How long


How long
till I hear the word goodbye
How long
have I been in this place

Iíve met so many faces
And Iíve learned so many things
And these memories I have in my head
will be there till the end

Oh tell me how long
Till I hear the word goodbye
How long will it be
till I hear the word goodbye

I fear the day when I hear the word
coming from your mouth
I fear the day when I see
you for the last time
I remember the day we were
talking about what Iím singing

and how long
till I hear the word goodbye
How long will it be
till I hear the word goodbye

Now I know that day
has come along
And we sit here
for the last time
Just remembering all the songs
and talking about

How long
till I hear the word goodbye
How long will it be
till I hear the word goodbye

I remember all the friends we made
I remember all the times
the times we have laughed
and the times we have cried
the road is pulling away from me
with more memories up ahead

the times that we spent
just talking about our lives
the times we spent expressing
what was inside
the times we spent
looking up to the sky
the times we spent
just you and I
the times we spent
just looking out to the sea
Now weíre both wondering
what the future holds
for you and me
and I keep wondering
why I asked

How long
till I hear the word goodbye
How long will it be
till I hear the word goodbye

Now I see the road ahead of me
But Iím not forgetting
about my past
I want to see
all the things I want to see
And I can be more
than I am right now
We both have so much more
to see in this world
our memories like building blocks
are leaving this road
where you and me stand
now wondering which way to go
in all our talks and songs
we never planned on seeing it alone
no, we never planned on seeing it alone

And so now I think

How long it has been
since I heard the word goodbye
How long
I was in this place
