about

Break-up blues song. I had an idea for a male and female duet about respective perspectives throughout a break up. I wrote a side of the story and Kate Voss wrote a side, both of us pulling from relationships before our own. What became is a wonderful song, and Kate kills it with her vocals.

lyrics

Well I said good bye and she said good luck
good luck don't hurt much, but good bye surely does
good luck doesn't take much, but good bye takes it all
...it takes it all
I said good bye and she said good luck

When he said good bye, I couldn't think of much
He was gonna have a time giving us up
Good luck's what I said, but good bye is what I meant
He said good bye and I said good luck

Lie to me, Try to be strong
Love should not have to be hard
But it is

When she said goodbye, disguised as good luck
I nearly lost my mind, what the heck did she mean by that anyway?
I'm not green in love, I'm black and blue...darling because of you
I said good bye and she said good luck

When he said good bye, I knew it was for good
Now I was gonna have the time to do the things I should
Good luck didn't take much but good bye broke my heart
he said good bye and I said good luck

Lie to me, Try to be strong
Love should not have to be hard
But it is
