about

Recorded using one microphone and a Mac Mini at his Dublin, Ireland apartment in 2006.

lyrics

I never thought this day would come
When the sky has separated from the sun
And the trees cry out their saddest melody
And this long goodbye has me driven to my knees

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cursed and blood stained
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face the pain

I've long since lost my way back home
And the scattered leaves hide the footpath to my soul
As the lonely waves are mourning for the sea
I will try my best to find what lies beneath

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cursed and blood stained
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face this

I'm afraid to turn to the Bible because I'm liable to be cast in the flames
I'm afraid to look in the mirror
It would make things clear and I'd have to face this long goodbye
This long goodbye

This long goodbye
I know that it's over now but I can stop trying
This long goodbye
Making things clear now and I'll have to face this long goodbye

I know I'm a sinner for of doubt and ashamed
Long goodbye
Making things clear now and I'll have to face this long goodbye
This long goodbye
