Another November afternoon
searching for an elusive and unspeakable tune...
Maybe I gave in to you too soon
and looked for the sun, but
I found your room.
Hanging outside your front door,
looking for the answer to what you swore
was the last phone call I'd ever get before
you fell asleep in the silence
as I read my eyelids once more.

So say that it's not your way,
an outspoken token of my affectation
has lead us to this day.
I'll try to rise up to your eyes,
but the one explanation for your salutation
has translated as goodbye.

Another November night
when I drink to the silence, 'til dawn's early light.
Maybe you would like to try
to crack my smile, to grin and lie?
Choking on the last words that you said,
I pick my battles carefully, and I keep my head
above the waterline beside my bed.
You'll never hear my voice again
because my lungs are dead.

So say that it's not your way,
an outspoken token of my affectation
has lead us to this day.
I'll try to rise up to your eyes,
but the one explanation for your salutation
has translated as goodbye.

Just say goodbye.
