david gray – say hello wave goodbye lyrics


standing at the door of the pink flamingo crying in the rain,
it was a kind of so-so love and i’m gonna make sure it doesn’t happen again,
you and i had to be the standing joke of the year,
you were a run around, a lost and found, and not for me i feel

take your hands off me, hey,
i don’t belong to you, you see,
and take a look in my face, for the last time,
i never knew you, you never knew me,
say h-llo goodbye,
say h-llo and wave goodbye,

we tried to make it work, you in a c-cktail skirt and me in a suit but it just wasn’t me,
you’re used to wearing less, and now your life’s a mess, so insecure you see,
i put up with all the scenes, this is one scene that’s going to be played my way

say h-llo and wave goodbye

under the deep red light i can see the make-up sliding down,
well hey little girl you will always make up so take off that unbecoming frown,
as for me, well i’ll find someone who’s not going cheap in the sales,
a nice little housewife who’ll give me a steady life and not keep going
off the rails,

say h-llo and wave goodbye [repeat]
