If You're Leavin', Say Goodbye (Brandmeier/Caputo)
Lyrics
IF YOU'RE LEAVING, SAY GOODBYE

Here it comes, another morning without words
Love is lonely when it's wrong

Cos' I could say "Good Morning" and you'll look like you're not sure
Love is lonely when it's gone, long gone, long gone
So take that feeling over there, where I can't reach you, cos' you don't care
Don't keep secrets, don't tell lies
If you're leavin' , say goodbye

Everyday I hear another distant cry
Is it yours or is it mine?
Can't even start a fight cos' you'll just let it lie
Just another warning sign ...that you're not mine, you're not mine
So, take that feeling over there, where I can't reach you, cos' you don't care
Don't keep secrets, don't tell lies
If you're leavin', say goodbye

Why all those wasted nights staring at the ceiling
When you could open up and tell me what you're feeling?
What are you feelin'?

Every night you're near I think of words unsaid
All your thoughts and all your fears
I reach to kiss, you close your eyes and turn your head
Are you dreaming through those tears that you're not here? Oh no you're not here
Well, take that feeling over there, where I can't reach you, Cos' you don't care
Don't keep secrets, don't tell lies
Take that feeling over there, where I can't reach you, If you don't care
Don't keep secrets, don't tell lies

If you're leavin', say goodbye
Say Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
