Through the back window of our '59 wagon
I watched my best friend Jamie slipping further away
I kept on waving till I couldn't see her
And through my tears I asked again why we couldn't stay
Mama whispered softly time will ease your pain
Life's about changing nothing ever stays the same
And she said how can I help you to say goodbye it's okay to hurt and it's okay to cry
Come let me hold you and I will try how can I help you to say goodbye

I sat on our bed he packed his suitcase I held a picture of our wedding day
His hands were trembling we both were crying
He kissed me gently and then he quickly walked away
I called up mama and she said time will ease your pain
Life's about changing nothing ever stays the same
She said how can I help you...

Sitting with mama alone in her bedroom
She opened her eyes and then squeezed my hand
She said I have to go now my time here is over
And with her final words she tried to help me understand
Mama whispered softly...

    General CommentThis song is basicly saying that no matter how old you are it's okay to cry. A couple of years ago my cousin died, she was only a year old and I'd helped my aunt take care of her since she was three months old. She was more like a little sister to me than a cousin. For three months after she died I couldn't cry or even talk about her then I heard this song. I realized that it was okay to cry,that it didn't make me weak.

    General CommentIt is simply a sweet song written about the fact that People come and go. Take advantage of the time you have.
