Lyrics
That’s When I Can Say Goodbye

I can’t remember how to speak
My minds away, it can’t be reached
It’s somewhere in outer space
Miles from my home

And then I get on that southbound train
To a place, I can’t pronounce its name
You are waving your hand
As you are walking away

That’s when I can say goodbye
That’s when I can say goodbye
That’s when I can say goodbye
Without the tears

Oh my sentimental fever
I don’t know how to touch or reach her
With my selfish hands
Or my favorite song

Maybe I should stop it and give up
Cut off my tongue or the ends of my fingers
But I know you’ll say no
And that you will never leave

I will never say goodbye
I will never say goodbye
I will never say goodbye
Again

Don't get me wrong
... cos I know there is love and hard work involved here ... but the raw simplicity of this track is a beauty. Sometimes the artist and their muse are in sync ..... beautiful track Dave.

this is good stuff. one of your best. love the bits of lead guitar in the ear opposite the rhythm. your voice sounds great too man, intimate where necessary, swaggering here and there. really nice tune. dl'd.

Perfect
... sound for a sunny morning.
Love the chord changes and the instrumentation. Restrained percussion: I liked that it didn't jump in when the cymbals swelled.
"And then I get on that southbound train/To a place, I can’t pronounce its name"... that line immersed me into the song.
Pure beauty.

Goodbye
Love that rising and falling bass. It adds a real feel of a road trip tune which of course carries the song concept. Superb vocal delivery, Dave and those guitars panned left and right give this a widescreen sound that really flows. The percussion shimmer at 01:40 was a real nice touch to keep the listener tied in. Very very cool tune.

intriguing vocal style
nice flowing guitar playing, your voice has a darkness to it that's appealing. Interesting vocal hooks appeared at unexpected times like at the end of the verse. Interlude instrumental parts were good too.
