"Say Goodbye" as written by Reinhold E. Heil and Johnny Klimek....
She said "Don't leave this up to me to say that I don't love you anyway"
Just leave it up to me to say goodbye
Because these good times will never last
Keep a handle on the wheel and a foot on the gas
We thought it would last forever
I wish you'd just remember

No
Will anything change your mind?
(She said)
A one way ticket was a pretty good sign
(And I said)
Well how can you leave it all?
(And she said)
There ain't much to leave behind
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye

Next time I'll take it slow
And as for you I'll never know
At least next time I'll try to understand
So please don't leave this up to me to say that you don't love me anyway
I'll just leave it up to you to say goodbye
'Cause these good times will never last
Keep a handle on the wheel and a foot on the gas
We thought it would last forever
In case you don't remember

No
Will anything change your mind?
(She said)
A one way ticket was a pretty good sign
(And I said)
Well how can you leave it all?
(And she said)
There ain't much to leave behind
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye

Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye
Just say goodbye

Well, these good times will never last
Keep a handle on the wheel and your foot on the gas
We thought it would last forever
In case you can't remember

No
Will anything change your mind?
(She said)
A one way ticket was a pretty good sign
(And I said)
No
(And she said)
No
(And I said)
No
(And she said)
No

Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Say goodbye

    General CommentFirst and foremost... An awsome tune, as with any Theory song. So if one were going post the lyrics for a song, wouldn't one think that one might check the lyrics insert to ensure the what they're posting makes sense... I don't know about you but I'm not sure of how to keep my handle on the wheel. The logical and published verse is "KEEP A HAND ON THE WHEEL AND A FOOT ON THE GAS" People STOP guessing!!! :P
