Knopfler, Mark - If This Is Goodbye Lyrics




My famous last words
Are laying around in tatters
Sounding absurd
Whatever I try
But I love you
And that's all that really matters
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Your bright shining sun
Would light up the way before me
You were the one
Made me feel I could fly
And I love you
Whatever is waiting for me
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Who knows how long we've got
Or what were made out of
Who knows if there's a plan or not
There is our love
I know there is our love

My famous last words
Could never tell the story
Spinning unheard
In the dark of the sky
But I love you
And this is our glory
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Knopfler, Mark If This Is Goodbye Comments
  1. john tuttle

    Mark makes his guitar gently weep

  2. rbarkely671

    I've loved this song since I heard the the version with Emmylou Harris on "All the Roadrunning" but never knew the context of the writing of it. I lost my wife of 47 years to can a year and a half ago and it will be hard to listen to this without tears in my eyes from now on.

  3. Samko D

    Immortal melody, like Romeo and Juliet...

  4. Екатерина Кулигина

    My soul is singing with you Mark

  5. Mgal

    When his guitar sings...

  6. Malcolm Norman

    So grateful this man chose to pick up a guitar..

  7. Aqua 1111
