"Goodbye" as written by and Darius/felber Rucker....
I chew my fingers to the bone
It makes me wonder why I try.
I just stopped to say hello
But it ended up as a goodbye.

You said, "Just stay with me tonight."
"Stay with me" -but you never got it right.

And it hurts sometimes
When my pride gives way to jealousy.
So it sucks sometimes
'Cause it's just the way I am.
To accept my faults
Is the only way I can stay with you.
Well it looks like my faults aren't compatible.
So I don't want to talk
Because you're not listening to me.

I chew my fingers to the bone
It makes me wonder why I try.
But all the nights I spent alone
It makes me wonder why I don't try.


And the things that make me happy
Are the things that make you sad.
And the life that I've been dreaming
Is the dream you've never had.
So don't say goodbye to me
I'll say goodbye to you.
