Manhattan Skyline

a-ha


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

I 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
