about

This song was sparked on a bus to Montreal. I was leaving for Quito, Ecuador, leaving my family and friends flying halfway across the world for the first time and as the bus left and my Dad was waving goodbye, it's a feeling that just hit me and it inspired me to write this song on that trip.

lyrics

Goodbye
These shoes have notched many miles to their name
Carried me over fields through rain
Now I can’t tell you’re eyes from the stars in the sky
Or the feeling that haunts me as I...

Say Goodbye
The feeling as I say Goodbye Goodbye
The feeling as I say Goodbye

If a dream is a memory then what now to believe
As the distance grows smaller between the shores of the years
Now I can’t tell time from the stars in the sky
Or the feeling that haunts me as I...

Say Goodbye
The feeling as I say Goodbye Goodbye
The feeling as I say Goodbye

Now as the days slip away
A painting has awoken
Some days you feel the rain
But those days slowly slip away...

So fly like an eagle now fly through the sky
And carry on your wing your dreams and desires
But don’t be deceived by the stars in the sky
Or the feeling that haunts you as I...
