Goodbye by Alicia Keys

I've not been paying much attention to current pop music for many years now. New singers come and go, new hits stay on top for a while and forgotten forever, unlike some of the legends of the past. Some however have managed to stay on, won Grammys, produced good albums. I just learnt from Wikipedia that Alicia Keys has 11 Grammy Awards, 17 Billboard Music Awards, and three American Music Awards.

Her debut album, "Songs in A Minor" was a worldwide success and received five Grammy Awards in a single night in 2002, a record for female artists, which she shares with Lauryn Hill (1999), Norah Jones (2003), Beyoncé (2004), and Amy Winehouse (2008).

This is one of her songs, Goodbye, from this album.



How do you love someone
That hurts you oh so bad
With intentions good
Was all he ever had

But how do I let go when I've
Loved him for so long and I've
Given him all that I could
Maybe love is a hopeless crime
Giving up what seems your lifetime
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye (find the words to say good bye)
When your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye (find the words to say good bye)

I know now I was naive
Never knew where this would lead
And I'm not trying to take away
From the good man that he is

But how do I let go when I've
Loved him for so long and I've
Given him all that I could
Was it something wrong that we did
Because others infiltrated
What went wrong with something once so good

How do you find the words to say
To say goodbye (find the words to say good bye)
When your heart don't have the heart to say
To say goodbye (find the words to say good bye)

Is this the end (end)are you sure (are you sure)
How should you know when you've never been here before
It's so hard (hard)to just let go (just let go)
When this is the one and only love I've ever known

So, how do you find the words to say ( when it's been so long )
To say goodbye (find the words to say good bye)(to say good bye)
When your heart don't have the heart to say To say goodbye (find the words to say good bye)
