"First Hello, the Last Goodbye" as written by Cardew Robinson and Roger Whittaker....
They say when you gain a lover
You begin to lose a friend
That the end of the beginning's
The beginning of the end
They say the moment that you're born
Is when you start to die
And the first time that we said hello
Began our last goodbye

We know each summer's coming
Means the winter's waiting there
And gold would not be precious
If we all had gold to spare
You only know how low is low
The first time that you fly
And the first time that we said hello
Began our last goodbye

If I could live forever
It is certain I would never know
Another single second so sublime
At the moment of our meeting
When our hands first touched in greeting
How I wanted to hold back the hands of time

When they begin the overture
They start to end the show
When you think I'll never need you
Then I knew that you would go
The sound of all our laughter
Is now echoed in a sigh
And the first time that we said hello
Began our last goodbye

If I could live forever
It's certain I would never know
Another single second so sublime
At the moment of our meeting
When our hands first touched in greeting
How I wanted to hold back the hands of time, oh yes

When they begin the overture
They start to end the show
When you think I'll never need you
Then I knew that you would go
The sound of all our laughter
Is now echoed in a sigh
And the first time that we said hello
Began our last goodbye
And the first time that we said hello
Began our last goodbye
