"For The Good Times" as written by and Kristoffer Kristofferson....
Don't look so sad
I know it's over
But life goes on
And this old world
Will keep on turning

Let's just be glad
We had some time to spend together
There's no need to watch the bridges
That were burning

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body
Close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops
Blowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me
One more time
For the good times

I'll get along
You'll find another
And I'll be here
If you should find you ever need me
Don't say a word about tomorrow
Or forever
There'll be time enough for sadness
When you leave me

Lay your head upon my pillow
Hold your warm and tender body
Close to mine
Hear the whisper of the rain drops
Blowing soft against the window
And make believe you love me
One more time
For the good times

    General CommentOne of the best breakup songs ever - so much cynicism towards love, quite a bit of passive aggression and sarcasm...Up there with Don't Think Twice It's Alright by Bob Dylan, and Dreams by Fleetwood Mac.

    General CommentKristofferson has got it here, in the best of the songs in the genre with "Touch me in the Morning," "Angel of the Morning" and such. I can still hear my father, with his deep voice and Fifties Sinatra style, singing this song by the yellow piano. The mortality of love is otherwise a sorrow beyond speech, but it is because forever means so much, and is the goal of love in marriage, that this can be such a sorrow. Kristofferson wrote about four songs in this period that could be ranked in our top fifty, but this one is far superior even to "Me and Bobby McGee" and Sunday Mornin Commin Down."
