Couldn't Say Goodbye - Tom Jones

I watch you as you're sleeping
As I'm standing at the door
I don't want to let you go
But I can't hold on anymore

I just can't find the strength
To say I'm leaving you
It's over now, it's over now
And there's nothing I can do

I couldn't say goodbye
Couldn't stand the pain
Couldn't watch you cry
Knowing that your heart would break

So I let you sleep
Till the morning light
When you wake up and you read the note I write
Telling you that I
I couldn't say goodbye

I'm walking down this rainy street
Thinking you're awake by now
As you read my letter
And the tears fall from your eyes

Just know I tried to make it work
It just wasn't meant to be
I needed you, I needed you
But not the way you needed me

I couldn't say goodbye
Couldn't stand the pain
Couldn't watch you cry
Knowing that your heart would break

So I let you sleep
Till the morning light
When you wake up and you read the note I write
Telling you that I
I couldn't say goodbye

I didn't mean to hurt you
I didn't want to make you cry
It's over now, yes it's over now
I just couldn't say goodbye

I couldn't say goodbye
Couldn't stand the pain
Couldn't watch you cry
Knowing that your heart would break

So I let you sleep
Till the morning light
When you wake up and you read the note I write
Telling you that I
I couldn't say goodbye
