Don’t Say Goodbye Yet 

Let’s talk
My old friend
There’s a certain light
Where the road ends

But don’t say goodbye yet
No don’t say goodbye yet

It goes so quick
It’s already gone
But feeling understood
That’s heaven’s arms
So here’s to the kitchen table
And those noisy stairs
And here’s to music
And any magic
That fills the air

And don’t say goodbye yet

It’s war and peace
All the time
And it’s more than words
That need a rhyme
So many lonely miles
So many nights
But when the lights of home appear 
Mercy on mercy 
What a sight 

So don’t say goodbye yet
No don’t say goodbye yet
