Supertramp - Goodbye Stranger

English

Goodbye Stranger

It was an early morning yesterday
I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay
But I must be moving on
 
Like a king without a castle
Like a queen without a throne
I'm an early morning lover
And I must be moving on
 
Now I believe in what you say
Is the undisputed truth
But I have to have things my own way
To keep me in my youth
 
Like a ship without an anchor
Like a slave without a chain
Just the thought of those sweet ladies
Sends a shiver through my veins
 
And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few
 
Goodbye stranger it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true
Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain
 
Sweet devotion is not for me
Just give me motion to set me free
In the land and the ocean far away
It's the life I've chosen, every day
 
So, goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Goodbye Mary, Goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again
Will we ever meet again
 
Now some they do and some they don't
And some you just can't tell
And some they will and some they won't
For some it's just as well
 
You can laugh at my behavior
That'll never bother me
Say the Devil is my savior
But I don't pay no heed
 
And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few
 
Goodbye stranger it's been nice
Hope you find your paradise
Tried to see your point of view
Hope your dreams will all come true
Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame
Come tomorrow, feel no pain
 
Sweet devotion is not for me
Just give me motion to set me free
In the land and the ocean far away
It's the life I've chosen, every day
 
So, now I'm leavin', got to go
Hit the road, I'll say it once again
 
Oh, yes, I'm leaving, I've got to go
Got to go, I'm sorry I have to tell you
 
Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane
Goodbye Mary, Goodbye Jane
Will we ever meet again
Will we ever meet again
