You don’t really like to cry,

But you have a million reasons why

and it’s so hard to watch you learning to lie.


Oh, hold me down to yesterday.

You know I’m not one to say

that you don’t really want to love him today.


But, you don’t need to be concerned with

all the things that time reverses.

There’s just something in the atmosphere tonight.


And those songs you sing are lovely

and it’s so nice to see you smile.

But, sometimes you have to say goodbye

for the final words to harmonize

in the songs like these.
