about

i really wanted a rhodes/acoustic piano & lead vocal on the record this time. one of my all time favourite songs is ‘you are so beautiful’ that was written by dennis wilson/billy preston, and bruce fisher that
the great joe cocker cut some years ago & i wanted a similar thing with more jazz type chord changes. real emotional & a pouring your heart out type thing.
i had many people in mind to sing this but glenn (bidmead) convinced me to sing it myself so this is my debut @ singing a lead vocal.
ouch!

lyrics

hard goodbyes.
(bidmead/buchanan)

here we are
you and i
just like a falling star
we had it all
now i don’t where you are
i just know you’re gone

i don’t believe in these hard goodbyes
what does it take to be satisfied?
heartbreak and a string of lies
all alone in this room

city lights
wonderin’ you who you’re dancin’ with tonight
i’ve given up on tryin’ to make it right
i fool myself that i’m ok

love’s always hard to find
and the truth isn’t always kind
but i know that love
is better when it’s gone

i don’t believe in these hard goodbyes
what does it take to be satisfied?
but no matter how i try
let me down easy
goodbye is still goodbye
goodbye…
these hard goodbyes

here we are
you and i
just like a falling star
we had it all
now i don’t where you are
