Streisand, Barbra - I'll Never Say Goodbye Lyrics




Say goodbye
Why? I can barely say good night
If I can hardly take my eyes from yours
How far can I go?

Walk away
The thought would never cross my mind
I couldn't turn my back on spring or fall
Your smile, least of all

When I say always, I mean forever
I trust tomorrow as much as today
I'm not afraid to say I love you
And I promise you I'll never say goodbye

We're dancers on a crowded floor
While other dancers live from song to song
Our music goes on, on and on
And if I never leave your arms
I really will have traveled ev'rywhere
For my world is there

When I say always I mean forever
I trust tomorrow as much as today
I'm not afraid to say I love you
And I promise you I'll never say goodbye

How could I ever say goodbye?

Streisand, Barbra I'll Never Say Goodbye Comments
  1. Yanchik Bikanchik

    Say goodbye
    Why, I can barely say good night
    If I can hardly take my eyes from yours
    How far can I go?
    Walk away
    The thought would never cross my mind
    I couldn't turn my back on spring or fall
    Your smile, least of all
    When I say always
    I mean forever
    I trust tomorrow as much as today
    I'm not afraid to say I love you
    And I promise you, I'll never say
    Goodbye
    We're dancers on a crowded floor
    While other dancers live from song to song
    Our music goes on
    On and on
    And if I never leave your arms
    I really will have traveled ev'rywhere
    For my world is there
    When I say always
    I mean forever
    I trust tomorrow as much as today
    I'm not afraid to say I love you
    And I promise you, I'll never say
    Goodbye
    If I can barely say good night
    How could I ever say goodbye

    Its beautiful song n the voice behind it makes it remarkable, so instrumental... I promise babe

  6. Steve Lozano

    A marvelous beautiful rendition! Some of the best vocals I have ever heard!!

  7. Cliff Shell

    First, the movie is one of my all-time favorite late 70's films, hands down. Streisand is terrific in finding small nuances in distancing herself from the original interpretation of Manchester and others.

  8. singasong718

    One of my favorite late Streisand recordings.

  9. Luciano Lombardi

    One of my favorite songs, ever. Marvelous Barbra's interpretation.
    I have watched the movie just waiting for this song. ♪

  10. Steven Greer

    I love this song. I love Barbra.

    Steven Beausoleil

    Steven Greer hi

  11. Kenneth Hamlett

    This is a wonderful interpretation of an unforgettable song. When the film was released, the song received an Oscar nomination, but critics dismissed it as overly sentimental and too openly emotional. Unfortunately, in their eagerness to appear hip and edgy, most music critics dismiss songs with romantic themes or songs that include honest expressions of sentiment, while they write glowing reviews of obscure, eccentric music that appeals only to various niche audiences. They have convinced themselves that lyrics which celebrate emotion cannot have real merit,just as they rush to conclude that popular success automatically diminishes a song's artistic quality. Of course, that is nonsense. But, generation after generation we seem to be burdened with critics of that type. But, in the end, how much does it matter? Let them write their endless tributes to songs that are tuneless or under-produced or performed by artists who seem always to be suffering some sort of dental discomfort. It apparently fulfills some need they have to celebrate music that the public rejects and admire singers who miss as many notes as they hit. I'll continue to seek out beautiful melodies with lyrics that capture human feelings and elevate human experiences performed by artists who can demonstrate with the performance of a single song -- as here -- that they understand more about music and quality than combined knowledge of all the critics in the world.

    Kenneth Hamlett well articulated

    Beautifully said! I feel exactly the same way.

    LA Music Lover

    Still, no one sings this better than the original, done by Melissa Manchester. She performed this live on the Oscars with her other nominated song "Through the Eyes of Love", but Barbra is a big fan of Melissa. She had her sing "Just One Lifetime" at her wedding.

    Richard Bosworth

    So eloquently put! We need more thoughts like this that are perspicacious in nature. BRAVO! It made my day.

  12. Tamara Nair
