about

Written for my dear son, who goes off to college a month from now.

lyrics

I see far horizon in your eyes
I see that your wings are itching to get out and fly, I sympathize
but I linger, squeeze your fingers too tight,
draw out the everyday errands and suppertimes
The second hand’s running too fast
spinning through all of my time

and I know that it’s
Goodbye for now
but not forever
I’ll be here, holding it down, and I hope
it won’t be too long, yes I hope
it won’t be too long, oh I know
it won’t be too long, not if
I have anything to say about it

Opinions like demo tapes — everyone’s got one
and wants you to listen, they want to move you
I admit, I want you to listen to mine
But, deep in your heart,
you have your own set of stars to guide you through darkness
and I want to be one of those stars, so
I’ll just stand here and shine

and I know that it’s
Goodbye for now
but not forever
I’ll be here, holding it down, and I hope
it won’t be too long, yes I hope
it won’t be too long, oh I know
it won’t be too long, not if
I have anything to say about it

and what I have to say
is that no matter how far away you may go,
my heart will be with you,
and no matter how lonely you are,
you are never alone
Cause the galaxy holds us in golden arms

(Going)
Goodbye for now
(Going, going)
Goodbye for now
But not forever
(Going, going, going, going)
Not if I have anything to say
(Gone)
