Say goodbye to the old street that never cared much for you anyway
And different colored doorways, you thought would let you in one day
Goodbye to the old bus stop frozen and waiting
Weekend addition has this town way over-rated

Walk across the baseball green, the grass has turned to straw
A flock of birds tries to fly away from where you are
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye old friend, I can't make you stay
I can't spend another ten years wishing you would anyway

How the sky turns to fire against the telephone wire
And even I'm getting tired with useless desires

Everyday I take a bitter pill, it gets me on my way
For the little aches and pains, the ones I have from day to day
To help me think a little less about the things I miss
To help me not to wonder how I ended up like this

Walk down to the railroad track and ride a rusty train
With a million other faces I shoot through the city veins
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye old friends, you wanted to be free
And somewhere beyond the bitter end is where I wanna be

How the sky turns to fire against the telephone wire
And even I'm gettin' tired of useless desires

Say goodbye to the old building that never tried to know your name
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye old friends, you won't be seeing me again
Goodbye to all the window panes shining in the sun
Like diamonds on a winter day, goodbye, goodbye to everyone

How the sky turns to fire against the telephone wire
Burns the last of the day down and I'm the last one hanging around
Waiting on a train track and the train never comes back
And even I'm getting tired of useless desires
