Written by: Robin Gibb (1969)
It's not the way you say to me, I'll wave goodbye.
It's not the search to try to say the tears you'll cry.
Because I am crying too for the thought of leaving you.
You have to give me a smile as I leave you, treasure.
Do it in style and believe in yourself.
'Cause while I'm away I will stay firm beside you.
And then I will go with the thought that you tried not to break.
You mean heaven to me and when I return to thee
we'll see our own love.
You may not know but I do miss you earnestly.
Of all the moments in our time, there's none like this.
And every day when our lips met, there's none so bliss.
For when I say sweet c'est la vie,
I laugh and leave with tears on me.
You better give me a smile as I leave you, Heather,
Treasure yourself and find time for no else.
For while I'm away I will stay firm beside you.
And then I will leave with the thought that you tried not to cry.
