Learning to say goodbye

Trying not to ask, who, when or why?

Resisting the urge to cry

Shoulders back, chest out, head held up to the sky

Maybe she found a new suitor

It's possible you just didn't suit her

Hold the desire to shoot her

She's off to a brand new future

She packs the last of her bits in the car

Ok, so she 'ain't going that far

As the key turns in the ignition she gives you one more scar

Farewell my 'shining star'

Remember to smile as she's leaving

She's all that you once believed in

And as soon as she's free and she's breathing

Go in, shut your door, start grieving

Look forward not back you must try

Cry, ache, yearn, grieve, sigh

Have faith in yourself 'til you die

Learning to say goodbye...
