"Farewell" as written by Ester Dean and Alexander Junior Grant....
Wherever you're going
I wanna go
Wherever you're heading
Can you let me know
I don't mind catching up
I'm on my way
Just can't take the thought of you miles away

And I know you're going somewhere to make a better life
I hope that you find it on the first try
And even though it kills me
That you have to go
I know it'll be sadder
If you never hit the road

So farewell
Somebody is gonna miss you
Farewell
Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
That somebody is me

I will write to tell you what's going on
But you won't miss nothing but the same old song
If you don't mind catching up
I'll spend the day telling you stories about a land far away
But I know

And I know you're going somewhere to make a better life
I hope that you find it on the first try
And even though it kills me
That you have to go
I know it'll be sadder
If you never hit the road

So farewell
Somebody is gonna miss you
Farewell
Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
Farewell
Somebody is gonna miss you
Farewell
Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
That somebody is me

And I'm gon' try to hold it all in
Try to hold back my tears
So it don't make you stay here, yeah
I'mma try to be a big girl now
'Cause I don't wanna be
The reason you don't leave

Farewell
Somebody is gonna miss you
Farewell
Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
Farewell
Somebody is gonna miss you
Farewell
Somebody is gonna wish that you were here
That somebody is me

    General CommentI just graduated from nursing school last night and hearing this song brings tears to my eyes as this is exactly what I'm feeling. Just knowing I spent the last two years with such a close knit group of classmates that forever changed me and how I will miss them as some are moving to other states and moving in all different directions. I'm just not ready to let go yet but I have to wish them all a happy "farewell" :)

    General CommentRihanna closes her sixth studio album with this anguished ballad, in which she says goodbye to a lover. The song was produced by Alex da Kid, who also helmed Rihanna's hit with Eminem, "Love The Way You Lie."
