Farewell Song
Janis Joplin
Child, I know, no, you didn't say a word. And I knew, darlin' as I looked into your eyes That my feelings, oh, they'd never been heard. Well, I'm talkin' to you about love, Did you hear me, I said love, Because it's got to be such a long, long, way From denyin', from denyin'. And I say, don't say no, no, no to me no more. And I believed in you all the time, Honey, until I found out, you know, that I was so wrong. Won't you try and build a life with you, Guess I should've known it, I guess I should've known it all along. Oh, oh, oh, oh, let me hold you just once more Babe, I ask you just once more Because it's got to be such a long, long way from cryin' And I been cryin' and I got tears in my eyes. Yeah, but don't you know when you love somebody that's so precious They can never, never, never be had very cheaply No, no, no, no, no, no, no. You're gonna have to pay your dues And sometimes, sometimes I guess you're bound to lose. Hey, but that's the way You're gonna learn, learn, learn to love deeply. Now oh God, I wish I could explain that myself, 'Cause I know that it's my fault, too. It's so easy to hurt you, darling, It's so hard, it's hard not to do. And I know that you showed me a new life And you'll always, you'll always be my friend. Yeah, but I don't think, honey, that I can keep from tryin' And I'll be tryin' and I been cryin' for you, baby, Yes, I have now. Well, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me What would I do without you, child? I'm afraid that I can't say. But I hope, honey, that when you will remember Lord, it'll be, it'll be such a sunny day. Now, now, now, now, good-bye, I'll see you sometime And don't be worried, everything's just fine. Babe, I don't think That I can keep from dyin' And I've been dyin'. I say now every day I die a little bit, babe I say now every day I lose me someone in my heart I've been lonely, lonely, look around baby I said now I can't help myself I can't help myself I gotta find him, gotta, I gotta need him 'Cause I gotta find my man, find my baby 'Cause I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, yeah, gotta Gotta, gotta, gotta, oh my Lord I gotta Help me now now now now Help me, babe, yeah, yeah, yeah, Whoaa ...
