Goodbye

This song is by Melody Gardot and appears on the album The Absence (2012).

Goodnight was just a little word you learned
Somewhere somebody that you burned
Was all too happy with a lie
But love you know you never got it right
I don't know why you say goodnight
You only mean to say goodbye

I know you're quick to show your lover to the door
And you ain't ever been in love before
You're only bound to get it wrong

I know you're just a victim of your circumstance
Of never knowing any real romance
And so we ought to say so long

I know you're only tryin' to ease my mind
But I'm gonna lay it on the line this time
You only need to say goodbye

Now love, you know you never got it right
I don't know why you say goodnight
You only mean to say goodbye

You only mean to say goodbye You only mean to say goodbye
You only mean to say goodbye You only need to say goodbye
