Lyrics[]

Been a fool, been a clown Lost my way from up and down  And I know, yes I know  And I see it in your eyes  That you really weren't surprised at me at all  Not at all  And I know by your smile it's you. 

Don't care for me, don't cry  Let's say goodbye, Adieu.  It's time to say goodbye, I know that in time  It will just fade away, it's time to say goodbye. 

I stand alone, and watch you fade away like clouds  High up and in the sky  I'm strong and so cold  As I stand alone  Goodbye, So long, Adieu. 

Oh how I love you so, lost in those memories  And now you've gone  I feel the pain, feeling like a fool, Adieu 

My love for you burns deep  Inside me, so strong  Embers of times we had  And now here I stand lost in a memory  I see your face and smile. 

Oh how I love you so, lost in those memories  And now you've gone  I feel the pain, feeling like a fool, Adieu 

My love for you burns deep  Inside me, so strong  Embers of times we had  And now here I stand lost in a memory  I see your face and smile
