Don't Say Goodbye

[Explicit]

Description
A song about a crappy breakup I wrote about 11 years ago. I rediscovered it while going through some old binders of lead sheets, and decided to record it. I hope you enjoy discovering the pain of my past... I did.

Lyrics
Don't Say Goodbye

We're not the same, you and I
One of us true, the other flying
The trip was fun but the road got rough
I caught your meaning just soon enough

You showed me freedom and you gave your love
I played the game, and did it well enough
You've taught me so much
How to separate my feelings from a ****

I'll leave us with a thicker skin
And a new place where I begin

Don't say goodbye
Maybe we'll come together
another place, another time
Don't tell me lies
I know the signals, read the rules
And I'm not crying, not in front of you.

I'd rather leave an open door
Hoping someday you might feel more

Don't say goodbye
Although in short intensity
You really got your claws in me
Don't tell me lies
I know the signals, read the rules,
I'll keep my space and I'll keep my cool.

Love your vocal:
The places you go in terms of emotion and tone. It's hard when you're vulnerable and it's hard to separate two and be left alone. Pain. Nice melody and instruments.

Emotion
Glad the lyrics struck a chord, hopefully not too closely. My last tune "Step Aside" had a similar lyrical theme, from the other point of view. Check it out here:

Keys
Thanks... I am especially happy with the organ solo - it was an afterthought. The song didn't seem quite finished until it was there.
