Manhatten Skyline Lyrics

by A-Ha

We sit and watch umbrellas fly
I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry
I hear myself say, "My boat's leaving now"
So we shake hands and cry

Now I must wave goodbye
Wave goodbye, wave goodbye
Wave goodbye, wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

You know, I don't want to cry again
Don't want to cry again
I don't want to say goodbye
Don't want to cry again

I don't want to run away
I don't want to race this pain
I'll never see your face again

Oh but how, how can you say that I didn't try?
You see things in the depths of my eyes
That my love's run dry, no

I leave to their goodbyes
I've come to depend on the look in their eyes
My blood's sweet for pain
The wind and the rain brings back words of a song

And they say, "Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye, wave goodbye
Wave goodbye, wave goodbye
Wave goodbye"

You know, I don't want to fall again
I don't want to know this pain
I don't want another friend
I don't want to cry again

I don't want to see you hurt
Don't let me see you hurt
I don't want to cry again
I'll never see your face again

How can you say that I didn't try? You know I did
You see things in the depths of my eyes, my love's run dry
I don't want to cry again

So I read to myself
A chance of a lifetime to see new horizons
On the front page a block
And white picture of Manhattan skyline
