Song Description

"Can't Tell You Goodbye" is about a lover who dies in war and cannot say goodbye.

Story Behind the Song

"Can't Tell You Goodbye" is about a lover's angish that goodbye's cannot be said as her war hero is dead.

Lyrics

The front page and headline
Called you a hero
My brave fallen soldier
Stands in the photo
But, words can't love or touch or hold me at night
This black and white headline
Can't tell me goodbye

Your medal they gave me
Stars with blue ribbon
It hangs on our family
Portrait abandoned
It can't play or teach or run with our two young sons
This cold empty medal
Can't tell me goodbye

Oh, courageous Captain
Oh, oh fate made your goodbye, mean goodbye

Your flag from the graveyard
Stars and stripes fading
The cloth hides the high price
Of freedom I'm paying
It can't help or heal or hold this weeping heart
This flag with my tear stains
Can't tell me goodbye

Oh, courageous Captain
Oh, oh fate made your goodbye, mean goodbye

This cold empty medal
Stars with blue ribbon,
This black and white headline
This flag with my tearstains
I don't need them, want them, love them. Throw them away
On top of your casket
To tell you goodbye

So, good-bye my Captain, my lover, my hero
Goodbye
