I Never Said Goodbye
I Never Said Goodbye

Pass the feed mill on the highway
As I rumble into town
It always feels like Sunday
When I come back around
And the beer joint’s down on main street
They still holler out my name
But I’m no longer welcome
Since they drove me half insane

And nothing really changes
And no one really leaves
But nothing ever grows here
And yes it’s really me
I know it’s been a long time
But I finally changed my life
If it’s no imposition
Can I sit with you tonight

I saw the old man at the newsstand
And he asked me where I’d been
Said he’s really getting busy
Since they put the golf course in
I reminded him it opened
Back in nineteen eight-two
Your smile it still haunts me
And I’m really missing you

And nothing really changes
And no one really leaves
But nothing ever grows here
And yes it’s really me
I know it’s been a long time
But I finally changed my life
If it’s no imposition
Can I sit with you tonight

They put a stop sign down on third street
You can’t see it for the trees
And I really missed your perfume
And the way you looked at me
I’m so sorry for my manner
Must be something in my eye
Reading works upon the granite
And I never said goodbye

And nothing really changes
And no one really leaves
But nothing ever grows here
And yes it’s really me
I know it’s been a long time
But I finally changed my life
If it’s no imposition
Can I sit with you tonight
