One too many goodbyes

 

Lyrics: © Arne Erdmann  2015

Music: Bob Dylan

 

I can see it in your eyes, I can hear it in your voice

I will stay and you will leave, we both have no choice

It seems I am collecting farewells of this kind

I am one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

I will sit a long time watching the space where you have been

reconstructing my mistakes, your beauty and my sin

but then I’ll get exhausted ‚cause truth I will not find

I am one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

Time may tell from a distance that I’m not really bad

just unsteady, too resistant and a little bit too sad

you’ll distinguish my deeds from the pictures in your mind

but you’ll be one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind

 

as my memory is fading and you’re swallowed by the past

remain two things I remember and I know that they will last

how my doubts led into darkness and your smile used to shine

I am one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind
