about

I Don't Say Goodbye was written in the memory of Maggie Lewis, a kind, beautiful, hilarious friend who left way too soon. All donations for downloads go to www.fatcatrescue.org

Maggie spent a lot of her life caring for sick kittycats. Just another way her spark is missed every day.

lyrics

I Don't Say Goodbye

Somebody tell me the answer please
Why she has to go
Doesn't seem to be a point in
Leaving such a hole

All of us here today
We're just her diplomats
To an old appointment cut way too short
What's the sense in that

So we bid adieu
To all her countless ways
And all the funny things she always said
And how she spent her days
I would have given her more
Than she would ever ask
That's neither nor there
It's all in the past

Somebody tell me the answer please
Why she has to go
Doesn't seem to be a point in
Leaving such a hole

All of us here today
We're just her diplomats
To an old appointment cut way too short
What's the sense in that

I'm going to use quantum physics
Where molecules exist twice
To explain to you why I'm impolite

I don't say Goodbye.

Somebody tell me please
What's the point in that?
Doesn't seem to be a point to
Leave a hole like that

All of us here today
We're very impolite
Tell your new appointment they can wait all night
We don't say Goodbye.
