Arden, Jann - A Long Goodbye Lyrics




I've lost count of all the days
I've been watching you forget
I felt tangled up and hopeless
But it hasn't killed me yet

I've been trying to remember all your memories
But I can't pretend

That it's hard to be a mother to my mother
But it's like you always said
That it's hard to be a mother to my mother
But it's like you always said

It's a long goodbye
It ain't so bad
A long goodbye
Is like a breath

You've got to wrap yourself inside
All the goodness that you've had
Wrap yourself inside
All the goodness that you've had

A long goodbye
It ain't the end

I've seen you standing in a room
Wondering what's inside your head
In a moment that existed in a time
That's long been spent

I'm gonna wrap my arms around the days
That you and I have left

'Cause it's hard to be a mother to my mother
But it's like you always said
That it's hard to be a mother to my mother
But it's like you always said

It's a long goodbye
It ain't so bad
A long goodbye
Is like a breath

You've got to wrap yourself inside
All the goodness that you've had
Wrap yourself inside
All the goodness that you've had

A long goodbye
It ain't the end

A long goodbye
It ain't so bad
A long goodbye
Is like a breath

You've got to wrap yourself inside
All the goodness that you've had
Wrap yourself inside
All the goodness that you've had

A long goodbye
It ain't the end
A long goodbye
It ain't the end

  5. Dave N

    Sweet! You're a better person than I. My mum got progressively worse over 5 years and I travelled the 800kms every 2 weeks but 1 day I knew it was the end and said goodbye with my son. My sister stayed with her daily for a month after that. I couldn't go back. I'd rather remember people when they were healthy. I'm selfish. Or weak. Glad there are people like you Jann.
