Say Hello Wave Goodbye
David Gray Lyrics


Standin' in the door of the Pink Flamingo cryin' in the rain
It was a kind of so-so love
And I'm gonna make sure it doesn't happen again
You and I had to be the standing joke of the year
You were a run-around, a lost and found and not for me, I feel

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
And take a look in my face for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

We tried to make it work
You in a cocktail skirt and me in a suit but it just wasn't me
You're used to wearing less
And now your life's a mess, so insecure you see
Well I put up with all the scenes
And this is one scene that's going to be played my way

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
And take a look in my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello, goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

Under the deep red light I can see the make up slidin' down
Well hey little girl you will always make up
So take off that unbecoming frown
As for me, well I'll find someone who's not goin' cheap in the sales
A nice little housewife
Who'll give me a steady life and not keep going off the rails

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
And take a look in my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello, goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello, wave goodbye
Goodbye

Say goodbye
Say goodbye

We were born before the waves
Who are we to understand?
We were born before the waves
Say goodbye

Through the rain, hail, sleet and snow
Say goodbye
Get on the train, train, train
And say goodbye

Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

In the wind and the rain now, darling
Say goodbye
In the wind and the rain now, darling
