When We Say Goodbye

Story Behind The Song

Story of my life! I have been in love with a man who I know loves me, but he ended up choosing the other woman. He said he should have married me and not her and yet he is still married to her, but he cannot keep away from me, nor can I erase my mind or my heart from him. It has been going on for 16 years and counting.

Do you look in her eyes
Like you look into mine
What do you see
Are you telling me lies
Each and every time
You're so hard to believe

B part
How can I be the one
When you're running to her
To hold at night
No I cannot hide
What I feel inside
It just don't seem right

When we say goodbye
You know that I'll be waiting
It's the chance I'm taking
Cos when we say goodbye
Baby I wonder

Do you touch her the same
Do you picture my face
And she don't know
It drives me insane
All these foolish games
Still I watch you go

When we say goodbye
You know that I'll be waiting
It's the chance I'm taking
And when we say goodbye
Baby I'm falling under

B Part
When you walk out the door
What are you lookin for
Are you comin back
Ooh you gotta tell me baby
It just isn't fair how you leave me here
Don't you see me cryin'

And when we say goodbye
You know that I'll be waiting
It's the chance I'm taking
And you know
That when we say goodbye
Baby I - I
Tell me cos I need to know
Before you go
Is this worth my time
Just look in my eyes
Say you wanna try
Or baby say goodbye
