Branch, Michelle - Long Goodbye Lyrics




Empty cup, broken plate
All those things you never say
Don't you know by now I can take it like it is

The sky is dark
Full of rain, it ain't ever gonna change
The words are are written on your face
Go on and say it
Go on and say it
Go on and say it

Don't you give me that long goodbye
Don't stick around and make it worse
Don't leave me hanging on all night
To every pretty little word
Don't you drag me down that road
Of miles and miles and miles of hurt
Don't you give me that long goodbye

Do it fast, make it sweet
Pull the world out from under my feet
Don't you worry a thing about me, cause I'll make it

Give me the truth to understand
Since things don't work out like you planned
Well my heart is in your hands, go on and break it
I can take it
I can take it

Don't you give me that long goodbye
Don't stick around and make it worse
Don't leave me hanging on all night
To every pretty little word
Don't you drag me down that road
Of miles and miles and miles of hurt
Don't you give me that long goodbye

I promise I won't cry
You won't see one teardrop fall
I'm a big girl after all
I can take it
I can take it
I can take it

Don't you give me that long goodbye
Don't stick around and make it worse
Don't leave me hanging on all night
To every pretty little word
Don't you drag me down that road
Of miles and miles and miles of hurt
Don't you give me that long goodbye

    we need to do something to help artists being held hostage by record companies. We've lost so many years of great music like this by one of my favourite singers. looking forward to the new album. Great to have you back Michelle x 😀
