Thunderhead – Life Is Only A Goodbye lyrics

See the man sittin' at the corner
He looks at life and he knows he's lost
He thinks of times when he wasn't a loner
Of times and people, people that he knew from his past
Wanders on trough the streets in the city
A place he used to know
People laugh, not ashamed of his pity
But time grows like his pain and his sorrow

We know he's old, but how long will he last
He never thought, that life would ever
Ever pass him by so fast

Sometimes it feels like life's a goodbye
Lookin' in from the outside
You never turn around, you've got to hide
Life is only a goodbye

Father's home, he looks into the mirror
Spits at his reflection
Hears a voice saying "You're a sinner"
And he feels that he can't take the rejection no more
Family's home, feeling safe and peaceful
Don't hear the footsteps in the night
T. V. Plays, while father shoots to kill 'em
When they asked him why, he said that life's a goodbye

We know he's sick, and we know he won't last
He never thought that life would ever
Ever pass him by so fast

Sometimes it feels like life's a goodbye
Lookin' in from the outside
You never turn around, you've got to hide
Life is only a goodbye

He never thought, that life would ever
Ever pass him by so fast

Sometimes it feels like life's a goodbye
Lookin' in from the outside
You never turn around, you've got to hide
Life is only a goodbye
Sometimes it feels like life's a goodbye
Lookin' in from the outside
You never turn around, you've got to hide
Life is only a goodbye

[repeat]
