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.[audio:http://gdhar.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/Nikhil%20Gupta%20-%20Goodbye.mp3]
On a day so dark when the skyâ€™s so low
I wonder deep if sheâ€™ll ever know
So hereâ€™s to a dream so high and dry
Will I ever know why she didnâ€™t say goodbye
So bring me a glass of red wine
Let me sing to a love that was once mine
But words donâ€™t come no matter how I try
And Iâ€™ll never know why she didnâ€™t say goodbye
Itâ€™s been such a long time
Oh when she sang my loveâ€™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 Iâ€™ll never know why she didnâ€™t say goodbye.

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

Nikhil looks very smart.
Much smarter than I saw him last.
