Hand out the window
Floating on air
Just a flip of the wrist and I'm waving you goodbye

Drive past the lifeguard stand
Where I sit around
Waiting for you to remember

As I drive...

How the girls
Can turn to ghosts before your eyes
And the very dreams that led to them
Are keeping them from dying
And how the grace with which she walked into your life
Will stay with you in your steps
Pace with you a while

For so long, so long x2

The speaker in this door is blown
So nothing sounds quite right

Taking my time taking this drive
Waving this town, goodbye

And I drive this ocean road
And remember

The small of your back,
Nape of your neck

I remember everything
As I drive, I'm waving this town goodbye

How the girls
Can turn to ghosts before your eyes
And the very dreams that led to them
Are keeping them from dying
And how the grace with which she walked into your life
Will stay you in your steps
And pace with you a while
So long, so long

(Interlude of da da dum…)

And I will leave under the cover
Of summer's kiss upon the sky
Like the stone face of your lover
Just before she says goodbye

I was certain that the season
Could be held between my arms
But just as summer's hold is fleeting
I was here but now I'm gone (so long, so long)
I'm gone (so long, so long)

I'm gone, I'm gone x5 ( so long, so long...)

(interlude of da da dum…)
