Say Goodbye

      Say Goodbye

Say Goodbye

In a corner block
Exposed to the street
Our bedroom windows lit
Like a lamp in a tree

Our baby slept
Each night for seven years
From cot to single bed
With a smile on his lips

And for that and our friends on the street
For our trestle table banquets with it’s table clothes and tea

We say goodbye to the house
We lived in for seven years
For seven years we lived
Under a golden rainbow

With our fires at night
With our bikes and beers
And all the good times we had
For all of those years

With it’s old tyre swing
And it’s low brick wall
And the treehouse our neighbours built
Out the front for us all

We share our lives in our home by the sea
We watched our boys growing up
As they climbed up the peppermint tree

We say goodbye to the house
We lived in for seven years
For seven years we lived
Under a golden rainbow

In a corner block
Exposed to the street
Our baby slept inside
Like a star on a tree
