NO WAY TO SAY GOODBYE Words and Music by Pete Strayer Copyright 2014 I found you standing by the stairway, it was 1 a.m. You couldn’t take another day. So many memories have put us in this place we’re in. I’ve got to try to make you stay. ‘Cause there is no way to say goodbye. We’ve got to find a reason. ‘Cause my heart will not lie. Way back when love had tied a line between our wounded hearts, We didn’t know the games we’d play. But now there’s one last move, we need to finish what we started. ‘Cause things can’t ever be the same.
