Verse 1
The ice was falling on the High Plains
A winter storm had closed the roads again
My only choice was to ignore the warnings
'Cause you called and left a message you were giving back my ring .... now....

Chorus
Goodbye, usually means goodbye
When lovers don't talk it through and give love one more try
What could be worse than losing a lover and best friend?
Goodbye seems so final
When your love is a downhill climb
And goodbye really means goodbye

Verse 2
I know I can see you anytime
On the hall of pictures framed inside my mind
I can smell the roses in those photos
But they only fuel the questions burning deep inside my soul....why does....

Chorus
Goodbye, usually means goodbye
When lovers don't talk it through and give love one more try?
What could be worse than losing a lover and best friend?
Goodbye seems so final
When your love is a downhill climb
And goodbye really means goodbye

Bridge
I pulled into a Texaco to place another call
It only took a moment for your "hello" to say it all
In an instant, my heart was sailing down the road
Through your tears you told me, all I needed to know ..... that.....

Chorus.
Goodbye, doesn't have to mean goodbye
When lovers talk it through and give love one more try
What could be worse than losing a lover and best friend?
Goodbye seems so final
When your love is a downhill climb
But, goodbye, doesn't mean goodbye
Oh, I knew we could I do it
If we only talked through it
Because goodbye doesn't mean goodbye
Doesn't mean goodbye
Doesn't mean goodbye

I liked the tenderness and emotion in the song. The simple melody played well to convey emotion.The singer did a good job. There were a few places that needed to be slightly faster, but it was overall performed well. it was a tender Heartfelt performance.

The arrangement for this song is near perfect. The guitar and piano play off of each other well. I like the upright bass sound as well. The bridge is one of the strongest parts of the song in my opinion.

Love the clean sound of the intro. Great playing for something people are going to concentrate on totally. Very good guitar sound and playing. Piano part is very cool and fits with the tune well. Like the theme and concept of the song.
