lyrics

goodbye, my love, there's a chill in the air
the boxes are packed and stacked up the stairs
I'm sorry the lights are turned down so low
but still there are troubles the shadows don't know
the restless haunts that lay siege to my head
reciting those words till I break or I'm dead

goodbye, my love, it's been too many years
of running and lying and fighting and tears

goodbye, my love, the leaves turn today
the path 'neath my boots is still hard and grey
and the cars passing by, and the blast of their horns
and a headache that cuts through my scalp just like thorns
I won't remember all the bottles I broke
or even every ugly word that I spoke

except goodbye, my love, now there's no going back
once the painted edges have all turned to black

goodbye, my love, there's nothing to miss
but a soft gentle touch and the warmth of a kiss
now a bitter taste from all the dust in the air
and I spit out the grit and I shake out my hair
and I cry out loud for all time that I lost
I want the sores on my feet to measure the cost

of goodbye, my love, I'll join their ranks and roam
with the wounded sinners stumbling home

goodbye, my love, oh! it sounded so brave
and I'll carry those words in my heart to my grave
no, I didn't think twice when you begged me to stay
but I never once thought it could end up this way
instead of fixing the glass, I picked up the stones
now the shaking has spread from my fist to my bones

goodbye, my love, I never said it so well --
it's always the simple things that put me through hell
