Zac Brown Band - Goodbye In Her Eyes Lyrics




I could tell that it was over
When her lips met mine
It was an emptiness in her voice
Hesitation when she smiled
She didn't have to say a word
It was just so plain to see
She had found what she'd been looking for
And I knew it wasn't me

I saw goodbye in her eyes
I don't think I can change it
There's no way to disguise
We will never make it

Sometimes I feel like a clown
Who can't wash off his make-up
The life she wanted ‒ it was gone
Prince Charming ‒ I wasn't
But I would trade a thousand Babylons
To be in her arms tomorrow
Oh, but like the tide her love has come and gone
And it's time for me to go

I saw goodbye in her eyes
I don't think I can change it
There's no way to disguise
We will never make it

Now she sees right through me

Should I hold on to what we've got
Is it just a waste of time?
One thing that I know for sure
I saw goodbye in her eyes

I saw goodbye in her eyes

I know you got somebody new now
All my candles have burned out
He's gonna love the way you shine
So did I
So don't smile at me it ain't what you mean
(Goodbye)

With that goodbye in your eyes
I know that I can't change it (now you see right through me)
There's no way to disguise
We will never make it

I saw goodbye in your eyes
I know that I can't change it (now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes!)
Should I hold on
We will never make it (now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes!)

Should I hold on
Is it just a waste of time?
One thing that I know for sure
I saw goodbye in your eyes
I saw goodbye in your eyes
I know that it's over

  5. Free Spirit With Nature

    That’s so beautiful 😍. I agree with you . I am single by [email protected] by God somebody is going to fall in love with me , this time , not because of my looks . They’re not going to see me , but love my beautiful soul. I say no to lots of dates . But I do have the right to be picky . I deserve to be happy.
    I’m an excellent cook .
    Animal Lover.
    Never once cheated.
    I have my degree.
    I’m a writer , a landscape artist,a poet, a songwriter, who treats everyone I meet with kindness, dignity and respect.
    I love the outdoors, hiking,swimming,canoeing, I play guitar, and I love learning. I’m moving again,in a few days ,but I cannot wait to get started on my landscape painting. I’m not great at drawing,so I honestly thought,that I’ wouldn’t be a very good painter. I was wrong. I was really good. I love life ,and I love baking bread from scratch. I love traveling,and people who lie to me , I will forgive,but not forget.
    I will tell my future man.,this .
    If you must lie , then lie in my arms forever.
    If you must steal, then steal every precious moment we have together in this world 🌎.
    If you must cheat , please cheat death , because when I do meet you , I’m going to love you 😍, like you’ unconditionally. The way you deserve to be loved .
    I pray we all find that love . I asked so many people this before.
    Always choose to be kind ,somebody somewhere is always going through something that we know nothing about. Do the right thing !❤️
    I’d love you through it .

    I could tell that it was over

    It was an emptiness in her voice
    Hesitation when she smiled
    She didn't have to say a word
    It was just so plain to see
    She had found what she'd been looking for
    And I knew it wasn't me

    I saw goodbye in her eyes
    I don't think I can change it
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    Sometimes I feel like a clown
    Who can't wash off his make-up
    All she wanted it was gone

    Should I hold on to what we've got
    Is it just a waste of time
    One thing that I know for sure

    I saw goodbye in her eyes

    I know you got somebody new now
    All my candles have burned out
    He's gonna love the way you shine
    So did I
    So don't smile at me if it ain't what you need
    With that goodbye in your eyes
    I know that I can't change it
    (Now you see right through me)
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I know that I can't change it
    (Now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes)
    Should I hold on
    We will never make it
    (Now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes)
    Should I hold on
    Is it just a waste of time
    One thing that I know for sure
    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I know that it's over

    This sad because it makes me think of my uncle jeffery he lives in California and i don't get to see him and two. Years and i can't stop cry because this sad😭😭😭😭😭

    The eyes tell everything.

  40. David Lloyd

    I was usually the one to end relationships, but with my first marriage, she was the one to bring things to a close. It seemed to come as such a surprise, and I searched for clues I might have missed. One was the way she seemed distant when we were last "together." I asked her about it after we split and she told me that she knew it was the last time we'd ever be together. Had I been more observant, I would've seen the "goodbye" in her eyes.

    I absolutely love the line where he says, "He's gonna love the way you shine...so did I." That, I think, is the hallmark of true love. Most people ruminate on their ex and focus on the negative. But there were at least some things that we loved about them. For me, one of those things was her sincere warmth and light. Zac captured this, like most things in his songs, perfectly.

