We Never Said Goodbye

*

Feet striding on pavement cold stride for a man and stride for the old

Cold hands clap and memory’s fade the tombstone drifts in the evening shade

Songs of peace and songs of war don’t mean a thing to me anymore

I know good and I know bad the last is all now since what we had

*

Where have you gone doesn’t anyone know 

Nobody warned me there’s no place to go

Where have you gone I can’t stop the day

We never said goodbye we never had our say.

*

Hunger’s rhythm is hard to do I’m survivin’ it’s beat for no one but you

Strangers pass me by not sayin’ not a word not even a hi

Dylan sings Like a Rolling Stone knowing dreams like these you go alone

I would give my life to see your face one more moment one more embrace

*

Where have you gone doesn’t anyone know 

Nobody warned me there’s no place to go

Where have you gone I can’t stop the day

We never said goodbye we never had our say

*

For you, Dad.
