De Burgh, Chris - Say Goodbye To It All Lyrics




No borderline, no borderline...

Took a boat over Lake Geneva,
It was raining all night long,
We were lucky and we saw no enemy,
And came from Switzerland, poor refugees,
Far from the guns of war,
We said goodbye to it all;

They brought us in to a nurse's station,
Half a mile behind the lines,
Oh Lord, how my heart was breaking,
To see the children, and the walking wounded,
Hoping for a ticket home,
And say goodbye to it all;

I woke up on a cold blue morning,
To see her there, standing right beside me,
Long years since I left her at the borderline,
And how she found me I'll never know,
But we decided there and then,
To say goodbye to it all;

To it all,
Say goodbye to it all,
Say goodbye to it all;

Took a train from Paris to the ocean,
Found a small hotel by the coast,
As we walked along the beaches of Normandy,
We came to Juno, Omaha and Gold,
And whispered a prayer for the boys,
Who said goodbye to it all;

Now we've got our own place by the water,
And I have a job in the old hotel,
She is ready and she's hoping for a daughter,
Well I don't mind, we've made our choice,
We've got all the time in the world,
We said goodbye to it all,
We said goodbye to it all;

'Bye to it all,
Say goodbye to it all,
Say goodbye to it all,
Say goodbye to it all,
Say goodbye to it all,
Say goodbye,
Say goodbye...

  27. Christine Statham

    I used the lyrics for No borderline with my students on a Masters course in Applied Linguistics. I cut out key words in No Borderline and the students in groups came up with their version why the couple couldn't be together. After sharing their version of the story we listened to No Borderline then the groups had to come up with their ideas of what happened after the war that were shahred with rest of the class. Many of them were most imaginative then we listened to and read the lyrics of Say Goodbye to It all. A very successful and popular lesson that involved a great deal of talking and writing. Although I've listened to this many times I still get hairs rising on the back of my neck when I hear "I woke up one pale blue morning to see her standing there... Thank you CdeB

    Emily Graham

    Christine Statham This sounds marvellous. No Borderline is so haunting and poignant. I would love to have been in your class. Emily Liberty

    SAY GOODBYE TO IT ALL SONGTEXT
    We took a boat over Lake Geneva.
    It was raining all night long
    We were lucky and we saw no enemy
    And came from Switzerland, poor refugees
    Far from the guns of war
    We said goodbye to it all

    They brought us in to a nurse's station
    Half a mile behind the lines
    Oh Lord, how my heart was breaking
    To see the children, and the walking wounded
    Hoping for a ticket home
    To say goodbye to it all

    I woke up on a cold blue morning
    I see her there, standing right beside me
    Long years since I left her at the borderline
    And how she found me I'll never know
    We decided there and then
    To say goodbye to it all (to it all)


    Say goodbye to it all
    Say goodbye to it all...

    Took a train from Paris to the ocean
    Found a small hotel by the coast
    As we walked along the beaches of Normandy
    We came to Juno, Omaha and Gold
    And whispered a prayer for the boys
    Who said goodbye to it all

    Now we've got our own place by the water
    And I have a job in the old hotel
    She is ready and she's hoping for a daughter
    Well I don't mind, we've made our choice.
    We've got all the time in the world
    We said goodbye to it all
    We said goodbye to it all.

    Say goodbye to it all
    Say goodbye to it all
    Say goodbye to it all
    Say goodbye to it all.

    Say goodbye
    Say goodbye
