about

This is a song about someone having to leave their lover. I think the hook is really strong. It has a great melody and the lyric is one everyone can relate to.

"Don't like to say goodbye
I'd rather say hello
Please don't ask me why
I really just don't know
I don't like to see you cry
But I really, really, really have to go"

This is really singer songwriter territory. I think you will see why this would make a great song to cover for any artist. This song would work for either gender with just a few lyrical tweaks.

lyrics

Don't like to Say Goodbye

By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) (c) Copyright 2000

She stood there at the depot
She looked so all alone
I wondered if she'd think of me
when she got back home

Post marked from a southbound train
Heading somewhere along the road
I'm moving fast right out of my past
And I'm packin' a heavy load

Don't like to say goodbye
I'd rather say hello
Please don't ask me why
I really just don't know
I don't like to see you cry
But I really, really, really have to go

Sitting in the depot
waiting for a train
Twisted on the inside
avoiding all the pain
I don't know where I'm heading

Outside it looks like rain
In a few minutes more
I'll be out that door
Can't say when I'll be back again

Don't like to say goodbye
I'd rather say hello
Please don't ask me why
I really just don't know
I don't like to see you cry
But I really, really, really have to go
