Lyrics

My eyes are open wide
By the way,
I made it through the day

I watch the world outside
By the way
I'm leaving out today

I just saw Haley's comet; she waved
Said "why you always running in place?"
Even the man in the moon disappeared
Somewhere in this stratosphere

Tell my mother, tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry
I'm just saying

Sometimes good bye is a second chance

Please don't cry one tear for me
I'm not afraid
Of what I have to say
This is my one and only voice
So listen close
It's only for today

I just saw Haley's comet, she waved
Said "why you always running in place?"
Even the man in the moon disappeared
Somewhere in this stratosphere

Tell my mother, tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry
I'm just saying

Sometimes good bye is a second chance

Here is my chance

This is my chance!

Tell my mother, tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I'm not angry
I'm just saying

Sometimes goodbye is a second chance
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

    Not suicidal at all Ray. This song is about taking control of your life, even if it means saying good bye to the people in your life whose love holds you down instead of lifting you up. Why Halley's Commit (Risa 1600)? Because like the years of a man's life, the the orbital period of Halley's Commit is "three score and six". Halley's Commit will be back, but we only go around once. This song is about realizing that you have to become your own person before it is too late.

    I like the way they sing the lines "I just saw Haley's comet" and "Even the man in the moon disappears" - they're interestingly sung and I like the space/astronomy references.

    The rest of the song seems rather ordinary, and the lyrics don't make much sense to me in this song.

    But I listen it to it just for those two cool lines.
