WEDNESDAY's WORDs: 'The Long Goodbye' ft. WAYNE HUSSEY

THE LONG GOODBYE  

(HUSSEY / CIRAVOLO)

 

Every kiss with you felt like the first

when innocence was just a word 

And not something precious, 

something rare, too raw to lose

 

So was it always built on sand

and with every tide it washed away?

I only need you now

now that you’re not here anymore, anymore

I’m dying every time I think of you

the long goodbye

 

Rain in the morning leaves me blue

Low cloud on the hill obscures my view

I only need you now, 

now that you’re not here anymore, anymore

I’m dying every time I think of you

forevermore, the vow we swore

I’m crying every time I think of you

the long goodbye

 

we can never hold on

to an empty space 

flows like a cathedral

to a holy place

another valentine

written by a another broken heart

 

the breath I hold is not my own

I’m only dust on the wild wind 

swallow the tongue that speaks too many lies

too many lies too many lies

I’m dying every time I think of you

forevermore, the vow we swore

I’m dying every time I think of you

the long goodbye the long goodbye

I’m dying every time I think of you

the long goodbye the long goodbye the long goodbye

I’m dying every time I think of you
