The sound of goodbye    (video)

 

    D - G - A - D (2x)

 

      D

1. We kissed goodnight and we turn out the light,

                 G                                  A

    and we lay side by side in the dark,

                       G                                 A

    and we're waiting for sleep or a spark.

                  D                                         A                    D

    But the night's on the run and the spark does not come,

                     G                        A

    and we quietly worry and wonder,

                   G                                 A

    and the silence is louder than thunder,

                G                    A                   D     - G - A - D

    and it rings with the sound of goodbye.

 

    D                      G                  A

It rings with the sound of goodbye,

    D              G                  A

I can't even tell you just why.

      D               G              A          D

It may be the truth or it may be a lie,

           G                      A                    D

but it sounds like the sound of goodbye.

                  D

2. We can talk of the weather, we can talk of the news,

                 G                               A

    we can talk of the talk of the town,

                    G                                A

    there's another true love going down.

                  D                               A              D

    We can talk about promises, talk about lies,

                      G                                 A

    but there's no use in pointing our fingers.

                   G                                       A

    And the sound of our ‘love you' still lingers.

              G                     A                   D     - G - A -D

    but it rings with the sound of goodbye

 

 

 

 

 

 

    D                      G                  A

It rings with the sound of goodbye,

    D              G                  A

I can't even tell you just why.

      D               G              A          D

It may be the truth or it may be a lie,

           G                      A                    D

but it sounds like the sound of goodbye.

 

+  D - G - A - D

 

     F#m

+  Time is forever, but love is a fire

            B7                                 E

    and one day is one degree colder,

                    G

    and the clock's tickin' over your shoulder.

              Em                                 A

    And it ticks and it ticks, and it ticks and it ticks...

 

+  CHORUS

 

   G                    A

Sound of goodbye,

    D              G                  A

I can't even tell you just why.

      D               G              A          D

It may be the truth or it may be a lie,

           G                      A                    D

but it sounds like the sound of goodbye.

 

+  repeat last CHORUS
