"Goodbye" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
And now that it's all over
The birds can nest again
I'll only snow when the sun comes out
I'll shine only when it starts to rain

And if you want a drink
Just squeeze my hand
And wine will flow into the land
And feed my lambs

For I am a mirror
I can reflect the moon
I will write songs for you
I'll be your silver spoon

I'm sorry I took your time
I am the poem that doesn't rhyme
Just turn back a page
I'll waste away, I'll waste away
I'll waste away, I'll waste away
I'll waste away, I'll waste away

    General CommentA hauntingly beautiful ending to an impressive album (although as a teenager in the early seventies I didn't much care for Razor Face, Holiday Inn or All the Nasties). I'm surprised that this song hasn't attracted more comments. My interpretation is that he's just signing off at the end of the album, but then I'm not great at interpreting songs so I may have mmissed the point completely!
