Part i: the long goodbye

In days gone by, when I was young
I'd go anywhere life could lead me
But now as the clock so slowly ticks by
I have no new horizons to greet me

There's still so much to understand
My journey has come to an end

I am ready to board the train at the station
Drying the tears that I've cried
I am ready to leave for my destination
Ready to leave life behind

Now it's time for the long goodbye
I must leave for the long goodbye

And when I look back on what I've achieved
There are doubts and there's not much to please me
I'm just a man with a lust for life
And needing someone who needs me

There's still so much to understand
My journey has come to an end

I am ready to board the train at the station
Drying the tears that I've cried
I am ready to leave for my destination
Ready to leave life behind

Now it's time for the long goodbye
I must leave for the long goodbye
I must leave for the long goodbye

Part ii: the final curtain falls

My life's been full
My life's been grand
But through it all
I've still remained
A doubtful, wondering man

You gotta take me as I am
And try to comprehend
And calm my restless heart

I lived my life
To its full extent
Now in the winter of my years
I'm so close to the end

Rethinking all I've done
And seeing what I've become
I need to calm my restless heart

Now the final curtain falls
I feel my work is almost done
I leave my legacy to some

The final curtain falls
The final curtain falls

I know I must be strong and leave with grace
Let new generations take my place
The final curtain falls
The curtain falls

Now the final curtain falls
I feel my work is almost done
I leave my legacy to some

The final curtain falls
The final curtain falls

I know I must be strong and leave with grace
Let new generations take my place
The final curtain falls
