1000 Goodbyes (Captain Tractor)

I've spent all my life just carrying on And for every right thing I've done ten have been wrong It's not that I'm bragging for the sake of a song But life looks much better in perspective And your eyes look at me from near and from far Ten thousand miles and you're still where you are Another brass rail in another old bar I'm better at dreaming than living For every hello there's a thousand good byes And leaving is harder when I look in your eyes You've got to believe me I'm not telling lies That for every hello there's a thousand good byes The years slip away like the spring melts the snow And I'm older and wiser than you'll ever know And if you believe that then it's time I should go 'Cause I'm just as confused and more twisted And things keep on changing for better or worse And rhymes just get harder with every new verse And to say that I love you sounds way too perverse 'Cause I'm getting on that bus in the morning I could give it all to you But I can't control the things that I do And I don't know what to say 'Cause the sun's coming up and I know I can't stay So goodbye And goodbye Yeah goodbye
