Every Time We Say Goodbye

1944 Cole Porter

Everytime we say goodbye, I die a little
Everytime we say goodbye, I wonder why a little
Why the Gods above me, who must be in the know
Think so little of me, they allow you to go
When you’re near, there’s such an air of spring about it

I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it
There’s no love song finer, but how strange the change from major to
Everytime we say goodbye

(A musical analogy “change from major to minor” the music matches the mood of the lyric)
