It's been so long,
Nice to see you
Won't be long before I come back home
When the plane lands
Will you reach me
Will you call me on the telephone

Tell my son I wish I never yelled at him yesterday
Cause everything's changed
Radar signal seeking you
But finding nothing at all, heyyyyyyy
But they'll hardly call the cavalry
There's something happening, heyyyyyyy
Hey, Goodbye

Goodbye mother
Tell my daughter
Have to leave
Get off the telephone
There's a problem
Sinking feeling
Heroes died and plastic armor on

Tell my son I wish I never yelled at him yesterday
Cause everything's changed
And you, you gave me all you had
I hope someday you will be happy
Without me
Goodbye

Lost in a world that's quickly going bad
You were there so strengthened to the ground
Angels and the demons fight to save the lives
While all the others cry

As for you, you made my life worth living, heyyyyy
I pray one day you will be happy
Without me

Hey, Goodbye
Hey, Goodbye.

    General CommentThis song was written about 9/11. Song is written from the perspective of people on the highjacked planes, who leave messages for their families on the phone before the planes crashed into the WTCs and Pentagon. Quite a great and sad song...
