She said I’d never been good at goodbyes

As she sat there with candlelit eyes

And the tear on her cheek

Said what she couldn’t speak

Because tear drops can never tell lies


There’s a silence when people they go

A void for emotion to grow

A missed beat of two hearts

When a lover departs

It’s the way of the world don’t you know
