She Didn’t Say Goodbye

Jul 13 2008

I wrote Goodbye back in June 2004 on a lazy summer afternoon while I was on phone with my friend Meena. I think Nikhil originally came up with this tune back in January 2007 last year. Here is a version he recorded today. The intro melody begins with D minor (the saddest chord!), and walks from C, A# to A. Some of the lyrics were left out on purpose and slightly modified by Nikhil to match the music. Enjoy!

Here is the MP3 of the song.

Words:

On a day so dark when the sky’s so low
I wonder deep if she’ll ever know
So here’s to a dream so high and dry
Will I ever know why she didn’t say goodbye

So bring me a glass of red wine
Let me sing to a love that was once mine
But words don’t come no matter how I try
And I’ll never know why she didn’t say goodbye

It’s been such a long time
Oh when she sang my love’s lost chime
But she went away like seasons in the sky
And the birds above lost all their rhymes
But times that I knew seem lost in time
And I’ll never know why she didn’t say goodbye.

Lyrics: Gautam Dhar, Meena | Music & Vocals: Nikhil Gupta

    A song lies sleeping until good music gives it home and a voice presents it to people. Great work Nikhil Babua 😀

    First things first.
    Nikhil looks very smart.
    Much smarter than I saw him last.
    The lyrics and tune compliment each other with their beauty.
    The voice is the icing.
    Keep it up young boys.
    the future world is all yours!!
