12. Overnight Success:
2. Sure Felt Like Goodbye

Well I guess if I'm honest, it has been a little while
Since she gave me one of her carefree smiles
Not the one that you see in the pictures
But the one she saved for me
That said here in this moment you're all I hoped you'd be

Still tonight when she said she needed a little time
Lettin' go for good never did cross my mind

'Til the goodbye kiss that lingered a little too long
'Til the tear in her eye made me say, "Baby, tell me what's wrong"
'Til she drove away and never looked me in the eye
I'm not sure, but that sure felt like goodbye

No she didn't come out and say it, but I don't think she'll be back
She left outta here like a woman whose bags were packed
And I shoulda seen this comin', no I shouldn't be so surprised
She's a child of the highway and the wide open skies

No one man ever held her heart completely
What was I thinkin', thinkin' it might be me

'Til the goodbye kiss that lingered a little too long
'Til the tear in her eye made me say, "Baby, tell me what's wrong"
'Til she drove away and never looked me in the eye
I'm not sure, but that sure felt like goodbye
Sure felt like goodbye

Maybe I'm readin' this wrong
She sure didn't leave me much to go on

Just a goodbye kiss that lingered a little too long
Just a tear in her eye when I said, "Baby, tell me what's wrong"
Then she drove away and never looked me in the eye
I'm not sure, but that sure felt like goodbye
