That was a tough goodbye
And what tore me down was watchin’ her tryin' not to cry
She asked me to stay and for a minute I thought I might
Yeah, that was a tough goodbye

That was a long night
Full of lookin’ back and wonderin’ what it might've been like
Must’ve drove her memory across at least ten state lines
Yeah, that was a long, long night

And I’m not quite ready yet
To settle down or even let
Someone get a hold of me
‘Cause I’m not done being free
I still have a few roads
To travel down and Lord knows
I got way too close that time
That was a tough goodbye

That was a hurtin’ kind
Not the so long after awhile, see ya soon, some other time
Where I just walk away and everybody’s fine
No, that was a hurtin’ kind

And I’m not quite ready yet
To settle down or even let
Someone get a hold of me
‘Cause I’m not done being free
I still have a few roads
To travel down and Lord knows
I got way too close that time
That was a tough goodbye

I know I won’t find anyone better
I can’t keep runnin’ forever

And I’m not quite ready yet
To settle down or even let
Someone get a hold of me
‘Cause I’m not done being free
I still have a few roads
To travel down and Lord knows
I got way too close that time
That was a tough goodbye

That was a tough goodbye
That was a tough goodbye
And what tore me down was watchin’ her try not to cry
