The last release for the Dance Music for Sad People collection. You Just Can't Let It Go is my favorite way I've ever ended something. It just sounds...sad, I guess.

Anyway, thanks again for another great release.

Track Name: To The Core
Youth dies for ageless reasons
Velvet skies through shameless seasons
And my reasons derive from my will to survive
I am not done as far as I've come
Track Name: The Goodbye Lullaby
I've become so lazy
She lied now she's crazy
I made amends with her
She flew away like a bird
In the night sneaking away
Trying to make it another day

Whisper to her in the night
Tell her softly it will be alright
She says, "Baby, don't lie."
And she starts to cry
And I sigh
Baby goodbye

Never wanted to be the fool
Never wanted you to be so cruel
I can only see so far
I never know where you are anymore
'Cause you're sneaking away
Trying to lose another day

This is the last time that I'll see you
Just can't take what you put me through
She starts to cry
And so do I
And she sighs
Baby goodbye
Baby goodbye
Baby goodbye
