i don’t want to say good bye lyrics – nana mouskouri

there’s a time an late september
when the leaves begin to fall
and the sh*r* is empty ready to surrender
picket fences seem to linger
as the wind begins to blow
and the traces in the sand are getting slender

i don’t want to say goodbye
like the summer days i’ll miss you
seasons change but we must try
how can i forget i kissed you?

there’s a place that i remember
where we secretly could go
just to whisper magic in the moonlight splendour
there’s a place down by the water
where the birds of summer show
just before they fly away in late september

i don’t want to say goodbye
