You don’t have to say goodbye
Just leave this mole with a firm blink
You don’t have to tell me why
All these why’s are sweetly sinking
You know I will bear the time
By playing guitar on empty stations
I keep telling myself

Life will be beautiful
Life will be beautiful, without you

You don’t have to say goodbye
Just walk away from this dead end road
You don’t have to tell a lie
I know damn well when it’s time to throw
Just take your past and leave what’s mine
Your smile will never grow older
I keep telling myself

Life will be beautiful
Life will be beautiful, without you

There’s a ride on the salt flats, the light so bright, the flamingo rules
The ride I never did
There’s a scenic flight around Kakadu, the nature baby lives there to
A flight I never did
There’s a burning man, somewhere in the sand, he plays with altruistic friends
A man I’ve never met
I keep telling myself

Life will be beautiful
Life will be beautiful
Life will be beautiful
Life will be beautiful, without you

Two bagels for the dog, I need him to forgive me
A few tears in his fur, a long pathetic sniff
Yeah I’m alone but still dancing in the hallway
Dancing with the shadow of my muse
You know I dance with you in all our ballrooms
You know I dance with you on our clouds
You know I dance with you till the last day
You know I dance with you…..through a lane of tears
