Goodbye, Carmen
And her eyes are like skies about to rain
But there's work to be done, and she does not complain
Her children are so far away
I heard you crying, I heard you praying
Now you must go, and it's so hard to say
Chorus
Goodbye, Carmen
Thank you for staying with us for a while (With your pretty smile)
And someday you'll get home again
Goodbye, Carmen
Hasta manana or who knows when (It all depends)
Goodbye...
We're convinced our intentions are good
But we live in this world often misunderstood
Can you feel it? (Uh-huh)
I can feel it
And no one seems to care much, and it's so hard to say
Chorus
Carmen...careful what you do, be careful what you see, Carmen
We will always be with you
Turn around but she's lost in the sun
There was so much to say, but she's already gone, so
Thank you Carmen, don't be afraid this is not the end,
So rest your head, I hope someday we will meet again.
Goodbye, Carmen
Hasta manana or never again
But you're my friend Carmen
Goodbye...
Fade
