A Long Goodbye

Bowness, Bridges, and Blackness_MattysFlicks.jpg

Give it a minute-
give it a moment or two
give it the time it needs to grow

Let it begin to flower-
let it begin to sing-
let it take you on its wing

Cause when the sun goes down-
and when the clouds come around-
we all know this was a long goodbye

Take a deep breath-
take a good look around-
take a long walk down that road

Get up in the morning-
before the break of dawn
go down to the river and feel it flow in

Cause when the sun goes down-
and when the clouds come around-
we all know this was a long goodbye

Give it a minute-
let it begin to sing
Let’s go down to the river-
and take a good look around

Cause when the sun goes down-
and when the clouds come around-
we all know this was a long goodbye
