neither one of us (wants to be the first to say goodbye) lyrics – gladys knight & the pips

it’s sad to think we’re not gonna make it
and it’s gotten to the point where we just can’t fake it
for some ungodly reason we just won’t let it die
i guess neither one of us wants to be the first to say goodbye

i keep wondering, what i’m gonna do without you
and i guess you must be wondering that same thing too
so we go on, go on together living a lie
because neither one of us wants to be the first to say goodbye

everytime i find the nerve
everytime i find the nerve to say i’m leaving
memories, those old memories get in my way
lord knows, it’s only me

oh, he knows it’s me that i’m deceiving
when it comes to saying goodbye
that’s a simple word that i just cannot say

there can be no way, there can be no way
this can have a happy ending, no, no
so we just go on hurting and pretending
and convincing ourselves to give it just one more try

because neither one of us wants to be the first to say
neither one of us wants to be the first to say
neither one of us wants to be the first to say
farewell my love, goodbye

goodbye
