Goodbye Catherine

Written by: Dylan Irvin

I was the briar and she was the rose
But winter came and our love froze
The more that we tried, the more we died
Well she didn’t wanna’ feel all cooped up anymore
So she packed up her stuff and walked out the door
She got in her convertible and headed to the east coast
She wanted to see the world and make more of the most
A year later, I talked to her on the telephone
She told me she was engaged to a good man from Madrid
That she loved him and it was the best thing she ever did
But it was hard leaving me abruptly on my own
So I held back my sadness and said this to the phone:
Even though I've been feelin' crappy, I'm so glad that you’re happy
I guess our love was never meant to be, on that I guess we can agree
When tears begin to fall and it’s hard to take it all in
Just remember his love and where you have been
When the waves are strong and you’re lost in the ocean
Don’t get all sad and blue, remember that he loves you
When November dies and December does too
I’ll still be right here thinking of you
When tears begin to fall and it’s hard to take it all in
Just remember our love and where we have been
Wipe your eyes and pick up your chin, I’m  always here to listen
When it’s hard to take it all in and your tears start fallin’
Baby I’m always here to support your callin’
Wipe your eyes and pick up your chin
I’m here for you and I always have been
Goodbye my dear, sweet Catherine…
