Renato Russo – If You See Him, Say Hello lyrics

If you see him, say hello, he might be in Tangier
He left here last early spring, is livin' there, I hear
Say for me that I'm all right though
Things get kind of slow
He might think that I've forgotten him,
Don't tell him it isn't so.
We had a falling-out, like lovers often will
And to think of how he left that night,
It still brings me a chill
And though our separation,
It pierced me to the heart
He still lives inside of me, we've never been apart
If you get close to him, kiss him once for me
I always have respected him
For doing what he did and gettin' free
Oh, whatever makes him happy,
I won't stand in the way
Though the bitter taste still lingers on
From the night I tried to make him stay
I see a lot of people as I make the rounds
And I hear his name here and there
As I go from town to town
And I've never gotten used to it,
I've just learned to turn it off
Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft.
Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past
I know every scene by heart,
They all went by so fast
If he's passin' back this way,
I'm not that hard to find
Tell him he can look me up if he's got the time.
