Manhatten Skyline - Lyrics by A Ha


Lyrics
We sit and watch umbrellas fly
I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry.I hear myself say: My boat's leaving nowso we shake hands and cry.
Now I must wave good-byewave good-byewave good-bye
Wave good-byewave good-byewave good-bye.
You know: I don't want to cry again
I don't want to cry again
I don't want to say good-bye
I don't want to cry again
I don't want to run away
I don't want to race this pain
I'll never see your face again.
Ohbut howhow can you say that I didn't try?
You see things in the depths of my eyesthat my love's run dryno!I leave to their good-byes
I've come to depend on the look in their eyes.
My blood's sweet for painthe wind and the rain bring back words ot a song.
And they say: Wave good-byewave good-byewave good-bye
Wave good-byewave good-byewove good-bye.
You know: I don't want to fall again
I don't want to know this pain
I don't want another friend
I don't want to cry again
I don't want to see you hurtdon't let me see you hurt
I don't want to cry again
I'll never see your face again.
How can you say that I didn't try? You know I did!
You see things in the depths of my eyes that my love's run dry.I don't want to cry again!
So I read to myselfa chance of a lifetime to see new horizons.
