Say Goodbye

The hardest thing you'll ever do is say goodbye
To give up the things that get you by
And the people that keep you alive

You always see them in the corner of your eye
They're never truly gone, they never really die
They stay forever, always whispering inside

Reminding you of the pain you try to hide
Why must the hardest things be the right things?
What's the point? What's the meaning?

Lingering pain, maybe the worst feeling
You're always running, always fleeing
You want to stop your heart's bleeding

But the pain just slows your heart's beating
It's losing it's rhythm, and you're left clinging
Holding on with all of your being

Your strength is fading
And your willpower is retreating
It seems like no one tells the truth

And you're tired of the deceiving
Tired of the treason
Immune to the endless empty greeting

Words can be very misleading
Goodbye is life's worst beating
It doesn't hit you once, it just keeps on swinging
