lyrics

Sitting on a hilltop,
Looking down on a town, she is covered all around
In a giant silver blanket,
From her head to her toe, clouds have come from below
The cold, it make me weary. Like i make my decisions in the foetal position

I am just about to open my eyes.
See the beauty then I’ll say goodbye

Goodbye son, goodbye son, goodbye son, bye.

My mother's waking up now.
“Can I pour you a cup, you can tell me when to stop.”
People wearing layers.
I am covered all around and I’m freezing in this town.
Wish that I could tell you that I travel to your home and I want to stay long.
But the life I put on standby won't keep me safe, keep me free from responsibility

Mum and Dad are finding what they want to say
"Make sure you ring me, Sam, I wish that you could stay."

Goodbye son, goodbye son, goodbye son, bye.

This is not your home.
Make it on your own my baby boy.
We're only shelter when you get lost.
Watch you slip away.

Goodbye son, goodbye son, goodbye son, bye.
Goodbye son, to my son, goodbye son, bye.
