i love you, goodbye

in cassidy's care > lyrics



So this is how valour turns mindful
Distilled to a cold compromise
What were once hollered hearty and hopeful
Are now whispered words from the wise

Does anyone listen past forty?
When the spaces between us are vast
I keep whispering into the silence
Like some revenant voice from the past

Once my heart ruled my head
But my heart was never in it
I tried to get lucky instead
Russian roulette; I’d surely win it

Thought I was a dragon slayer
But the years they drip you dry
Now I’m just a bit part player
Singing "I love you, goodbye
I love you, goodbye"

So I will retreat to the shadows
From where you’ll not be hearing my voice
And yes I will stay in the shadows,
As if I ever had a choice

Once my heart ruled my head
But my heart was never in it
I tried to get lucky instead
Russian roulette; I’d surely win it

Thought I was a dragon slayer
But the years they drip you dry
Now I’m just a bit part player
Singing "I love you, goodbye
I love you, goodbye"


So much for dignity
So little pain
So much for hope
Are we happy again?
So much for sorrow
So much for joy
You wanted a girl
I wanted a boy
See I liked the vinegar
You favoured the frocks
I watched from the water
While you waved from the rocks
And as we moved from good to bad
I got lazy, you got sad
And said the words we can’t deny
"I love you, goodbye"
