never can say goodbye lyrics – isaac hayes

i never can say goodbye, no, no, no, no, i
i never can say goodbye, no

even though the pain and heartaches
seem to follow me wherever i go
though i tried and tried to hide my feelings
they always seem to show
then you try to say you’re leaving me
and i always have to say no
tell me why is it so

and i never can say goodbye, no, no, no, no, no, i
i never can say goodbye

every time i think i’ve had enough
and started heading for the door
there’s a very strange vibration
piercing me right through the core
it says, turn around, you fool
you know you love her more and more
tell me why is it so, i don’t wanna let you go

i can’t say goodbye, oh i, i never say goodbye
i never can say goodbye – no matter how hard i try

i never can say goodbye, no, no, no, no, no, i
i never can say goodbye

i keep thinking that our problems
soon are gonna all work out
but there’s that same unhappy feeling
there’s that anguish, there’s that doubt
it’s that same old dizzy hang-up
can’t do with you or without
tell me why is it so, i don’t wanna let you go

i never can say goodbye, oh i, i never say goodbye
i never gonna say goodbye – no matter how hard i try
don’t wanna let you go, i can’t say goodbye
i need you, oh yeah
i never gonna say goodbye – no matter how hard i try
you’re my one and only lover, i can’t say goodbye…
