It's hard to be cruel to someone kind
And I still haven't made up my mind about you
It's just that I have no more to say
Keep lining up empty phrases
As an excuse for breathing

A long goodbye
It's all confusion and lies
Why can't we make it short
A long goodbye
It's all manners and style
Maybe we'll never say goodbye

Communication's breaking down
You turn away so I can't hear you
Memories melting to a stain
Who's gonna tell our story?
Gone in the flashback ashes

A long goodbye
It's all confusion and lies
Why can't we make it short
A long goodbye
It's all manners and style
Maybe we'll always stay

We plan our anniversary
I play the game of happiness and harmony
And honesty has no part in it
Funny how you don't seem to notice it

A long goodbye
It's all confusion and lies
Why can't we make it short and sweet
It's all manners and style
Maybe we'll never say goodbye
