My Goodbye

Your song came on the radio today
And it brought on a rush of melancholy
And for a second my heart bled
Because that song was you

And with it a rush of memories
Dylan, King, Bowie, Weller and Lennon
Every discussion we had echoes in my mind
The laughter and the meeting of two souls
Those ten records that will haunt you until the day you die
A dual mental life-line in the black mood hours

And looking back I can now see clearly
The fear underlining every communication between us
Two scared and fucked up souls yearning to find the connection
But deathly scared to admit to it

And I will never forget the hurtful memory of that day
I read your final goodbye
The pain and you will fade with time
And I’ll start trusting people again

And you’ll just be a story I tell people
Of someone who I’ll remember with rose-tinted fondness and regret
In earlier rage and bitter thoughts I wished to be able to erase every memory of you
Like that movie we discussed

But knowing you made me grow as a person
And I never want to forget that, ever
You’ll be a music memory of love lost before it could truly fly
Thank you for the music and the laughter
And the best compliment anyone has ever given me

So this is my goodbye
The one you never gave me the chance to say
I intend to try find what I’ve been looking for all these years
And I hope you find it too
