"Goodbye Girl" as written by and David A. Gates....
All your life you've waited
For love to come and stay
And now that I have found you
I must not slip away
I know its hard believing
The words you heard before
Darling you must trust them please
Trust them just once more

Cause baby goodbye doesn't mean forever
Let me tell you goodbye
Doesn't mean we'll never be together again
If you wake up and I'm not there
I won't be long away oh
And all the things you do my goodbye girl
Will bring me back to you

I know you've been taken
Afraid to hurt again
You find the love you feel for me
Instead of giving in
I can't wait forever oh
Helping you to see
That I was meant for you my love
And you were meant for me

Remember goodbye doesn't mean forever
Let me tell you goodbye
Doesn't mean we'll never be together again
Though we may be so far apart
You still have my heart
So forget your past my goodbye girl
Now your home at last.... at last

Though we maybe so far apart
You still have my heart
So forget your past my goodbye girl
Now your home at last oh
It doesn't mean forever
Goodbye doesn't mean we'll never be together oh

Goodbye doesn't mean forever
We remember goodbye

Goodbye Goodbye girl

    General Commentwonderful song, has helped me deal with the situation I am currently in, she is moving away, we have plans to meet up later in life, just gives me hope that our love will survive the test of time and that we will be together again

    General Commenti think its about a guy who loved a girl but didn't want her until he seen her with someone else, and now regrets having lost and doesn't want to say goodbye to their love.
