THE LONG GOODBYE

THE LONG GOODBYE

EVERYBODY LOOKS THE OTHER WAY

EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO SAY

FOR SUCH A LONG TIME

THEY SAY THAT LOVE’S THE ONLY GUARANTEE

BUT MAYBE LOVE’S REASON IT WOULD BE

FOR SUCH A LONG TIME

AND WE LET IT IN TO LET IT GO

AND THE TRUTH IS EVERYBODY KNOWS

IT’S SUCH A LONG, LONG TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

 

EVERYBODY HAS HIS OWN REALITY

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO MAKE MUCH SENSE TO ME

FOR SUCH A LONG TIME

AND EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IT SHALL NOT STAY

DO I STILL HAVE TO WATCH IT FADE AWAY

FOR SUCH A LONG TIME?

AND WE LET IT IN TO LET IT GO

AND THE TRUTH IS EVERYBODY KNOWS

IT’S SUCH A LONG, LONG TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

 

THERE IS A VISION IN MY MIND OF A PLACE THAT YOU CAN FIND

AND IT IS WONDERFUL AND MARVELOUS AND MERCIFUL AND KIND

“WELL YOU MAY SAY THAT YOU ARE OLDER AND YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE WISE

BUT YOU HAVEN’T SEEN YOUR FUTURE ‘TILL YOU TAKE A LOOK IN SIDE.”

AND LET IT GO

GOD ONLY KNOWS

IT’S SUCH A LONG, LONG TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

 

THERE IS A PLACE TO WHICH YOU’LL GO AND EVERYWHERE ONE YOU WILL KNOW

IT’S A FANTASY A PARODY A TRILOGY A MYSTERY

“YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE OLDER AND YOU SAY THAT YOU ARE WISE

BUT YOU WILL NOT SEE YOUR FUTURE TILL YOU SEE IT THROUGH MY EYES.”

AND LET IT GO

GOD ONLY KNOWS

IT’S SUCH A LONG, LONG TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
