"To Say Goodbye" as written by Jamie Teachenor, Joey Martin and Rory Feek....
He said I'll call you hun when I get there
Ten minutes later he was in the air
She dropped the kids at school and headed home
Walked in and turned the front room TV on
She could tell that there was something wrong
Every channel had the same thing on
Now seven years have come and gone away
But she's still hurtin' like its yesterday

'Cause she wants to put her arms around his neck
And look in his eyes so blue
And say honey I don't regret
A single day I spent with you
She wants to tell him that she loves him so
And will until the day she dies
It ain't that she can't let him go
She just wants to say goodbye

He sits beside her in the nursing home
Through her silver hair he runs a comb
He hangs their wedding picture on the wall
She don't remember who he is at all
He tells her stories bout the life they've lived
From their first kiss to their last grandkids
For seven months now she just sits and stares
But if she wakes up he'll be right there

'Cause he wants to put his arms around her neck
And look in her eyes so blue
And say honey I won't forget
A single day I spent with you
He wants to tell her that he loves her so
And will until the day he dies
It ain't that he can't let her go
He just wants to say goodbye

No it ain't that we can't let 'em go
We just want to say goodbye

    General CommentThis song hits hard, 9-11 hurt more people than can be counted, not just the ones who died as heroes, but their families never got to say goodbye. The second part talks about Alzheimers and that though loved ones are still there in body their mind is gone. Great but very sad song from Joey&Rory <3
