Goodbye Lyrics

2006 Off-Broadway
I Love You Because the Musical - Goodbye Lyrics

Marcie, Marcie’s mine
And I’m hers and it’s true
She isn’t perfect and that’s fine
But what happens now
To the life I thought I knew?

I had my whole life planned out
There was no surprise to speak of
I knew without a doubt
What life was all about
But now I’m caught because I’m choosing
Between the life I may be loosing
And Marcie who I love

I tried to stay at a course
I think of Marcie and I wander
There’s this pulling, aching force
And I’m certain of the source
At first I did my best to completely destroy it
Now I’m starting to enjoy it

Is this goodbye to knowing my next move
Goodbye to knowing where I stand
This change isn’t small
Do I go back on all
I planned
And say hello to uncertain mornings
Just we can take it from there
But I may regret this choice
Cause I’m reeling
It’s too much to bet
On a whim that I’m feeling
Too much is resting on my saying goodbye

Then there’s Marcie
Who sees who I am
And still has the nerve to care
I know that Marcie, won’t give a damn
If I plan my life out or leave up to chance
Or set up shop on the moon
She’ll love me anyway
So I say

Goodbye to my expectations
Goodbye to everything I know
No rules to obey
So I’ll wake everyday
And I’ll go
We’ll see to who knows what
Who cares as long as Marcie’s by my side
I used to just do what was planned and prepared
I wouldn’t trust chance because I was too scared
But Marcie is my reason know to try
So to who I used to be and the life I thought I wanted
