“Goodbye Old Friend” Lyrics (Cover)

Note: this is a cover of the song of the same title by The Devil Makes ThreeTom originally recorded it for an episode of Origin, on YouTube.

Goodbye old…
Goodbye old…

‘Cause I need you; I want you; 
‘Cause I’ve known you from before.
I hate you; I fear you; 
But I hold open the door.
I see you; you see me;
We know what must be done.
So we draw knives, and lock eyes, 
‘Cause it does no good to run.

Goodbye old friend; farewell it seems.
We’ll dance again; in my dreams.
Goodbye old friend; farewell it seems.
We’ll dance again; in my dreams.

So I’ve missed you; you know that’s true,
I’ve retraced every scar.
My head sings, and the steel rings,
We’ve travelled so far.
I’ve chased you, to embrace you,
Like the sun chases the moon,
I’ve burned you, and you’ve burned me, 
But I know I’ll see you soon.

Goodbye old friend; farewell it seems.
We’ll dance again; in my dreams.
Goodbye old friend; farewell it seems.
We’ll dance again; in my dreams.

(Instrumental)

‘Cause I’ve watched you; I’ve seen you; 
I know what you are for.
I’ve held you; and you’ve loved me, 
But our lives cannot be whole.
I trust you; and despised you; 
I’ve shadowed your every move,
I’ve scorned you; and I’ve warned you; 
And befriended everyone.

Goodbye old friend; farewell it seems.
We’ll dance again; in my dreams.
Goodbye old friend; farewell it seems.
We’ll dance again; in my dreams.
We’ll dance again; in my dreams.
