                                   'Late Goodbye'
                                    Song Lyrics 
    ----------------------------By Poets of the Fall-------------------------------
    
    Based on a poem by Sam Lake
    
    
    LATE GOODBYE
    
    in our headlights, staring, bleak, beer cans, deer's eyes
    on the asphalt underneath, our crushed plans and my lies
    lonely street signs, powerlines, they keep on flashing, flashing by
    
    and we keep driving into the night
    it's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye
    and we keep driving into the night
    it's a late goodbye
    
    your breath hot upon my cheeck, and we crossed, that line
    you made me strong when I was feeling weak, and we crossed, that one time
    screaming stop signs, staring wild eyes, keep on flashing, flashing by
    
    and we keep driving into the night
    it's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye
    and we keep driving into the night
    it's a late goodbye
    
    the devil grins from ear to ear when he sees the hand he's dealt us
    points at your flaming hair, and then we're playing hide and seek
    I can't breathe easy here, less our trail's gone cold behind us
    till' in the john mirror you stare at yourself grown old and weak
    
    and we keep driving into the night
    it's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye...

    Extras:
    
    In Max Payne 2 you can hear this song in game during certain situations,
    have you heard them?
    
    1. The Janitor in the basement where Max lives is listening to it on his
    headphones and singing and humming the verses!
    
    2. One of the squeeky clean mob is playing it on a piano while two others
    look on!
    
    3. Max's siege of the building during part 2, chapter 2. As you work your
    way through the rooms and into the outside for the very first time where there
    are some cleaners about talking, don't attack! Listen...and one of them on the
    tower will start whistling it!
