We sit and watch umbrellas fly
I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry
I hear myself say, my boat's leaving now
So we shake hands and cry
Now I must wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

You know
I don't want to cry again
I don't want to cry again
I don't want to say goodbye
I don't want to cry again
I don't want to run away
I don't want to raise this pain
I'll never see your face again

Oh, but how
How can you say that I didn't try
You see things in the depths of my eyes
That my love's run dry, no

We leave to their goodbyes
I've come to depend on the look in their eyes
My blood's sweet for pain
The wind and the rain brings back words of a song
And they say wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

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 try again
I never want to see you hurt
Don'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 myself
A chance of a lifetime to see new horizons
On the front page
A black and white picture of Manhattan skyline
