Say Goodbye

Written 1988

Verse 1:
as we grow we leave behind the old
but the new will soon replace it we're told
but until then 
it seems I've lost a friend
and it's hard to keep my heart from going cold
sometimes it's hard to leave the old

Verse 2:
it seems I still hang on to the past
and sometimes the changes come so fast
some memories are so sweet
with the future they compete
and forever I want those times to last
sometimes it's hard to leave the past

Refrain:
I know the new will blossom like a flower in the spring
and shed it's light across the land
I know the future's coming swiftly even as I sing
I merely pause to take it's hand
I merely pause to take it's hand

Verse 3:
you can find a sort of comfort in the pain
it's hard to face the sunlight after rain
it's easier to choose 
when you've got nothing to lose
it can be so hard to let go of the chain
sometimes it's hard to leave the pain

Refrain.

Verse 4:
I know this isn't my last goodbye
challenges will come which make me cry
but in each new turn
I find something to learn
times like this I don't even want to try
sometimes it's hard to say goodbye
