Lyrics
I tried my best to get things over,
Did everything that I could do.
I didn't really want to hurt you,
But you must have realized we were through.

Now don't it make you feel cryin',
Watching a good love slowly die?
You and me could spend a lifetime tryin',
But we'd be better off just to simply say goodbye.

Just like two fools we couldn't make it,
The movie just went on too long.
I've been 'round and you've been through it,
But now I know we're getting strong.

Now don't it make you feel cryin',
Watching a good love slowly die?
You and me could spend a lifetime tryin',
But we'd be better off just to simply say goodbye.

It's time we burned our old love letters
And started out on a brand new life.
No one else can come between us,
'Cause I'm not your man, you're not my wife.

Still it makes me feel like cryin',
Watching a good love slowly die?
You and me could spend a lifetime tryin',
But we'd be better off just to simply say goodbye.

Still it makes me feel like cryin',
But we'd be better off just to simply say goodbye,

Bye-bye, bye-bye,
Bye-bye, bye-bye,
Bye-bye, bye-bye,
Bye-bye, bye-bye.
