We sit and watch umbrellas fly
I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry
I hear myself say: "My boat's leaving now"
So we shake hands and cry

Now I must wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

You know
I don't want to cry again
I'll never see your face again
I don't want to cry again

We leave to their goodbyes
I've come to depend on that look in their eyes
My blood's sweet for pain
The wind and the rain brings back words of a song

And they sing wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

You know
I don't want to cry again
I'll never see your face again
I don't want to cry again

So I read to myself
"The chance of a life time to see new horizons"
On the front page
A black and white picture of Manhattan Skyline

    General CommentThis was the last song they performed at their recent performace at Singapore's Mosaic Music Festival. It's a cover of an old A-Ha hit song wat back in 1986. There's something about the harmony in their voices that makes you want to listen to it over and over again.

    General CommentI prefer this to the original. The emotion is conveyed differently...softer, but stronger somehow. It's one of the few songs that makes me cry.
