Tom Sparks: Music

I'm The Guy

(performed by Tom Sparks)
written by Cat Welch & Tom Sparks
I'm the guy who said goodbye, you don't hear much from me,
I'm the one that left our place wanting to be free.
I'm the man who refused your hand as you begged me not to leave,
Yes, I'm the guy who said goodbye, you don't hear much from me.

I blew into the house that night like the winds of a hurricane,
Letting in the cold night air, saying I wouldn't be staying.
I should have seen the warning signs, but I didn't even try,
Guess I had it all my way, so long my love, goodbye.

I'm the guy who said goodbye, you don't hear much from me,
I'm the one that left our place wanting to be free.
I'm that man who refused your hand as you begged me not to leave,
Yes, I'm the guy who said goodbye, you don't hear much from me.

Now I eat my supper all alone by motel desk lamp light,
I've gone too far away from home if I can't hold you tonight.
Nothing we had could be as bad as us this far apart,
I read the paper and I pass the time tending my broken heart.

I'm the guy who said goodbye, you don't hear much from me,
I'm the one that left our place wanting to be free.
I'm that man who refused your hand as you begged me not to leave,
Yes, I'm the guy who said goodbye, you don't hear much from me.
