Captain Tractor – 1000 Goodbyes lyrics

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
Refrain (x2)
So goodbye
And goodbye
Yeah goodbye
