Hi, nice to meet you -
you and I are one in the same.
Goodbye, I can see you -
walk until you're running away.

The moon glows and the sun shows
what you're going to say
You pass through like a jet low
But you linger here all day
So high, I can't reach you.
I'm swinging while you're floating away.
But time can defeat you.
And you could land again in my way.

Your look shows that you don't know
You are in a better way
You are withering away though
So I step in to say
Hi.
Hi.
Hi.


Hi, nice to meet you -
you and I are one in the same.
Goodbye, I can see you -
walk until you're running away.

But you linger here all day
But you linger here all day
But you linger here all day
But you linger here all day

    General CommentHe is basically saying that an amazing person comes into his life then leaves. But its happapend so many times that its basically routine, he is used to not being able to reach the person. Good song, lyrics could be less redundant but the music is amazing.

    General Commenti;ll agree that the lyrics are a little bit redundant, but i'll say this redundance helps make this song simply beautiful. the music is outsanding to say the least. i just got this Cd off the saddle creek website. and i must say its well worth the $11. go out and buy it. its off the self titled. which a good friend told me, "they have their whole life to write their first cd and like 9 months to write their second." so buy this one. download their second :-)

    General CommentYes, and I agree with both of you. The lyrics are redundant, but so is what the song is about. The song is about a redundant situation. Also both the follow up to the s/t record is amazing, and andy lemaster pretty much takes as much time to write each record. And therefore each record is amazing.
