Lately I have had the strangest feeling
With no vivid reason here to find
Yet the thought of losing you
Has been hanging round my mind

Far more frequently you’re wearing perfume
With you say no special place to go
But when I ask will you be coming back soon
You don’t know, never know

Well I’m a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel
My eyes won’t let me hide

Cause they always start to cry
Cause this time could mean
goodbye
Oh, yes, goodbye

Lately I’ve been staring in the mirror
Very slowly picking me apart
Trying to tell myself
I have no reason with your heart (hmmm)
Just the other night while you were sleeping
((Just the other night)
I vaguely heard you whisper someone’s name
(whisper someone’s name)
But when I ask you of the thoughts you’re keeping
You just say nothing’s changed
(ang-ed)

Well I’m a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel
My eyes won’t let me hide

Cause they always start to cry
(Farewell) (yeah-e-ah)
Cause this time could mean
goodbye, goodbye

Well I’m a man of many wishes
Hope my premonition misses
But what I really feel
My eyes won’t let me hide

Cause they always start to cry
(Oh) cause this time could mean
goodbye
Oh-oh, ooooh

Goodbye baby
Goodbye baby
Hmmm, yeah
Goodbye baby

(Goodbye)
Goodbye baby
Goodbye baby
Goodbye my sweet lady baby
Goodbye baby
Goodbye-I-e-I
