#SLS ~ 4/25/21

Jim prompts us with Arrivederci/Bon-voyage/Ciao/Farewell/Goodbye/Hasta la vista/Sayonara/Shalom. I picked a song that uses goodbye. A sarcastic nod … guess we’ll see in the end. Now I present, “How Far We’ve Come” by Matchbox 20, Songwriters: Kyle Cook / Paul Doucette / Rob Thomas / Robert Thomas / Brian Yale.

Hello
Hello
Hello

I’m waking up at the start of the end of the world,
But it’s feeling just like every other morning before,
Now I wonder what my life is gonna mean if it’s gone,

The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour
And I started staring at the passengers who’re waving goodbye
Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we’re gonna find out
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Well I believe it all is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we’re gonna pretend,
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come

I think it turned ten o’clock but I don’t really know
And I can’t remember caring for an hour or so
Started crying and I couldn’t stop myself
I started running but there’s nowhere to run to
I sat down on the street took a look at myself
Said, “Where you going, man? You know the world is headed for hell.”
Say your goodbyes if you’ve got someone you can say goodbye to

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we’re gonna find out
Let’s see how far we’ve come (right now)
Let’s see how far we’ve come

Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we’re gonna pretend,
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come

It’s gone, gone, baby, it’s all gone
There is no one on the corner and there’s no one at home
It was cool cool, it was just all cool
Now it’s over for me and it’s over for you
Well it’s gone, gone, baby, it’s all gone
There is no one on the corner and there’s no one at home
Well it was cool cool, it was just all cool
Now it’s over for me and it’s over for you

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we’re gonna find out
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we’re gonna pretend,
Let’s see how far we’ve come (again)
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
Let’s see how far we’ve come
