Havana Farewell

When skies turn to silver and grey and days are slipping away

Along the causeway as lovers line the shore

When songs drift away in the breeze down from the old balconies

Something could be in the air


And so you and I had to learn, that past the point of return

Everything slips away and although nights soft and warm as a kiss

Put us under a spell, they only left us with this Havana Farewell

When waves crash with hardly a sound along the sea walls of town

Splashing over the main streets just like rain

When kids from the playgrounds and hills cry out as they will

You might hear them from anywhere

And so you and I had to learn, that past the point of return

Everything slips away and although nights soft and warm as a kiss

Put us under a spell

They only left us with this Havana Farewell

If only you were wild and free and if you truly understood

That I'd have crossed that raging sea had I quite believed you ever would

Come here where the oceans awaits, dreams thrown to the fates

And fishermen toil upon the sea

Where waves crash the sea walls and break and villagers wake

To all possibility
