Loveless, Patty - How Can I Help You Say Goodbye Lyrics




Through the back window of a '59 wagon
I watched my best friend Jamie slippin' further away
I kept on waving 'till I couldn't see her
And through my tears, I asked again why we couldn't stay
Mama whispered softly, Time will ease your pain
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same

And she said, How can I help you to say goodbye
It's OK to hurt, and it's OK to cry
Come, let me hold you and I will try
How can I help you to say goodbye

I sat on our bed, he packed his suitcase
I held a picture of our wedding day
His hands were trembling, we both were crying
He kissed me gently and then he quickly walked away
I called up Mama, she said, Time will ease your pain
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same

And she said, How can I help you to say goodbye
It's OK to hurt, and it's OK to cry
Come, let me hold you and I will try
How can I help you to say goodbye

Sitting with Mama alone in her bedroom
She opened her eyes, and then squeezed my hand
She said, I have to go now, my time here is over
And with her final word, she tried to help me understand
Mama whispered softly, Time will ease your pain
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same

And she said, How can I help you to say goodbye
It's OK to hurt, and it's OK to cry
Come, let me hold you and I will try
How can I help you to say goodbye

How can I help you to say goodbye

Loveless, Patty How Can I Help You Say Goodbye Comments
  1. goog & fb perm-record Reminder

    I realized, after being a hate crime victim twice, and much more... that I was going to have to let go of most of my grievances, and stop complaining; and, by extension, that I was basically going to have to let go emotionally of most of my old relationships. Life is brutal, and I'm still trying. But I can practically hear God singing this with Patty Loveless... "Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same. How can I help you, to say goodbye? It's okay to hurt; it's okay to cry. Come let me hold you, and I will try. How can I help you to say goodbye?"
