The Final Goodbye


this isn't a cry for help
not asking for forgiveness
just me saying goodbye
good luck in your life
and i'm sorry

i never wanted this
thought i could do it
guess i was wrong
i was never strong enough

always tried to be 2 steps ahead
so that i could avoid any pain
but i should have stayed in now
should have let things go how they should

i know they love me
i know they care
i know they'll miss me
but now i don't even care

all my life I've cared
always put others before me
now its time to put me first
to be free of my endless pain

so to all who care
to all who will ask
i'll tell you why
i wasn't strong enough
couldn't pretend anymore

i am sorry to everyone
so i guess goodbye
good luck
i'll be watching over you always
