Oh we never know where life will take us
I know it's just a ride on the wheel
And we never know when death will shake us
And we wonder how it will feel

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the time together through all the years
Will take away these tears
It's okay now
Goodbye my friend

I've seen a lot things that make me crazy
And I guess I held on to you
We could've run away and left well maybe
But it wasn't time and we both knew

So goodbye my friend
I know I'll never see you again
But the love you gave me through all the years
Will take away these tears
I'm okay now
Goodbye my friend

    General CommentI think that this song is beautiful, and so sad. I think that it is about a girl, who's friend is iether dieing or has already died. She is saying goodbye, and remembering all the good times they shared together.

    General CommentThe song is so beautiful, the lyrics here are incomplete. But she write the song after the death of her cat!

    Lyric CorrectionThe rest of the song:

    Life's so fragile and love's so pure
    We can't hold on but we try
    We watched how quickly it disappears
    and we never know why

    But I'm okay now
    Goodbye my friend
    You can go now
    Goodbye my friend
