We thought that love was over, That we were really through, I said I didn't love her, That we'd begin anew And you can all believe me, We sure intended to, But we just couldn't say goodbye. The chair and then the sofa, They broke right down and cried, The curtains started wavin' For me to come inside. I tell you confidentially, The tears were hard to hide, And we just couldn't say goodbye. The clock was striking twelve o'clock It smiled on us below, With folded hands it seemed to say, "We'll miss you if you go." So I went back and kissed her, And when I looked around, The room was singin' love songs, And dancing up and down. And now we're both so happy, Because at last we've found. That we just couldn't say goodbye.
