There's pleasure and pain in commencing one part of your life to transit into another, but in the end, life goes on, whether we want it, or not, but you will leave your prints behind and you let go of one thing to gain something else....

It's the last time I'm walking this road

Saying goodbye to a part of my life

Turning my back to forget all that has been

Reaching out for the freedom ahead

 

Having waited for this moment so long

I turn away from this place

Where everything's changed me so much

Walking away with a smile

These memories will finally fade

 

It's the last time I'm walking this road

Saying goodbye to a part of my life

Turning my back to forget all that has been

Reaching out for the freedom ahead

 

Leaving nothing but fingerprints back

I'll never return to here again

Time heals wounds they say

I be able to smile once I look back

 

It's the last time I'm walking this road

Saying goodbye to a part of my life

Turning my back to forget all that has been

Reaching out for the freedom ahead

 

It's now been years since I'd left

I still don't regret I did

Surely haven't missed it at all

Finally living my own life

 

Back then I'd walked this road

Approaching a new part of my life

Turning a smiling face to new future

Walking into the freedom I'd seen ahead
