Goodbyes are final (My first crack at song lyrics)

Recommended Posts

Hey all ^w^

Well, this is probably the first lyrics for a song that I wrote. While I can imagine the lyrics and the tune to the song in my head, I don't really have any musical experience, so I can only really share the lyrics for it. I hope you enjoy! ^^

...

Goodbyes are final:

 

It's a strong word to mutter, it takes all your gears,

‘Cause final words feel like forcing out your fears.

I'll turn my head, while holding back tears,

‘Cause It's the same old story that's been haunting me for years.

 

See, farewells are meant to be final, yet there’s false hope instead,

That when they've been said and done the past will stick in your head.

‘Cause I don't want, to forget such good times,

But,

how do I remember when I cross so many different kinds of lives.

 

It's hard sometimes,

I know,

To step away from those that made you feel so whole.

 

But that simple word,

That single phrase,

The one word that's final and hurts in so many ways.

You wish it were a lie, but you try not to cry

When you're forced to say that one word,

The final “Goodbye”....

 

Goodbye to the years we spent together,

Goodbye to the memories that you and I treasure,

Goodbye to the days that felt like forever,

‘Cause Goodbyes are final and happen whenever.

 

…. (Pause of vocals, let instrumental play for a while) ….

 

“Life's too short to look back on the past”

Is a phrase that comes up often, but is easily passed.

Because truth be told, to all that know,

It's just hard sometimes to simply let go.

 

“It's easy to say, but not to do”,

Is the motto I stand by when a farewell is due.

Even still, I hold my head up high,

Because the time I spent with you is something that’ll never slip my mind.

 

It's hard sometimes,

I know,

To step away from those that made you feel so whole.

 

But that simple word,

That single phrase,

The one word that's final and hurts in so many ways.

You wish it were a lie, but you try not to cry,

When you're forced to say that one word,

The final “Goodbye”...

 

Goodbye to the years we spent together,

Goodbye to the memories that you and I treasure,

Goodbye to the days that felt like forever,

‘Cause Goodbyes are final and happen whenever. (X2)

Love it. It flows perfectly and it was fun to read and imagine what it might sound like, really, really good! I feel like it could be a mellow rock and roll song, idk maybe that's just me; But this was outstanding, I loved it. And I loved the lyrics, if only nowadays singers could make good and wholesome songs like this. Hope to see more of your work later on. :D
