Goodbye My Friend

(performed by The Garritys)
written by Melissa Bauer & Tom Sparks
Someone give me a shoulder I can cry on,
My life won't be the same now that you're gone.
You've left footprints on my heart, I thought we'd never part.
But I know I'm not the only lonely one.

Goodbye my friend, goodbye.
The pain is strong for now, but I'll get through somehow.
Goodbye my friend, goodbye,
I know I'll see you again, some day is when.

I can make it on my own even though it may seem hard,
I can prove what I have known, that I am strong.
I'll just take it day by day, so everyone will say
That I made it on my own, and I did it all alone.

Goodbye my friend, goodbye.
The pain is strong for now, but I'll get through somehow.
Goodbye my friend, goodbye,
I know I'll see you again, some day is when.

I'll keep looking at the stars up in the sky,
Asking questions, never knowing how our why.
And when the pain's too much to bear,
I'll close my eyes and you'll be there.
And as time goes by, I might learn how to smile.

Goodbye my friend, goodbye.
The pain is strong for now, but I'll get through somehow.
Goodbye my friend, goodbye,
I know I'll see you again, some day is when.

Goodbye my friend.
