Never Got the Chance (to Say Goodbye)

Night after night, I lie alone here in my bed
Right, it wasn't right, that we left so much unsaid
It hurt me so when you let me know
That your love was just a lie
Then you turned and walked away
Haven't seen you since that day
And I never got the chance to say goodbye

Time after time, I play it all back in my mind
Crime, it's such a crime, how you just left me behind
Without telling me why it had to be
No, you didn't even try
You just turned and walked away
Though I wanted you to stay
'Cause I never got the chance to say goodbye

If we'd said goodbye I could carry on
I could feel deep down that it was over and done
Why'd you leave me living with a broken heart
When your words had gone and torn my world apart

You, after you, there'll be a better way for me
New, I'm starting new, and now the game is up to me
If I leave someone, say I'm moving on
Better bet that I'll say why
Won't just turn and walk away
And no one will ever say
Hey, I never got the chance to say goodbye

Never got the chance to say goodbye, oh no,
To say goodbye
Say goodbye
