Spring is around the corner, and Spring Fever will soon be hitting many couples. After being cooped up all winter with cold and rain, couples everywhere are getting tired of one another. But John King’s latest single ‘Try Saying Goodbye’ is a song you need to hear before making the decision to part ways.
Take it from me. I’ve been through plenty of break ups, even divorce. But when it’s a real love — a forever love — at least take a second to REALLY think about that departure.
The second verse of this song hits home really hard for me. See, my fiancee and I, we have a really great story. One that takes us from a weird first meeting to far apart and then back to one another. Since we’ve been together, there have been some incredibly trying times. Times when I’ve resorted to staying out at bars all night long just to avoid coming home and dealing with the issue at hand.
Yeah, you got the girl and she stole your heart/
And now you’re on a stool shootin’ Ninety Proof/
But you ain’t done nothin’ that you can’t undo/
It ain’t too late.”
And I know it can be kinda hard to swallow your pride/
You thought “sorry” was the hardest word/
You are ever gonna have to say to her in your whole life/
Try sayin’ goodbye/
Try sayin’ goodbye.”
