lyrics

Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh
Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh 
Ba-da-oh


Saw you laughing
Now it’s true
No more hiding
From what I already knew
Like swallows fly
And summer passes
I must get used to
Living without you

Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh
Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh 
Ba-da-oh



This farewell...
How can it end?

Same old places
Same old sounds
All the reminders
Of a life we never found
That ship has slipped
Over the horizon
It was never anything but
Homeward bound

Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh

And I can’t go
And I can’t stay
I’ll see you
With stoop and a cane
You can forget
If you choose 

Even though we have
So much to lose

When you kissed me
In a drunk embrace
There’s no doubting
The love in your face
And though fires in winter
Can’t replace the sun
We are now
Written into this place

Ba-da-ee-aah 
Ba-da-oh
Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh Ba-da-oh


This farewell
How can it end 

Cos I will always
Be your friend

Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh
Ba-da-ee-ah 
Ba-da-oh Ba-da-oh
