Goodbye My Friend

People move on to life in the sun, and some will never be found
And I still believe that no one will leave and all will still be around

But all my friends say you're not coming back
You'd rather live on an old dirt track
With solitary playing all over the room

Goodbye my friend, I'll miss you much
So long, 'til we say hello again
Goodbye my friend, I'll remember the times we shared
When we said that we'll never depart

Too many years since I saw my peers while rumours fill the air
Some getting by ahead of their time but too distant for me to care

And so I'm told now you're getting hitched
I can't believe how much I have missed
When I am just the same guy as when I left school

Goodbye my friend, I'll miss you much
So long, 'til we say hello again
Goodbye my friend, I'll remember the times we shared
When we said that we'll never depart

And I'm excited by my life ahead
But how come everyone is leaving instead
Of spending our lifetimes with friends already made

Goodbye my friend, I'll miss you much
So long, 'til we say hello again
Goodbye my friend, I'll remember the times we shared
When we said that we'll never depart
