Half Past Goodbye

Glass of whiskey, and a lit cigarette

The only things you haven't packed up yet

Echoes of yesterday still ringing in my ears

So little to save from so many years

 

Too sad to be angry, too crazy to cry

We've come to the end of life in a lie

So many reasons but we'll never know why

The time is half past goodbye

 

Every heartache left a line upon my face

No room for two in our cold and lonely space

We'll walk through this world with no cares but our own

The lights may be on but we'll never be home

 

Torn in two by forces that we can't defy

Too little too late - too many days gone by

So many reasons yet we'll never know why

The time is half past goodbye

 

Another time, another place

We'd still be standing face to face

A different kind of circumstance

There'd still be half a chance

Oh yes there would baby

 

Too sad to be angry, too crazy to cry

We've come to the end of life in a lie

I'll forget about you the moment I die

But now the time is half past goodbye

The time is half past goodbye
