Lyrics

Don’t you think it’s time to be strangers
If you know that we’ve had enough
Never rot where you’re standing
Skip the pitfalls and the dangers

Just come back and say you're sorry
Let’s move on with a phony smile

Close your eyes if you think you’re dying
Close your mind one final time
Say so long to these faded pictures
Say goodbye to this empty room

Here’s the last note from the wicked
I don’t want to cause you pain
Letters unread burn in the fire
Everything has turned out crooked

I heard you say that I’m a coward
I suppose your guess is as good as mine

Close your eyes if you think you’re dying
Close your mind one final time
Say so long to these faded pictures
Say goodbye to this empty room

You wake and find another city
Never seen from a hotel room
Speak in phony southern accents
Using words just to try to show them

Close your eyes if you think you’re dying
Close your mind one final time
Say so long to these faded pictures
Say goodbye to this empty room

Won’t you say goodbye
