Split Enz – Bon Voyage lyrics

Please don't forget me, bon voyage
I remember days of summer in your arms
Lonely and weary, bon voyage
All too brief an introduction to love's charms
And all that I give you, is brighter than the stars above
And it makes no difference what was said, we were in love

Bon Voyage, lady fare thee well
It's impossible to say when I'll see you
But you never can tell
Bon voyage, bon voyage

We were connected, side by side
It was only for a few years, but what a ride
Both of us crazy, but we came
To a secret understanding all the same

And all that I wish you
Is brighter than the stars above
And it makes no difference what people think
When we're in love

Bon voyage, lady guillotine
I was glad to lose my head
But I didn't expect to lose my heart as well
Bon voyage, bon voyage.

... Bon Voyage... Bon Voyage...

['... I prefer "AU REVOIR"... ' - Death, "Mort" by Terry Pratchett]
