The Last Goodbye

Written By :David Jane

I hate the way I say

I’m better on my own

Meanwhile I’m still practicing


The smiles I’ve never known

 

 

And you were like a remedy

To save me from the dead

’Til you played me like a melody

Stuck inside my head

I’ve been trying to get over you

But I have been misled

By all those things you said

 

 

Skies falling, I’m calling

Promising a lie

Worlds of plastic collapsing

Right before my eyes

I’ve nothing left to say

Still trying to deny

What seems outlandish – how can this

Be the last goodbye?

 

 

And I still wear that last goodbye

Like layman’s wear the cross

Cuz the memories could never be

A crutch for what I lost

 

 

So I revel in the revelry

A devil in disguise

When it’s quarter past eleven

And I’m levelling the tides

With a new one in the covers

And I’m using them to hide

From the hurt I keep inside


 

 

Skies falling, I’m calling

Promising a lie

Worlds of plastic collapsing

Right before my eyes

I’ve nothing left to say

Still trying to deny

What seems outlandish – how can this

Be the last goodbye?

 

 

So sorry if I made things weird

I was trying to be polite

Pardon me, it’s hard enough

Just trying to be alright

 

 

Skies falling, I’m calling

Promising a lie

Worlds of plastic collapsing

Right before my eyes

I’ve nothing left to say

Still trying to deny

What seems outlandish – how can this

Be the last goodbye?
