A song I know so well
The music of goodbye again
It's there each time we say hello
As always there's no reason why again
You kiss me with your eyes
And in your arms I fly again
But even as we touch the clouds
There in the quiet is goodbye again
Perhaps the way I hold you
Makes you afraid I'll hold you
Makes you afraid to love me, love me
As through the night we dance
The tender dance of try again
I hear it playing softly and sadly
The music of goodbye

John Barry
Alan & Marilyn Bergman
sung by Al Jarreau, Melissa Manchester
