Goodbye

 

 

 

 

(VERSE)

How do you say goodbye old friend

We had a hell of a run,

A couple angles on fire makin' records skip

And I guess it's your turn to give a final speech

You left a trail of fire

Always jumpin’ off the bridge when the shore-break's deep

 

But who's to say just because you lived that way

That you won't meet your maker

Covered in the scars you got along the way

 

(CHORUS)

You gotta wash your soul clean

Keep it smooth like a riverbed stone

Keep your burdens on a string

Your heart wide open

And you’ll never be alone

 

(VERSE)

But back to goodbyes, keep em honest and sweet

If you've been runnin' all your life,

Sheddin' your skin to make both ends meet

Take a deep breath in maybe even take a knee

Don't be afraid to dust the Bible

Just to let him know that your feelin’ the heat

 

Cause love's around, you gotta let it in

And if they rattle your cage

And your blowin out the candles just to light em again

It's never goodbye If it's written in a song

‘Cause every time it's played it takes me back to that place

And the story lives on

 

(CHORUS)

You gotta wash your soul clean

Keep it smooth like a riverbed stone

Keep your burdens on a string

Your heart wide open

And you’ll never be alone

 

And if your wearin’ out the soles of your boots

Trying hard not to sink

You gotta turn on a song

Close your eyes and think of me

 

You gotta wash your soul clean

Keep it smooth like a riverbed stone

Keep your burdens on a string

Your heart wide open

And you’ll never be alone

 

And if your wearin’ out the soles of your boots

Trying hard not to sink

You gotta turn on this song

Close your eyes and think of me

 

(VERSE)

So who's to say goodbyes are for the weak

Just remember one thing

Think for yourself and it will set yourself free
