lyrics

SO LONG
Dear…uhm, you already know who you are
I’m writing you this message and attaching a star
Right-click, save, make a wish and – voila!
I won’t appear I couldn’t make it that far.
But somewhere in-between childhood dreams and computer screens
I’ll keep falling in love with every girl you’ve been;
And keep searching for words that say everything…
Everything? Well… you know, almost everything.

So long - I know it’s hard to face
But I’m gone – heading for the end of space
And no one’s – ever going to take my place
Even though life is not a race
It’s my fate to – roll on.

I know I’m flawed, but I’m perfect in the same breath
My inner child keeps asking “Daddy, are we there yet?”
No son, but we’re one step from watching you set
Take my hand, step aside, let me do the rest
Rise on this planet that’s half-asleep and half-awake
In our spaceship and set our course for outer space
‘Cause this world’s gotten too small for stars like ours
Our fortunes too bright for her tarot cards
That’s why she can’t believe we’re really going to leave
‘Cause we once said our dreams were hidden up her sleeves
Indeed, she was wrong. When humming her own song,
The words were too long, she bit her own tongue

So long - I know it’s hard to face
But I’m gone – heading for the end of space
And no one’s – ever going to take my place
Even though life is not a race
It’s my fate to – roll on.

“I never knew a lo..lo.. a love like this”*
It’s got to be special for me to bite this
Not enough days in a week to sit down a write this
So I packed up my bags and blew her a light kiss
(So long) I’ve got to hit the road lady
(I’m gone)- I can’t help it when I act shady
Saw the world through our window every bit of it amazed me
Can’t take you along, you need to stay with the baby
Rae be on his way so don’t shed a tear
I’ll write every holiday to wish you were here
Wherever here is, I don’t really know
But the truth of the matter, I Mos Def got to go
Travelling man, gathering supporters not fans,
Rolling with them, only as long as we can
But that’s not even long enough to say goodbye
Just be happy you and I still share the same sky.
