Robert Cray - Forever Goodbye Lyrics




Another night without sleep
Watch the clock hit half past 2
Tape plays wild in my head
All the things I wished I'd said to you

Yesterday I went to call you
Pressed the number that came naturally
Hoping to hear your voice again
All the phone did was ring and ring and ring

Wouldn't have taken you for granted
If I knew then what I know today
Wish I could've had a moment of your time
Wish I could've taken your pain away

I know it's time to let you go
But the truth is so hard to bear
And every time I turn around
I always feel you standing somewhere near

Wouldn't have taken you for granted
As I sit here watch the clouds paint the sky
How do I live and fill this empty space
Never thought I'd have to try

Forever goodbye

Wouldn't have taken you for granted
As I sit here watch the clouds paint the sky
How do I live and fill this empty space
Well I guess I'll have to try

Forever...Goodbye

  11. Anja Treebusch

    het is misschien raar
    dagen gaan voorbij
    zonder dat ik aan je denk
    dat is maar al te waar
    niet meer leef voor jou
    het is nu stil in mij
    mijn huis is mijn geschenk
    omvat mij tegen kou
    tegen slurpers en negatieven
    liepen door mijn hoofd als dieven
    en ik nu ga.... lets go
    in een positieve flow
    mijn hoofd wat koud, maar vrij
    nog heel even dan is het mei

    Just getting into many of his songs...I just really knew his "best of " stuff. Really really good stuff when you dig deeper...like this song!

  17. Amy Brunner

    I love this song. Not sure if Robert Cray is singing about the end of a relationship or the death of a loved one. I think of my dearly departed Dad when I listen to this song.
