"Last Goodbye"

Folder: 
Rex Songs' Remixes

by Jeph Johnson

 

I said goodbye that morning
It was the last thing I would say
You left me without warning
In your dark brown Chevrolet

 

Goodbye were not the only
Words I wanted to see
Emerging from your lonely
Lips, speaking your legacy

 

And tonight this night
Might rain more tears
Than I have ever cried
Falling like a shower
From my steel blue eyes

 

The last goodbye
I let go of your hand
A wave goodbye is something
Hard to understand

 

Your last goodbye
Came so suddenly
Leaving me with memories of you
A lonely memory of you

 

I loved you that morning
But "goodbye" is all I sighed
It's a different kind of mourning
When the love you had has died

 

A foggy rural highway
Intersection held your fate
Our last goodbye
You lost your life
He couldn't find his brake

 

And tonight the night
Might rain more tears
Than I have ever cried
Falling every hour
From my steel blue eyes

 

The last goodbye
I let go of your hand
A wave goodbye is something
I can't understand

 

Our last goodbye
Throwing ashes in the sea
You are more to me
Than just a memory

 

(solo)

 

The last goodbye I wondered
And still can't understand
How you climbed up high to Heaven
And I fell to earth a man

 

And tonight this night
Might rain more tears
Than I have ever cried

 

And I know this night
And tears I cry
That weep down
From my steel blue eyes
Remember days your words to me
Weren't just goodbye
Or just a memory

 

Until my final day
Through steel blue eyes
It's hard to see
The last goodbye

"A Whisper Away"

Folder: 
Rex Songs' Remixes

by Jeph Johnson

 

it took just a whisper
to awaken dreams of you
a soft, gentle whisper
from your lips made them come true
I'd open my eyes
to the sunrise in your stare
hovering above me
outlined by your blonde hair
the more love your eyes reflected back
the less I knew to say
finally we connected
but love was still a whisper away

 

with just the whisper of my name
I became a better man
your words sparked a flame
of warmth and understanding
emerald tears would flood your eyes
while I kissed your ruby fingertips
and gold sparkled in your hair
as you gently touched my lips
the more treasures I protected
the less I knew to save
finally we connected
but love was still a whisper away

 

it seemed just a moment
yet was filled with forever
now all that I recall
is that we were together
the more that I recollect
the less I know today
finally we connected
but love was still a whisper away
