I'll never forget you
I'll never forget you
I'll never forget how we promised that day
To love one another, forever that way
We said we'd never say goodbye

But that was long ago, long ago
Now you've forgotten, I know
No need to wonder why,
Let's say farewell with a sigh
And let love die

But we'll go on living our own way of living

So you take the high road, and I'll take the low
It's time that we parted, it's much better so
Just, kiss me as you go
Goodbye, goodbye

I'll never forget you
Kiss me as you go

    General CommentOh I love this song so much! It seems like her sultry singing rides the waves of the saxophone in the background... anywayz, to me, the song is about the end of a love once so strong. Saying goodbye is often so hard, and while Lizz Wright is acknowledging that fact, she is also acknowledging that their lives will go on.... You can tell she is conflicted, but she knows that it's time to part.... The lyrics make me think that these are two strong people who have tried their best, but weren't able to make it work... and even though it's sad, she is willing to let it go in order for her to move onto something better..... this sort of clarity only comes after the initial heartbreak is over.... I love it....
