4 BELLS

4 Bells

It was 1980, a marriage had ended, I was living solo, but I had my Baldwin Concert Grand and I often defaulted to these chord changes when playing, very late at night. There was a clock that chimed the hours somewhere in the neighborhood. I had a sketch of the lyrics for years in a folder I keep of incomplete compositions.

Jump to NewYork City, late 2009, where I was feeling unsatisfied, unexcited, unfulfilled, and I knew I had to make a change with my

work, my career, my band. I felt this might be my last year of performing. Thus “ goodbye, goodbye, goodbye “.

 

4 BELLS ROBERT LAMM ©2011

FOUR BELLS CHIME SOFT IN A SILENT HOUSE

EMPTY, BUT FOR ONE BLUE BOY, JUST WAITING

FOUR BELLS CHIME SOFT, IT’S ALL BLUES TONIGHT

SOMETHING ENDS SOMETHING BEGINS, I’M WAITING

COLD EMPTY HEART

BUT I KNOW IT'S MY WORLD

TAKING THE TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

FOUR BELLS CHIME SOFT, NEVER YOUNG AGAIN

IN THE FURIOUS MOONLIGHT, I’M WAITING

COLD EMPTY HEART

BUT I KNOW IT'S MY WORLD

TAKING THE TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE

I THINK IT’S A BETTER TIME TO GO 

GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE

DON’T KNOW WHEN I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN

GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE

SOMETHING LIKE I’VE GOT TO GO

GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE

REALLY TRYIN’ TO SAY GOODBYE

GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE, GOODBYE

BYE BYE BABY
