Song Lyrics

 

 

 

Please Say Goodbye (1996)

I don’t know if I can take it anymore
I don’t know if I can cope
I told you I’d hang on your every word
You went and bought me a rope

I told you I’d love you forever
I told you I’d love you for life
I said my heart bleeds when you’re hurting
You went and bought me a knife

Chorus – We’re all hard-pressed
To make some happiness
And all you ever make me
Is cry
But there’s one thing you can say
That’ll make my rainy day
Please
Just say goodbye

I tried to make conversation
You just sat there like a log
I told you I need some companionship
You went and bought me a dog

I tried everything I could think of
To make you my own special girl
You told me you needed more space to roam
Now you can have the rest of the world

(Chorus)

I Do My Drinking Alone (with Bill Frizzell 1994)

You turn an April shower into a driving rain

You turn a cool night’s breeze into a hurricane

I’m tired of your blabber mouth talking

With never anything to say

So don’t wait up mama, I’m walking

I’m going out to play

 

Chorus – I don’t need this situation

I ain’t gonna go back home

I’m tired of degradation

Tonight I’m mine

I’ll do my drinking alone

 

I’ll find a corner bar that serves a wicked drink

Off the beaten up path, where I can hear myself think

Down on some boondock avenue, where lonely hearts don’t care

So don’t go looking in the same old haunts, you won’t find me anywhere

 

(Chorus)

Just because I can’t be found, don’t mean my ass is gone

You’re still my girl forever more – I just need to be alone

 

(Chorus)
