From the album The Hill

Lyrics

He Puts all his things into the suitcase, and walks downstairs to his car.
Fills up his trunk with half of his life, and walks upstairs to her door.
But he's got nothing to tell her tonight Thought if he waited the words they would come. Now He's driving away without tears in his eyes. It's not that hard. I guess it's not that hard to say goodbye.
He pulls out 'the driveway into the street, and drops that gas to the floor.
But he'd never noticed how lonely it could be at three in the morning before.
Now he's got nothing to show for his life. Thought if he waited direction would come. Now he's driving away without tears in his eyes. It's not that hard. I guess it's not that hard to say goodbye.
But sometimes late at night I lay awake and think about the miles of friends along the road I simply drove away and left behind. It's hard enough in retrospect but easy at the time. I guess a part of me can't sleep because goodbye is always easier without sayin' the words aloud.
I put all her things into the suitcase and walk downstairs to her car. Fill up her trunk with so much of me I'm not sure if I'm here anymore.
I've got nothing to show for this life. Thought if I waited direction would come. Now I'm driving in circles for years at a time. It's not that hard. I guess it's not that hard to say goodbye.
But sometimes late at night I lay awake and think about the miles of friends along the road I simply drove away and left behind. It's hard enough in retrospect but easy at the time. I guess a part of me can't sleep because goodbye is always easier without sayin' the words aloud.
