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
Standing 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

You know I tried my best to go
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

Now there was sun through the blinds this morning
When I opened up my eyes
Outside I could hear a mockingbird
And I could feel your heartbeat as you laid 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

You know I tried my best to go
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

Sometimes the most important words are the ones that you leave unspoken
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
Almost goodbye, no, I couldn't say it was
Almost goodbye, oh oh
Almost goodbye.
