Lyrics
The day recedes.
It slides across some boards.
Had some wings.
Had some dusty tides rollin' across the floor.
What a strange debris left on a foreign shore.
Who knows how it goes to go walkin' out of that door?
Say goodbye, how hard I try.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.

Some air to breathe
There's no one half so sure as a drowning man who knows
He's coming on up for more.
"Gimme worth! Gimme words!"
Well, I heard a man did pray.
I've never known a fear like it, nothing left to say.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.

How can I leave you when you won't go away?

To get caught in the middle,
Neither night neither day well I,
I feel so broke up and it's harder to be sure when the
Whole wide world's slowly rollin' out of that door.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.

How can I leave you when you won't go away?
Am I a mule or a goat?
Or it's my heart that's bound to stay.
Why, I might be the barricuda's nearest next of kin.
Oh man, here it comes.
They say it's comin' on round again.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.
Say goodbye, how hard I try.
