We can find without searching, we can cry without a tear
We can make a light shine in the cold part of the year
We can love and hate, for the length of a cigarette
I thought we’d overcome our restlessness

A roof-deck so high, we could touch the winter sky
like eagles above the city we had an aerie to hide
No need to be sad, no need to regret
but somehow we may have missed the best

I got up in the evening and drove into the night
in my old Opel across the Swiss countryside
Soon after midnight I was knocking on your door
to lay down beside you and leave before dawn

Goodbyes ain't hard, goodbyes ain't hard to bear
We just walk on different roads from here
Goodbyes ain't hard if you don't say a word my dear
and let it all slowly disappear

A long-forgotten spirit, hidden in a crypt
made me enter that stage and act without a script
It unleashed my soul that felt shackled for so long
with something better than Southern Comfort and Coke

I got up in the morning, the whole world covered with frost
But the ice was thawing and I still felt warm from your touch
Later in the afternoon when everything fell back into dark
I was on the road again with my tank filled up

Goodbyes ain't hard, goodbyes ain't hard to bear
Just walk on different roads from here
Goodbyes ain't hard, it's just a silent split my dear
And slowly we let it all disappear

Goodbyes ain't hard, goodbyes ain't hard to bear
Just walk on different roads from here
Goodbyes ain't hard, if we just fool ourselves my dear
and pretend it was never meant to be a love sincere
