Words and Lyrics and Love













Believe Imagine Dream




Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye

Leonard Cohen

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but now it's come to distances and both of us must try,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.
I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time,
walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
you know my love goes with you as your love stays with me,
it's just the way it changes, like the shoreline and the sea,
but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.
I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm,
your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm,
yes many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.

Macky

Next to my folks, the longest relationship
of love I've ever known.
43 years
We became friends my junior year in HS
She introduced me to Leonard.
For that alone I owe her a
lifetime of steadfast loyalty.

The kindest soul I've ever known.
Chances are we will never again meet,
it's already been 17 years....but no matter.
My love goes with her 
as her love stays with me.
It just is.

Poignant, loved it. My BF "divorced" me some years ago, and this resonated. Reminded me how much I have missed her in my life these past years.
