The Goodbye

by Quiet Dilemma


Why do I always have to be the one to say "Iím sorry"

When all I feel is that I told the truth

The late night arguments

Because of the late nights you come thru the door

The excuses

The abuses

The fact that I just canít take it anymore

The apologies

The forgiveness

Just a momentary solution 

So the truth that I told

Was just a part of the conclusions

This isnít working

You and I both know the facts

Itís taking 500 percent of our time

Just to keep this thing in tact

I will always love you

Thatís one thing I could never deny

But love is not enough

To cover up the lies

Love is whatís kept us together this long

Our children were another reason that kept us bound

But is it healthy for them to see

Us going thru this emotional merry go round

Saying goodbye is hard

The hardest thing I ever had to do

Because there will never be 

Another one quite like you
