I never could admit when I was wrong, man
Even when I felt it in my bones
I always thought it meant I was a strong man
I wondered why I was alone

That's when she stepped out of the ether
Right when I was ready for a dance
She said, "I don't know what I am doin' either.
But I know when to take a chance."

I never knew how to be scared
Till I found somethin' I knew I couldn't lose
And then the revelation trembled
From the tip of my own tongue

Like the last few boys at the Alamo
Like Cusack holdin' that stereo
What Juliet hears from Romeo:
"I'm never gonna say goodbye"

There's not a way to someone's heart that she can't see
She lives and loves with everything she's got
My dark days showed me how to ask, "Why me?"
She's shown me how to ask, "Why not?"

She keeps a hopeful eye upon the future
She finds a way to share that hope with me
And the few times that she's met some sort of failure
She wins a little back by laughin' at defeat

I never knew what life could be
So it stands to reason why I can't go back
And now a revelation trembles
From the bottom of my heart

And like a stock exchange for the billionaires
Like a convert singin' his morning prayers
From the scientist to the polar bears:
"I'm never gonna say goodbye"

Like the last few boys at the Alamo
Like Cusack holdin' up that stereo
What Juliet hears from Romeo:
"I'm never gonna say
"Don't make me say
"I'm never gonna say goodbye"
