She came into my life
On the wings of a lavender eagle
When I saw her I said, "you're the seagull"
And she said, "you're right"

And now she's gone away
Yes I know in my mind I'll remember
All the love any time I would send her
Till she stole the light

Holly said to say goodbye to you
She remembers (goodbye, goodbye, Holly) how you'd fare
Before her too
(Holly says to say goodbye, goodbye!)

Holly says that I first said that I would cry so
(Holly said that, I first thought that then she said goodbye so)
Goodbye dear Holly,
I'm truly sorry,
You know no one could love you more than I


When Holly came around
All the strength of the sea was beside her
And her beauty was ever denied her
For beauty was she

She came upon my eyes
Like the sky in the middle of dawning
And she conquered the night with the morning
That we might all see

Holly says to say goodbye to you
She remembers (goodbye, goodbye, Holly) how you'd fare
Before her too
(Holly says to say goodbye, goodbye!)

Holly says that I first said that I would cry so
(Holly says that, I first talked to her then she said goodbye so)
Goodbye dear Holly,
I'm truly sorry,
You know no one could love you more than I

Holly says to say goodbye to you
She remembers (goodbye, goodbye, Holly) how you'd fare
Before her too
(Holly says to say goodbye, goodbye!)

Holly says to say goodbye to you
She remembers (goodbye, goodbye, Holly) how you'd fare
Before her too
(Holly says to say goodbye, goodbye!)
