How to say goodbye

How to say goodbye (Words & Music copyright 2016, David Harley)

Took you down to the High Road
Where I’d taken you once before
Kissed you and left you crying
There at the nursery door

From the day our children are born
Until the day we die
We keep on learning to let go
And how to say goodbye

Took you down to the station
Waited with you for a train
A kiss and a wave from the platform
Saw you homeward bound again

From the day our children are born
Until the day we die
We keep on learning to let go
And how to say goodbye

Took you in from the car
Walked you down the aisle
Kissed you goodbye at the reception
Once more you left me, with a smile

From the day our children are born
Until the day we die
We keep on learning to let go
And how to say goodbye

Walk me down to the station
Time that I went home again
Blow me a kiss from the platform to warm
An old man’s heart on the train

From the day our children are born
Until the day we die
We keep on learning to let go
And how to say goodbye

David Harley
