The Long Goodbye

281246_feather.png
12-String electrics and reoccurring orchestrated melodies lay a sonic foundation for Wayne Hussey’s unmistakable voice, lyrically painting a picture of regret and second guessing one’s self.
“ I Only need you now, now that you’re not here anymore …”

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

MICHAEL CIRAVOLO

"The Long Goodbye" is one of the songs on this album I am most proud of, musically and Wayne's lyrics meld perfectly.  We are also working on a piano-based version of this song;complete with an orchestra, which will appear on our follow up release "Beauty Re-Envisioned".

WAYNE HUSSEY

A dream collaboration for me.  Wayne has always been one of my favorite singers, lyricists and guitarists!  ‘God’s Own Medicine’, ‘Children’ and ‘Carved In Sand’ are desert island listens for me.

Getting Wayne and Simon on a song together for the first time is certainly surreal.
