Goodbye Lyrics

Artist: Night Ranger
Album: 7 Wishes

As the sun hides its head
Another nights rest
And the wind sings
Its same old song

And you on the edge
Never close, never far
Always there when I needed a friend

But it€™s hard living life
On this memory-go-round
Always up, always down
Spinning €˜round and €˜round and €˜round

And all this could be
Such a dream, so it seems
I was never much good at goodbye

There once was a time
Never far from my mind
On the beach, on the 4th of July

I remember the sand
How you held out your hand
And we touched for what seemed a lifetime

But it€™s hard
Leaving all this behind me now
Like a schoolboy so lost
Never found until now

And all this could be
Such a dream, so it seems
I was never much good at goodbye

And it€™s hard
Living life on this memory-go round
Always up, always down
Spinning €˜round and €˜round and €˜round

And all this could be
Such a dream, so it seems
I was never much good at goodbye

Goodbye (x2)

Even though the drummer sang the song, it was written by Jack Blades as a healing process for himself. His brother died of a drug overdose and he was never able to say goodbye. Even before I knew what this song was about I thought it was one of the best songs ever written. You could critique these lyrics for as long as you want and find something more each time, but that does not change the fact that they are beautiful. This song should go down with the best of all Beatles, Eagles, Zeppelin, and any other musical jaugernaut's tunes. Goodbye, one of the best songs ever written.

Sonny, You are absolutely right. In my humble opinion its is the best song ever written.

Always loved this song. Stuck in my mind for 20-plus years now. Should have been a much bigger hit for them. I didn't know the story behind it; very sad.

One of my favorites songs of the 80's. Now understanding the meaning of the song, the song is a lot more

My heart is breaking right now...from being in love with someone who does not feel the same. Strange when we put it on the line finally tonight this song was playing in the background. Right now the pain in almost unbearable...

my husband down loaded songs on to my ipod months ago. i was gardening last week and was listening to the songs. any i came to that i did not like i skipped. i was just about to skip goodbye when the tune caught my attention. thank god it did. it was fantastic and i have been playing it none stop...much to my familys horror. these guys should have won an award for this brilliant song.

Beautiful!!!!! Night Ranger never got the credit they deserved!!! I've been listening to them since high school and I will till the day I die.

Night Ranger is one of my favorite bands, it's really a pity that they weren't as popular as some of the era's other bands.

This song is timeless. Beautifully made, full of emotion. I can never get sick of it! It's just so touching and deep.

This song is so touching and beautiful and knowing the story behind it makes it even better.

This song reminds me of a girl I grew up with. She started chasing me around the playground when we were in third grade. By middle school we were inseparable. In high school we fell in love. Then the summer after we graduated she was killed in a car accident. Night Ranger's "Seven Wishes" album was released four years after she died. Even now, some 30 years after I lost her, I still cry every time I hear "Goodbye."

Brings back the memory of a lost love
Something that could of been great today, had I listened to her 35 years ago
