Jo Dee Messina Bye Bye Lyrics

Boy you sure look good there standin’ in the doorway in the sunset light
Maybe I read you wrong thinkin’ you could be my Mr. Right
I was puttin’ my heart and soul on the line
Said you needed some time, just a little more time to make up your mind
Well it’s been long enough
Time is up
Bye bye love I’ll catch you later
Got a left foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
I ain’t never lookin’ back and that’s a fact
I’ve tried all I can imagine
I’ve begged and pleaded in true lover’s fashion
I’ve got pride I’m takin’ it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye
Don’t think all those tears are gonna hold me here like they’ve done before
You’ll find what’s left of us in a cloud of dust on highway 4
Baby what did you expect me to do
Just sit around and wait on you
Well I’m through watchin’ you just skate around the truth
And I know it sounds trite
I’ve seen the light
Bye bye love I’ll catch you later
Got a left foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
‘Cause I ain’t never lookin’ back, and that’s a fact
I’ve tried all I can imagine
I’ve begged and pleaded in true lover’s fashion
I’ve got pride I’m takin’ it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye
I’d lost the game I guess
I did my best to win the part
Now I’m leavin’ here with what’s left of my heart
Bye bye, I’ll catch you later
Got a left foot down on my accelerator and the rear view mirror torn off
‘Cause I ain’t never lookin’ back you can count on that
I’ve tried all I can imagine
I’ve begged and pleaded in true lover’s fashion
I’ve got pride I’m takin’ it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye
Bye bye
Oh baby
Oh
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye
