Goodbye no. 99

from by Young Legs



i'm tired of spending all this time
getting rid of what i've got
and everything i'm getting now
is sick or made of rot
but don't think that i've given up
i cannot change my mind
i'd have a better chance at turning water into wine

it seems like we have said goodbye
close to a hundred times
and maybe right before we hit that mark
the count will cease to climb
and i can give up everything i want
and do all there is to do
but goodbye number ninety-nine will make its way to you

fold, fold, fold!
fold your hands and kneel
cry, cry, cry!
without a script can you still feel?
hide, hide, hide!
you hide your weakness with your strength
i don't know how you expect to survive
loving at arm's length

something in your binding changed
when i pulled you off the shelf
i had killed the boy you loved
and you nearly killed yourself
and i can't give up anything i need
and there's so much more to do
so goodbye number ninety-nine has made its way to you
