I think I missed my cue
in the seismic gap between us.
The drama is widening it all the while.
There is a rawness in your eyes
burning ashes fill the sky.
The midnight train is passing by
is this my cue to cry?
A night so long and you move on
and I never say goodbye.

…and I can’t remember, if we said goodbye.
from “Goodbye” by Steve Earl (also covered by Emmylou Harris)
Oh wow I don’t know that song but have always admired Emmylou Harris! I need to check out her music more! Hope to and Patsy are safe and weel!
Sad song. One line says, “..was I off somewhere, or maybe just high? But I can’t remember, if we said goodbye.”
Also Steve Earl…don’t know his stuff…
