Help- "Goodbye" U2 lyrics

Hey all. The youth pastor at my church, who I've become pretty good friends with over the years, is taking a new position and moving across the country soon. He's a young guy, early 30s, and a huge U2 fan. I plan on buying him a card, and in addition to writing something from myself, I thought maybe I'd like to put some appropriate lyrics on the inside of the card, since we share a love of the band.

Right now I'm thinking the Kite chorus would be good, but I'd love to maybe get some other suggestions. Thanks!

Agreed...Kite is an excellent choice.

Well, maybe not so much the bit about hip-hop driving the big cars. More the chorus.

Walk on? "You're packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been..."

I thought about that too, but it somehow seems more appropriate for a funeral, I think.

How about "Seconds"?

Takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh
It takes a second to say goodbye
Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh, say bye bye
Where you going to now
Lightning flashes across the sky
East to west, do or die
Like a thief in the night
See the world by candlelight
Fall, rise and...fall, rise and...

This line from One Tree Hill might work:

I'll see you again
When the stars fall from the sky
And the moon has turned red
Over One Tree Hill

Would be more apt if you wanted to blast somebody to smithereens.

No different than all the suggestions about those recommending a funeral song.

My first fast choice would be Kite, but Walk On and especially One Tree Hill would prolly work. doctorwho is right about Kite being maybe more of a passing away thing?
