Goodbye at the End of the World

There are days
When it seems
Being lonely would be better
Than another night with you

But there are ways
To believe
If you tell it long enough
A lie becomes the truth

And we don’t have to talk about it
Why our eyes no longer meet
And we don’t have to talk about it
What this silence means

We can pretend that if the world should end
It’s enough we’d have a hand to hold
A final kiss as we plunge in the abyss
Could make us feel like we’d been whole
But that’s no way to live these days
So I say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

It’s a game
And we both play
Even though we know by now
They’re only empty moves

I’m afraid
To walk away
‘Cause when you’re on your own
There’s always so much more to prove

And we don’t have to talk about it
What we lost along the way
We don’t have to talk about it
What it costs for us to stay

We can pretend that if the world should end
It’s enough we’d have a hand to hold
A final kiss as we plunge in the abyss
Could make us feel like we’d been whole
But that’s no way to live these days
So I say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
