Roxette – Original Version 4:49

Red like fire was the day I met you
I tell you now there are no regrets
In this room there are many memories
Some are good some I try to forget
I thought we were the chosen ones
Who were supposed to fly

We’re very much the same you and I
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
Still waiting to get hurt time after time
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
When love lies in our hands
We seem to run and hide
And I can’t help but wonder why
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye

My heart was like a runaway train babe
I don’t believe I’ve ever felt more alive
In this room I hear voices linger
We never talked about the price
You know you’re not the only one
Who knows how to cry

We’re very much the same you and I
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
Still waiting to get hurt time after time
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
When love lies in our hands
We run away and hide
And I can’t help but wonder why
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye

We’re very much the same you and I
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
Still waiting to get hurt time after time
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
When love lies in our hands
We run away and hide
And I can’t help but wonder why
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
Goodbye

The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
The sweet hello, the sad goodbye
