All this talk of your sweet girlfriend
Is startin' to pay off
And the charms that she got from travel
Are startin' to wear off

And I heard that you smiled tonight
Watching the last of your friends arrive
You smile and shake their hands

And the hero that you hoped you'd be
Never seemed to show up
And if I can keep on talking
There won't be time to give up

And I heard that I drive tonight
Into the last of the great sunrises
I smile and wave my hand, as goodbye

Things don't work out by the way
Planned it's almost half past two
And I've begun to hate
The way you smile so slowly

And I heard that you close your eyes
And balk at the pain of a thousand wives
And I heard that you died tonight
Just close your eyes and it goes away

Smile I'll get you
And when you wake you're had
Goodbye
