Mark Chesnutt – Almost Goodbye Lyrics

There was rain on the street last night
We stood beneath the front door light
And everything we said, we made sure the neighbors heard
You called me this, I called you that
Standin’ on the welcome mat
Everything we felt, it all came down to just one word
But you couldn’t say it and I couldn’t say it
[Chorus]
You know I tried my best to go and
I know you cried ‘cause I hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
Almost goodbye
[Verse 2]
Now there was sun through the blinds this mornin’
When I opened up my eyes
And outside I could hear a mockingbird
I could feel your heartbeat
As you lay there by my side
I thought of how the world could end with just one word
But you didn’t say it and I didn’t say it
[Chorus]
You know I tried my best to go and
I know you cried ‘cause I hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love that way was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
It was almost goodbye
[Bridge]
Sometimes the most important words
Are the ones that you leave unspoken
[Chorus]
You know I tried my best to go and
I know you cried ‘cause I hurt you so
It should have been easy to say that we were through
But to walk away from love that was was more than we could do
It was almost goodbye
Almost goodbye
No, I couldn’t say it
It was almost goodbye
Oh oh
Almost goodbye
