Roy Harper - Goodbye Lyrics

  • Your conscience rolls in torrents down each side of your face.
  • Your chair is full of silence, your hand is full of lace.
  • You say that you should have been by him when the bullets
  • Laid his head.
  • Strange it's always the living who fear the idea of the dead.
  • Goodbye.
  • I'll take my leave of all of you as you sit and wonder why.
  • And you who stood around us and said that we were great.
  • Until your instant riches made us second rate.
  • Well you're the same old hangman who rationalizes hope.
  • Whose left hand pats my children and whose right hand holds a case full of rope.
  • He wears the sweeping landscape in the crystal of his eye.
  • And he jumps into the rain pools as the people pass him by.
  • He rubs the dusty ages across his tender brow.
  • He laughs and cries and sniffs and sighs. It's four long summers now.
  • Goodbye.
  • I made my peace with all of you as you sat and wondered why.
  • She walks the clover meadows in the dandelion days.
  • She throws her golden shadows across the silver haze.
  • She wanders with the swallows in the noonday passion plays.
  • She sits beneath the willow and she waits for me and twilight to come our ways.
  • Goodbye.
  • We made our peace with all the world as you sat and wondered why.
