Manhattan Skyline

views 1.846

We sit and watch umbrellas fly
I’m trying to keep my newspaper dry
I hear myself say, “My boat’s leaving now”
So we shake hands and cry
Now I must wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

You know
I don’t want to cry again
Don’t want to cry again
I don’t want to say goodbye
Don’t wanna cry again
I don’t wanna run away
I don’t want to race this pain
I’ll never see your face again

Oh, but how
How can you say
That I didn’t try
You see things in the depths of my eyes
That my love’s run dry
No

We leave to their goodbyes
I’ve come to depend on the look in their eyes
My blood’s sweet for pain
The wind and the rain bring back words of a song
And they say, "Wave goodbye"
Wave goodbye

You know
I don’t want to fall again
I don’t wanna know this pain
I don’t want another friend
I don’t wanna try again
Don’t want to see you hurt
Don’t let me see you hurt
I don’t wanna cry again
I’ll never see your face again

How can you say that I didn’t try?
You know I did
You see things in the depths of my eyes
That my love’s run dry
(I don’t wanna cry again)

So I read to myself
A chance of a lifetime to see new horizons
On the front page
A black and white picture of
Manhattan skyline
