e  D       G                 D                  C                          D          e
I stand on the tallest building and stare down at the grey runway.
e             D               G       D                        C             D      e         e/D/C
And the talesmoke of the Boing jet that's taking you so far away.

C   D            C                         D             C                             D                     C               G
Believe me, I don't want you to leave me, look in my eyes and you'll see them filled with pain.
C   D      C            D                    C                               D               C             G
Imagine just how sad I'll be. In some future day when I turn and no longer see your face.
G      D            e            e              D              e
All I can now cry, is: "Good bye love, good bye!"

e      D              G                 D            C                    D                  e
In a week, in a month, in a year, in a lifetimehow I'll feel no-one can tell.
e       D           G               D                    C                 D          e        e/D/C
All I know is now you're going, there's really noone here to help!

C   D            C                         D             C                             D                     C               G
Believe me, I don't want you to leave me, look in my eyes and you'll see them filled with pain.
C   D      C            D                    C                               D               C             G
Imagine just how sad I'll be. In some future day when I turn and no longer see your face.
G      D            e            e              D              e
All I can now cry, is: "Good bye love, good bye!"

Already it's too late you're through the boarding gate, walking on a tarmac.
                                                                                                                       C
Already you are free, already you've left me and cannot bear to look back, can you?


e           D    G        D                  C                 D                  e
A brief taxi on the runway then up into the stilling night sky.
e           D            G           D                          C                              D                   e     e/D/C
I am standing on the observation tower my eye's too dimped my distance to cry:

C   D            C                         D             C                             D                     C               G
Believe me, I don't want you to leave me, look in my eyes and you'll see them filled with pain.

C   D      C            D                    C                               D               C             G
Imagine just how sad I'll be. In some future day when I turn and no longer see your face.
G      D            e         e                D                    e
All I can now do, is walk away alone without you!
