Goodbye
Recorded December 1991 and released as the 10th track (3rd disc) on the album Crystal Ball (January 29, 1998). Written by Prince.

 
Last night when I left U fast asleeping
I should've contemplated suicide
4 the smile upon ur face that's well worth keeping
By morning smears 4 every tear U cry
I could manage a week or 2 without those kisses
It'd b hard but something tells me I could try

4 that matter, whatever 2 make U reconsider
Is there truth when U make love 2 a lie?
Excuse me but is this really goodbye?

Why'd I ever let U n this morning?
Why'd I let U come inside my door?
I should've known without that smile adorning...
Ur face - a kiss was not what U came 4
That's when ur hand reached out 2 touch me gently
At least that's how it happened n my mind

4 that matter, whatever 2 make U reconsider
Is there truth when U make love 2 a lie?
Excuse me but is this really goodbye?

U can't begin 2 understand how I think about U
Everything I wanna do, I cannot do without U
However wrong U want, I'll b
Just please don't leave
If it means this life without U, baby
I swear I'll spend it on my knees
Excuse me but is this really goodbye?

Last night when I left U I was so sure
We'd b 2gether 4ever and 4 days
And now my shade of blue couldn't get no bluer
I don't even know what I did 2 make U go away
I could possibly stage a front and play the cool 1
Heart n my hand tryin' 2 hold back every cry
But who would applaud me
When it's U, my 1 and only
Who 4ever gave me a good reason not 2 die
Excuse me but is this really goodbye?
Excuse me but is this really goodbye?
Excuse me but is this really goodbye?
Goodbye {repeat}
