U2 Lyrics - Seconds

It takes a second to say goodbye,
Say goodbye.
It takes a second to say goodbye,
Say goodbye, say bye bye where are you
going to now?

Fall, rise and . . . Fall, rise and . .
Lightning flashes across the sky,
From east to west you do or die.
Like a thief in the night,
You see the world by candlelight.

Fall, rise and . . . Fall, rise and . .
In an apartment on Times Square,
You can assemble them anywhere.
Held to ransom, hell to pay,
A revolution everyday.
USSR, GDR, London, New York, Peking.
It's the puppets, It's the puppets who
pull the strings.

Say goodbye, say goodbye.
It takes a second to say goodbye,
Push the button and pull the plug,
say goodbye.

Fall, rise and . . . Fall, rise and . .
They're doing the atomic bomb,
Do they know where the dance
comes from?
Yes they're doing the atomic bomb,
They want you to sing along.
Say goodbye, say goodbye.
