Lyrics
Say hello from your window
Say goodbye from your car
Say goodnight from your pillow
Say so long from the stars

Take a walk out of my life
Sing to me a lullaby
Cradle songs for a midlife
Don't forget to pass me by

‘Cause my imagination runs away
On this 8th Avenue serenade

Meet me at the bathroom stall
Meet me at the Whispering Wall
Before all the flames burn out

‘Cause my imagination runs away
On this 8th Avenue serenade

Meet me at the bathroom stall
Meet me at the Whispering Wall
Before all the flames burn out
Song Meaning
In this song, the narrator is caught up in a fleeting love interest. He isn't interested in a long-term relationship with this person, but wants to let himself be free for awhile ("My imagination runs away"). The lines "Cradle songs for a midlife / don't forget to pass me by" imply that the narrator may be going through a midlife crisis-type situation with this other person, but doesn't want to do anything to slow it down at the present time. The line "Before all the flames burn out" tells us that he knows his feelings for this person will fade, but wants to take advantage of the moment and make the most of these romantic feelings.
