If You Never Say Goodbye
P.M. Dawn Lyrics


Legs of a cat
Head of a man
Eyes on the camera
Shaking everyone's hand

Vultures circle
And smack their lips
The sky goes black
As the lightning rips
Stars are new
Born without pity
As waves of blood
Roll over the city

It's not a rehearsal
Or special effects
It's the end of a story
It's what happens next

If I say, and I say
It's coming in a second
If I say, and I say
In the blink of an eye
And I say, and I say
With a bang and a whimper
And I say it's OK
If you never say goodbye

Son of a child
Son of a beast
As it slouchers and slithers
It's way from east

I dreamt a dream
But what can it mean
Angels and more
Devoured the queen

All the people danced
And tore at their clothes
The sky caught fire
And the oceans froze

It wasn't a fable
It wasn't a hoax
The servants and the devil
Keep making up jokes

And I say, and I say
It's coming in a second
And I say, and I say
In the blink of an eye
And I say, and I say
With a bang and a whimper
And I say it's OK
If you never say goodbye

I saw a chapel
Lain of God
The light was so blue
And the air was so cold

It sounded high
On a microphone
As the rats kept rhythm
On a chicken bone

People wept
And swallowed their jewels
Entered like soldiers
Departed as fools

It isn't a sentence
It's not a reward
It's a black parachute
With a noose for a cord

And I say, and I say
It's coming in a second
And I say, and I say
In the blink of an eye
And I say, and I say
With a bang and a whimper
And I say it's OK
If you never say goodbye

And I say it's OK
If you never say goodbye
And I say it's OK
If you never say goodbye
And I say it's OK
If you never say goodbye

[Verse 1]
Legs of a God, head of a man
Eyes on the camera, shaking everyone's hands
Vultures circle and smack their lips
The sky goes black as the lightening rips
The stars are new moon without pity
As waves of blood roll over the city
It's not a rehearsal or special effects
It's the end of a story, it's what happens next

[Chorus]
If I say it's coming any second
If I say, and I say in the blink of an eye
And I say if I beg and I whimper
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye

[Verse 2]
Son of a child, song of a beast
As it slouches and slithers, it's waiting for the feast
I dreamt a dream, but what can it mean?
Angels in love devoured the queen
All the people danced tore at their clothes
The sky was a fire and the oceans froze
It wasn't a fable, it wasn't a hoax
The seventeen devils speaking of jokes

[Chorus]
If I say it's coming any second
If I say, and I say in the blink of an eye
And I say if I beg and I whimper
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye

[Verse 3]
I saw a chapel lain of God
The light was so blue and the air was so cold
Sounds of home on a microphone
As the last kept rhythm of chicken bone

People wept and swallowed their jewels
Enter like soldiers, departing as fools
It isn't incentive, it's not a reward
It's a black parachute with a noose for a cord

[Chorus]
If I say it's coming any second
If I say, and I say in the blink of an eye
And I say if I beg and I whimper
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye

[Outro]
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye
And I say it's okay if you never say goodbye

Legs of a calf, the head of a man
Eyes on a camera shaking everyone's hand
Vultures circle, and smack their lips
The sky goes black as the lightning rips
The stars are mute, the moon without pity
As waves of blood rolled over the city
It's not a rehearsal, or special effects
It's the end of the story, it's what happens next

And I say (and I say)
It's coming any second
And I say, and I say
In the blink of an eye
And I say (and I say)
With a bang and a whimper
And I say it's okay
If you never say goodbye

Son of a child, son of a beast
as it slouches and slithers
Its way from the feast
I dreamt a dream, but what could it mean
Angels in love devour the Queen
All the people danced, tore at their clothes
The sky grew fire, and the oceans froze
It wasn't a fable; it wasn't a hoax
It was seventeen devils speaking of jokes

And I say (and I say)
It's coming any second
And I say, and I say
In the blink of an eye
And I say (and I say)
With a bang and a whimper
And I say it's okay
If you never say goodbye

I saw a chapel made of gold
The light was so blue and the air was so cold
Terrible sound on a microphone
As the rats kept rhythm on chicken bones

People wept, swallowed their jewels
Entered like soldiers, departing as fools
It isn't a sentence, it's not a reward
It's a black parachute with a noose for a cord

And I say (and I say)
It's coming any second
And I say, and I say
In the blink of an eye
And I say (and I say)
With a bang and a whimper
And I say it's okay
If you never say goodbye

And I say it's okay
If you never say goodbye

And I say it's okay
If you never say goodbye

And I say it's okay
If you never say goodbye

And I say it's okay
If you never say goodbye

And I say it's okay

I never knew he was the writer! LOVE this song.

minidiva46

This is just about my favorite song of all time!!! I still get chills everytime I hear it...even almost 20 years later!!! You have created a wonderful tribute!!!

Chris Melvin

This is an old favorite of mine. It seems to be about 'Judgement Day' but then again his father died as a child so it could be he's speaking to his father 'and I say it's okay if you never say goodbye'. There are many interpretations of the lyrics because they're rather hard to hear-but they actually have the correct lyrics on their website.
