Phil Collins – We Said Hello Goodbye lyrics

[Intro]

[Verse 1]
We said Goodbye to a dear old friend
And we packed our bags and left feeling sad
It's the Only Way
We said Hello as we turned The Key
A new roof over our heads
Gave a smile
It's the Only Way
Only way

[Chorus]
Turn your head
And don't look back
Set your sails for a new Horizon
Don't turn around don't look down
Oh there's life across the tracks
And you know it's really not surprising
It gets better when you get there, oh

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Verse 2]
Well it really don't matter much where you are
Cos home is in your Heart
It's a feeling that you wake with one day
Some people keep running all their Life
And still find they haven't gone too far
They don't see it's the feeling inside,
The feeling inside, oh

[Chorus]
Turn your head and don't look back
Just set your sails for a new Horizon
Don't turn around don't look down
Oh there's life across the tracks
And you know it's really not surprising
It gets better when you get there

[Outro]
We said hello as we turned The Key
A new roof over our heads
Gave a smile, it's the Only Way

    I moved to california, and I absolutely loved it and met the most wonderful people, until one person stole all my finances, and I had no choice but to go crawling back to my mother and grandma with my tail between my legs. Because of my finances haven been stole, as well as my personal information, I had no choice but to leave an apartment that I could no longer pay rent for, and that landlord is coming after me now, and so for these last couple months I've been regretting ever moving out to california, but the lyrics "it's a feeling that you wake with one day" made me remember that right before my finances and personal info was stolen, I had woken up with the warm california sun telling me I was home.
    And now the "some people keep running all their life" part I think is ringing true for me right now. I ran away from california. And I miss it so much, but I have to turn my head and not look back; I have to set my sails for a new horizon and just give a smile, because it's the only way.
