Camel — Long Goodbyes lyrics

Down by the lake
A warm afternoon -
Breezes carry children's balloons.
Once upon a time,
Not long ago,
She lived in a house by the grove.
And she recalls the day,
When she left home...


Long good-byes,
Make me so sad.
I have to leave right now.
And though I hate to go,
I know it's for the better.
Long good-byes,
Make me so sad.
Forgive my leaving now.
You know I'll miss you so
And days we spent together.


Long in the day
Moon on the rise -
She sighs with a smile in her eyes.
In the park,
It's late afterall,
She sits and stares at the wall.
And she recalls the day,
When she left home...


(repeat chorus)
