Magical Moment 74, "A Top 10"

I have a top ten song. Well, not billboard top ten, but it's a start. Broadjam is an online music community where over 85,000 artists from all over the world can showcase their music, enter contests, and network. My song, "How I Say Goodbye" came in top 10 this week for the Folk/Alternative category.

I admit, I was a little surprised as the recording is not that great. I've been meaning to re-record the vocals (they sound a little flat to me) and acoustic guitar. Never the less, there it is. Take a look at the website and listen to the song (on the broadjam website, or just scroll down below). I hope you enjoy it.

“How I Say Goodbye” words and music by Elizabeth Grimes Copyright 2009
Verse 1:
You don’t know. You can’t tell.
You think everything’s just goin swell.
But secretly in my mind
A common theme’s beginning to unwind.
When you’re feelings get too strong to ignore
That’s when it gets a little too close for comfort.
Then I’m gone. You won’t know why.
It’s just how I say goodbye.

This is how I say goodbye. This is your cue to let me go.
I don’t give you a reason why. I just expect you to know
That just when thing’s are going great means thanks for all the good times.
No one’s ever made me stay. And this is how I say goodbye.

Verse 2:
Sure I feel bad. You’re a good man.
But I can’t make you understand
I’m not the sweet girl you thought you found.
I may like you but I’ve just go to get out.
Love ‘em and leave ‘em. Not sure why.
It’s just how I say goodbye.

So take care of you. Thanks for bein good to me.
I don’t know what to say. Some birds are just free.
