U2 - Seconds LyricsIt takes a second to say goodbye,Say goodbye.It takes a second to say goodbye,Say goodbye, say bye bye where are you going to now?Fall, rise and . . . fall, rise and . . .Lightning flashes across the sky,]from east to west you do or die.Like a thief in the night,You see the world by candlelight.Fall, rise and . . . fall, rise and . . .In an apartment on times square,You can assemble them anywhere.Held to ransom, hell to pay,A revolution everyday.U.s.s.r., d.d.r., london, new york, peking.Its the puppets, its the puppets who pull the strings.Say goodbye, say goodbye.It takes a second to say goodbye,Push the button and pull the plug, say goodbye.Fall, rise and . . . fall, rise and . . .Theyre doing the atomic bomb,Do they know where the dance comes from?Yes theyre doing the atomic bomb,They want you to sing along.Say goodbye, say goodbye.