  41. dawn dastoli

    I'm a new ZB fan within the last 2 months. I must have been under a rock somewhere! Damn!

    Ja Crispy

    Yeah his new stuff is so bad that it's depressing... this is coming from a fan that has loved his music almost from the very beginning 😢

    Rhonda Boncutter

    I have loved these guys for years! Love them so so much!

  42. jimbodiced

    I've been there one too many times. Where even at the beginning, you somehow know and have the foresight to see that there's an expiry date to the magic. That, or it's some self-fulfilling prophecy. With any luck, the next one I will see my unborn children in her eyes rather than goodbye.

  43. Troll Of Jom

    How does one go from making great music like this, to crying about being labeled country and dropping a song talking about how “I need a new bitch”? Zac, I pray for you and I pray your daughters never listen to you new song “swayze”

    Lmao I’m embarrassed for you

  44. Gabriel St James

    When the goodbye comes and you know she’s the one that you’ll never get over.. Here I am years later hearing this song and opening the old wound like butter through a knife.. It’s been a decade, 10 fuckin years and I still miss for her like she just left yesterday........

  45. Ken's Kitchen

    I could tell that it was over

    And I knew it wasn't me

    To be in her arms tomorrow

    What a song! The vocals are incredible! I love metal but this is a killer tune.

  49. Gavin Gudgeon

    I wonder what this Zac Brown would think if he heard the music he released in 2019.
    This is a masterpiece, this is ZBB I love, not the rubbish from The Owl album.

  50. David Mcanelly

    I've been with my girl a ur. now, we've stuck it out, through addiction and struggles of money. Everyone was against us, during this year, her eyes said goodbye more than once...and yet now I'm here, and my soul let's my eyes grow dim. In tired

    Today I wrote this to my ex wife who walked back into my life.

    "Take a moment before answering my question, and think about what I ask from a neutral standpoint. Why do you consistently contact me? Everytime you do, I either talk too much, or bombard you with emotional nonsense. You've obviously become a much stronger person than I'll ever be, and although you may have your reasons for becoming ardently stronger than most, you are still stronger. So why do you contact me, a weaker individual? What do you gain from my misery? You are far more intelligent than I. You have a family, children, husband, parents. Why do you care about how I am doing? To do so, is emotional suicide. Go live your life, a great life, and bury my memory. Although your husband **** is "dysfunctional", he loves you, and has proven this. Better than I or your other ex's could ever do. You've got both parents, and they love their children, maybe at times they have been trying, but they love you and your brother so. You were blessed with children who love you as you love them, so do yourself a great honor, and leave me to be buried in my misery. All my life I've either burned bridges or pushed those that loved me without measure, away. I struggle with the loss of my mother to suicide, the loss of my father and sister. I don't want to hurt anyone anymore, especially a woman I loved and still love. You. If you ever cared for me, then you will forget about me Pamela, as if I am no longer living. You will, without a shadow of doubt, be very successful in this life and be surrounded by a plethora of love and admiration. Go live your life, the best you can. I'm rooting for you. Best regards."

    I don't want to say goodbye, but I love her too much, to burden her with my grief. I am a man of constant sorrow. I miss my mother, father and sister dearly. From losing them all, I morphed into a chaotic being. Sadness, anger and as I stated before, misery. People that I've pushed away, wanted to share in my misery, but I can't allow, nor will I ever allow anyone to feel this heartache. The bridges I've burned, I set them on purpose, so that although I long for love, I would never want to subject anyone to this pain. My future is loathsome, but even so, I will suffer alone.

    I'll never forget the day my daughter, 5 or 6 years old at the time said "daddy, this song reminds me of you and mommy; do you think Zac Brown writes songs like this to let people know that they are not alone in their pain" she's now 13 and continues to amaze me.

    Seeing goodbye in someone you loves eyes it the worst feeling imaginable. But you move on and it makes you appreciate your next love even more. If you love someone, treat them that way before you lose them.

  92. SGTYORKIE

    I spent the last few weeks of the best relationship I ever had not knowing the feeling I kept having in my heart.... now I realize I felt our relationship falling apart. The one thing I spent all my time trying to make perfect for her, I changed everything I could to make her happy but anytime something upset me I was in the wrong for being upset. She once broke down in tears because of an insecurity she had and I sacrificed part of one of the most important things in my life just to make sure she knew she had nothing to worry about but she wouldn’t return any of that effort I was putting out. I was heartbroken the night she called me and told me it was over, I could barely function the next week or so. She on the other hand took another guy to the prom we were supposed to go to within a couple weeks of dumping me...

  93. Anthony Hawk

    His best song!
