Lyrics

Long Goodbye

Two hours and I’m drinking, I could not find my phone

I’m sorry, I’ve taken us too far out now to get back home

But it’s so pretty out here after midnight below these bourbon skies

Feel it coming, please take me there gently into our long goodbye

Where’s our house, where’s our child, where’s our yard, where’s that little picket fence?

When I’m gone, and you’re here all alone, do you notice the difference?

I come home late, Lord I sleep all day long and you’re never touchin’ me

Could you deny as you look past my eye that we’re half of what we used to be?

And I’m still on these county roads, looking for faces and stories untold

I know you may never understand that I’ll never go back again

Come Monday and I’m lonely, our cupboards cleaned out bare

I can smell you in the bedroom, pretend that I don’t care

But it’s so pretty out here after midnight below these bourbon skies

Feel it coming, please take me there gently into our long goodbye…
