Goodbye My Old Friend lyrics


My friend, I can't explain this.
My world is changed forever,
And I'm scared I'll drag you down if I should fall.
It's hard to see the glass as half-full, instead of half-empty,
When you know we both deserve to have it all.
I won't subject you to this drama as my life gets an overhaul.

So goodbye, my old friend.
I hope that if I see you again,
We can just go on, pretending that life is fair.
I hope you love what you do,
I hope that someone's tending to you,
The way I was supposed to, when I was there.
Goodbye, my old friend.

My friend, it's still hard to accept,
That now the air between us,
Is frozen; what a tangled web we weave.
When once we were as sisters,
reduced to less than strangers,
With a stalemate gameface on, for I believe,
That when the four winds reveal our true colors, we may not like what we percieve.

So goodbye, my old friend,
I hope that if I see you again,
We can give each other space with cordial form.
I could have been your ally still,
I tried to help your joy be fulfilled,
But now there's a chill that never can be warmed.
Goodbye, my old friend.

My friend, according to the book,
This parting is temporary.
Your essential being isn't really gone.
Were you scared on your last journey?
Did you suffer long in darkness?
Will you greet me when it's my turn to pass on?
It's impossible not to be saddened as you greet the eternal dawn.

So goodbye, my old friend.
I hope that if I see you again,
You will recognize me past my physical array.
They say we walk into the light,
And all souls as one they unite.
So I know it's just goodnight when I say,
Goodbye, my old friend.

Goodbye, my old friend.
