to say goodbye

to say goodbye by anelephantcant


the sunshine fades to darkness
the sadness crawls across the sky
I know the day is over but
I can’t be the one to say goodbye

my heart chokes with the memories
a lost cloud covers my eye
I know the tears are futile but
I can’t be the one to say goodbye

life’s mysteries evade me
we did not discuss just why
I know the question’s answered but
I can’t be the one to say goodbye

do you recall the good times
when we were you and I
I know we’re no longer partners but
I can’t be the one to say goodbye

I see your lips turn inwards
as you prepare another lie
I know our time is over but
I can’t be the one to say goodbye

you said we could dance on high
you told me we could fly
I now know what makes me cry
I must be the one to say goodbye
