Funny, how it ends like this
Jackie feels like she’s flying; she’s got no wings
Closed eyes, don’t cry, look for the light
Stars they must be beautiful tonight

* All alone, Jackie sings
Game is over, Jackie thinks
Sure is cold this evening
She doesn’t feel a thing

Gently, could it end with ease
Life’s been quiet, why not this
But no, cue thunder, enter rain
Whoever’s up there, spare her pain


Oh, it’s time for some parting words
Something indelible, maybe like
“All I wanted was all I needed
Now I can’t discern between faith and hope
Goodbye life, Goodbye love
Goodbye all that I’ve ever felt being with you
Goodbye happy, goodbye fear
Goodbye, bye”
