Goodbye to Love

Karen Carpenter
From "Lovelines"

I'll say goodbye to love
No one ever cared
If I should live or die
Time and time again
The chance for love
Has passed me by
And all I know of love
Is how to live without it
I just can't seem to find it

So I've made my mind up
I must live my life alone
And though it's not the easy way
I guess I've always known

I'd say goodbye to love
There are no tomorrows
For this heart of mine
Surely time will lose
These bitter memories
And I'll find that there is
Someone to believe in
And to live for
Something I could live for

Oh, all the years of useless search
Have finally reached an end
Loneliness and empty days
Will be my only friend
From this day love is forgotten
I'll go on as best I can

What lies in the future
Is a mystery to us all
No one can predict
The wheel of fortune
As it falls
There may come a time
When I will see that I've been wrong
But for now this is my song

And it's goodbye to love

I'll say goodbye to love
