To Say Goodbye

Joey Rory

He said "I'll call you hon when I get there"
Ten minutes later he was in the air
She dropped the kids at school and headed home
Walked in and turned the front room TV on

She could tell that there was something wrong Every channel had the same thing on Now seven years have come and gone away But she's still hurtin' like it's yesterday...
'Cuz she wants to put her arms around his neck, and look in his eyes so blue And say "Honey I don't regret a single day I spent with you" She wants to tell him that she loves him so, and will until the day she dies It ain't that she can't let him go, she just wants to say goodbye
He sits beside her in the nursing home Through her silver hair, he runs a comb
He hangs their wedding picture on the wall She don't remember who he is at all
He tells her stories 'bout the life they've lived From their first kiss to their last grandkids For seven months now she just sits and stares But if she wakes u, he's gonna be right there...
'Cuz he wants to put his arms around her neck, and look in her eyes so blue And say "Honey I won't forget a single day I've spent with you" He wants to tell her that he loves her so, and will until the day he dies It ain't that he can't let her go, he just wants to say goodbye
No, it ain't that we can't let 'em go... we just want to say goodbye
