Im singin this song, 'cause its time it was sung
Ive been puttin it off for a while
'Cause its harder by now, and the truth is so clear
That Im cryin when Im seein you smile

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then Ill be gone

And every time that I tried to tell you that wed
Lost the magic we had at the start
I would weep in my heart when I looked in your eyes
And Id search once again for the spark

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then Ill be gone

For you know, that theres somethin callin me, dear
And by morning Im sure to be gone
For Im older than you, and you know oh so well
That our time for the love was this song

So goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then Ill be gone

Now I can see by your eyes, that its time for to go
So Ill leave you cryin in the rain
Though I held in my hand, the key to all joy
Honey, my heart was not born to be tamed

And goodbye, so long, the road calls me, dear
And your tears cannot bind me anymore
And farewell to the girl with the sun in her eyes
Can I kiss you, and then Ill be gone
Can I kiss you, and then Ill be gone
