Lyrics

Come here and pick me up (I'll pick you up)
Let's go to dinner (We'll do whatever)
I know you don't know me at all (I don't know you)
We don't do things like this ever

It's so nice in your car (In my car)
The music sings sweetly (Stereo is playing)
Walk across the bridge to the beach (Santa Monica)
And kiss you while it's raining (While it's raining)

Say goodbye (So say goodbye)
Say goodbye forever (Goodbye forever)
I'm in such a lonely place (Such a lonely place)
And it could be forever (Goodbye)

Your place is so much different than mine (But, it's so normal)
It's so calm and peaceful (So quiet and empty)
I could lay in your living room (You could stay in my room)
As long as possible
In the back of the taxi I feel (I watched you get in the taxi)
Loss of home and country (You still don't know me)
Back down to the storage space, yeah (As you go down)
L.A. can be so lonely

Say goodbye (So say goodbye)
Say goodbye forever (Goodbye forever)
I'm in such a lonely place (It's a lonely place)
And I could be forever (Goodbye)

I know this is the only day we'll spend together
(Strange days, strange nights, short time, strange life)
And I know, I know, I know, after this it's over forever
(Strange days, strange nights, a strange place in a strange life)

Oh, say goodbye (So, say goodbye)
So, say goodbye forever (Goodbye forever)
You've put me in a lonely place (A lonely place)
Where I could be forever (I could be forever)
So, say goodbye (So, say goodbye)
Say goodbye forever (Goodbye forever)
You put me in a lonely place (In a lonely place)
Where I could be forever
