Say Goodbye

Album: Music For The Recently Deceased (2006)
  • Storm clouds hanging over head
    Offer not the slightest bit of comfort
    For the first time in days
    I wait to discover
    Disasters that I've slept through
    While I felt so alive

    So we say goodbye
    So we say goodbye
    Heartstrings severed just as quick
    As they were discovered
    So we say goodbye
    So we say goodbye
    I'll break my own fall to keep you picture perfect
    Just don't wake me up now

    so say goodbye
    Close your eyes for the last time
    Questioning everything that went wrong

    the silence she whispers to me
    Telling me things we dare to speak out loud
    The collaboration of the blinding sun
    Through vacant streets hits home hard
    Like a hatchet to the skull
    I'd keep you here if you kept me warm
    And these winters away
    Your hands were the only hands needed to hold me
    For the first time in days
    I feel alive

    in the end we will both rot together
    In the end we rot toegether
    Our love lies in embers

    say goodbye
    Close your eyes for the last time
    Questioning everything that went wrong

    peering out of those same cracked windows
    That I studied for day upon days
    Suddenly collapse
    It all falls down

    say goodbye
    Close your eyes for the last time
    Questioning everything that went wrong
