Almost Goodbye

Mark Chesnutt


There was rain on the street last night
We stood beneath the front door light
Everything we said, we made sure the neighbors heard
You called me this, i called you that
Standing on the welcome mat
Everything we felt, it all came down to just one word
But you couldn't say it
And i couldn't say it

You know i tried, my best to go
I know you cried, 'cause i hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
Almost goodbye

Now there was sun through the blinds this morning
When i opened up my eyes
Outside i could hear a mockingbird
I could feel your heartbeat as you lay there by my side
I thought of how the world could end
With just one word
But you couldn't say it
And i didn't say it

You know i tried, my best to go
I know you cried, 'cause i hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
Almost goodbye

Sometimes the most important words
Are the ones that you leave unspoken
