Late Goodbye

Album: Signs of Life (2004)
  • In our headlights
    Staring, bleak
    Beer cans
    Deer's eyes

    On the asphalt
    Underneath
    Our crushed plans
    And my lies

    Lonely street signs
    Power lines
    They keep on flashing
    Flashing by

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye
    Such a late goodbye

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye

    Your breath
    Hot upon my cheek
    And we crossed
    That line

    You made me strong
    When I was feeling weak
    And we crossed
    That one time

    Screaming stop signs
    Staring wild eyes
    Keep on flashing
    Flashing by

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye
    Such a late goodbye

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye

    The devil grins from ear to ear when he sees the hand he's dealt us
    Points at your flaming hair and then we're playin' hide and seek

    I can't breathe easy here 'less our trail's gone cold behind us
    'til in the john mirror you stare at yourself grown old and weak

    We keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye
    Such a late goodbye

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye
    Such a late goodbye

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye
    Such a late goodbye

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye
    Such a late goodbye

    And we keep driving into the night
    It's a late goodbye
    Such a late goodbye

    And we keep driving into the night... Writer/s: MARKO SAARESTO, MARKUS KAARLONEN, OLLI TUKIAINEN
