lyrics

I’m singing this song, It’s time it was sung
I’ve been putting it off for a while
But it’s harder by now
Cause the truth is so clear
That I cry when I’m seeing you smile

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
Farewell to the girl, with the sun in her eyes
I’ll kiss you and then I’ll be gone

Every time that I tried, to tell you that we’d
Lost the magic we had at the start
I would weep my heart
When I look in your eyes
And search once again for the spark

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
Farewell to the girl, with the sun in her eyes
I’ll kiss you and then I’ll be gone

I can see by your eyes, that its time now to go
So I’ll leave to you cry in the rain
Though I held in my hand, the key to all joy
Honey my heart was not born to be tamed

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
Farewell to the girl, with the sun in her eyes
I’ll kiss you and then I’ll be gone

-TOM WAITS
