Someone Said Goodbye by Enya

4:02 produced by Nicky Ryan lyrics by Roma Ryan

lyrics

Summer. When the day is over there's a heart a little colder; someone said goodbye, but you don't know why. Somewhere there is someone keeping all the tears they have been weeping, someone said goodbye, but you don't know why. Is there a reason why a broken heart begins to cry? Is there a reason you were lost although you don't know why? Give me a reason why you never want to say goodbye. If there's a reason, I don't know why. Always looking for a meaning, all the time you keep believing, but I don't know why you won't say goodbye. Even when the sun is shining you don't see the silver lining, but I don't know why you won't say goodbye. Is there a reason why a broken dream can never fly? Is there a reason you believe and then you close your eyes? Give me a reason why you hide away so much inside. If there's a reason, I don't know why. Is there a reason why a broken heart begins to cry? Is there a reason you were lost although you don't know why? Give me a reason why you never want to say goodbye. If there's a reason I don't know why. I don't know why. I don't know why. I don't know why.
The track has also been released as a remixed promotional version. The remix has the same lyrics and duration as the original. It begins with a modified organ introduction, but the major difference is an additional percussion track with light cymbal, snare drum rim, and kick drum work. There is also a small recorder accompaniment during each chorus. The whole track has much more treble content than the original, increased as much as 10dB from about 5KHz up, and slightly reduced bass.
