i’ve said goodbye

I’ve said goodbye….

When things get settled
I start moving
It’s the time to hit the trail
I take the chance to move along
by truck or car or rail

No ties to where I’m leaving
Where I’m headed
I don’t know
But, when things start feeling settled
I know it’s time for me to go

Friends, not many
Family…nope
Relationships…they don’t exist
I only live on hope
I’m not around one place too long
i know the time to go
I’ve said goodbye so many times
I forgot how to say hello

Images of long ago
A father was not there
He’d leave when we were not around
Off to who knows where

I’ve seen so many broken hearts
I stopped counting at fourteen
I don’t even try to know
The broken hearts I’ve seen

Friends, not many
Family…nope
Relationships…they don’t exist
I only live on hope
I’m not around one place too long
i know the time to go
I’ve said goodbye so many times
I forgot how to say hello

I’m lonely, but I’m not alone
I’m by myself inside my head
I’ve memories of loves I’ve lost
got too close, so then I fled

I don’t want to be a number
Just added to the list
I don’t care to even try to count
The lips I’ve never kissed

Friends, not many
Family…nope
Relationships…they don’t exist
I only live on hope
I’m not around one place too long
i know the time to go
I’ve said goodbye so many times
I forgot how to say hello
I’ve said goodbye so many times
I forgot how to say hello
