Long Good-Bye

When I'm gone, promise me this
That you'll never cry, there's no need for sorrow
When I'm far away, I will never forget
How I love you today, and I'll love you tomorrow

And once, before I go....

Give me a smile, and a kiss, and a long good-bye
Just a smile and a kiss and a long good-bye
Every night I will wait 'til the day I die
For your smile and your kiss and your long good-bye

March away. I'm off to a war
That no one can win. It's already over
I'm surprised how little we've learned
When Cain raised his hand, well, then it was over

And once before I go....

Give me a smile and a kiss and a long good-bye
Just a smile and a kiss and a long good-bye
Every night I will wait 'til the day I die
For your smile and your kiss and your long good-bye

And if I die, promise me this
The love that I gave to you, it had to mean something
Promise me, when our baby is born, you'll tell her of me
I had to mean something

And once before I go....

Give me a smile and a kiss and a long good-bye
Just a smile and a kiss and a long good-bye
Every night I will pray 'til the day I die
For your smile and your kiss and your long good-bye
