Words and Music by Mike Clifford, Copyright 2004



Well she swore it was the hardest thing

She ever had to say

And although she wasnt really saying it

Her letter told no lies

As I read shed found another heart

To take my place

For the first time I felt The Loneliest Goodbye


The Loneliest Goodbye is one you never get to say

Its a ship lost at sea, a tear in a young boys eye

If you think its hard to say farewell

At least you get the chance to tell

Just how you feel before you say goodbye


Well my buddy had an interview

Up in New York City

And I wished him luck the day before he died

As those towers fell

Somehow I knew he was still inside

On that hardest day, The Loneliest Goodbye


CHORUS and End
