goodbye
You keep going crazy
Well, you may never know why
But if you leave it to me, oh baby we're gonna see.

(Pretty goodbyes) you just take it easy and don't cry now
Well, you don't wanna see it but the moon's in your eyes
And you don't wanna know you've been living a lie
I use to love you but baby the good has gone by.

We've been here for so long
And we could make it easy
Baby, pretty soon when I'm gone
Well, you can open your eyes and have a good cry.

But say goodbye, tell me goodbye
Say a pretty goodbye
Baby, you could be gone with a smile on your face
Instead of letting those good tears go to waste.

It's your life, don't look back
You know nothing's been taken
You can close your eyes, what will I ?
Everybody is mistaken sometimes.

Now the hurt's in your eyes and you show it
So why stick around till you blow it ?
Say goodbye, oh baby tell me goodbye
