The Goodbye Look

THE GOODBYE LOOK - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Nobody can ever say we didn’t try it out
We gave it our best shot
That’s what life’s about
And nothing comes so plain
As emotions when they’re dry
You fall in love again
Just to watch it die

It’s like clinging to yesterday
When there’s nothing left to rest our hat on

And our conversation’s light
Why am I not surprised?
It happens every time
When wings fail to fly
Why am I so surprised?
It happens all the time
And it’s then that I begin to realize
You have a different appetite
A brand new look that I just can’t describe

What am I not surprised?
You have the goodbye look in your eyes

We walked a beaten path to everyplace we knew
Talking works it out
But not when it is really through
And nothing’s working right
Everything’s a mess
We fight to just remember
We fight to just forget

It’s like holding onto yesterday
When there’s never a shoulder to rely on

And our conversation’s light
Why am I not surprised?
It happens every time
When wings fail to fly
Why am I so surprised?
It happens all the time
And it’s then that I begin to realize
You have a different appetite
A brand new look that I just can’t describe

What am I not surprised?
You have the goodbye look in your eyes

No tender touch could ever make it true
It only comes down to us
Just to me and you

No verbalized exchange
Can ever make it better
Can ever make it right

Nobody can ever say we didn’t try it out
We gave it our best shot
That’s what life’s about

It’s like letting go of your own hand
When the fall itself is enough to kill you

And our conversation’s light
Why am I not surprised?
It happens every time
When wings fail to fly
Why am I so surprised?
It happens all the time
And it’s then that I begin to realize
You have a different appetite
A brand new look that I just can’t describe

What am I not surprised?
You have the goodbye look in your eyes

I pretend that I’m surprised
That you have the goodbye look in your eyes
