I know they say if you love somebody
You should set them free
But it sure is hard to do
It sure is hard to do
I know they say if you don't come back again
Then it's meant to be (so they say)
Those words don't pull me through
'Cause I'm still in love with you
I spend each day here waiting for a miracle
But it's just you and me goin' through the mill
Climbin' up a hill

[Chorus]
This is the long goodbye
Somebody tell me why
Two lovers in love can't make it
Just what kinda love keeps breaking a heart
No matter how hard I try
I always make you cry
Come on, baby, it's over let's face it
All that's happening here is a long goodbye

Sometimes I ask my heart did we really
Give our love a chance (just one more chance)
But I know without a doubt
We turned it inside out
And if we walked away
Would it make more sense
But it tears me up inside
Just to think we still could try
How long must we keep running on a carousel
Goin' 'round and 'round and never getting anywhere
On a wing and prayer

[Chorus]

Long goodbye
Long goodbye
