I'm Afraid of Goodbye

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS SOMEONE I WAS SEARCHING FOR
BUT I FELT THAT I COULD NEVER FIND THAT SOMEONE
I SEARCHED EVERY CORNER FOR WHO WAS THAT IDEAL PERSON
WHAT THAT PERSON LOOKED LIKE AND WHY WAS I SEARCHING
I'M OKAY STAYING SOMEWHERE BY MYSELF
I TELL MYSELF I'M OKAY WITHOUT SEEING THAT SOMEONE
TURNS OUT THAT I LIED TO MYSELF
BUT KNOWING THAT I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT
I WASN'T LOOKING FOR JUST ANYBODY BUT EVERYBODY
I WAS ALL OKAY WITH SAYING GOODBYE ONE DAY
BECAUSE I KNEW I WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THAT PERSON LATER
I'M OKAY WATCHING THE SKY CHANGE BECAUSE REALLY IT NEVER LEFT
IT JUST GOT REPLACED BY SOME OTHER SKY, I WAS OKAY ABOUT THAT
BUT I WOULD NEVER BE OKAY WITH KNOWING GOODBYE WOULD COME
AND I WOULD HAVE TO SAY I WON'T SEE YOU AGAIN
IT'S MORE HEART BREAKING THAN YOU MAY THINK
BECAUSE I FEEL THAT A LONELINESS DEVOURS MORE OF ME
THOUGH THAT MAY NOT BE TOTALLY TRUE EVERY TIME
BECAUSE IT SEEMS THE LONELINESS NEVER LEAVES
SINCE I BECAME FRIENDS WITH LONELINESS
I AM ABLE TO NOTICE EVERYTHING'S' FEELINGS EXCEPT MY OWN
BECAUSE I HAVE NOT EXCEPTED WHAT THAT TRUTH IS
I AM AND FOREVER WILL BE AFRAID OF GOODBYE
I'M OKAY WITH NOT SEEING SOMEONE DIE
BECAUSE IT SHOWS I HAVE NO TIE
THAT I CAN DENY MY PAIN AS I ALWAYS DO
I'D EVEN BE OKAY DYING ALONE EVEN IF IT HURTS TO SAY THAT
BECAUSE I WOULD KNOW NO ONE WOULD HAVE THE PAIN OF WATCHING EXCEPT ME
THE LONELINESS, DEATH, AND EVERYBODY IS A FRIEND
EXCEPT FOR THE GOODBYES
BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT I'M AFRAID OF GOODBYE
THAT PERSON I'D BE LOOKING FOR WOULD BE THE ONE THAT ONLY MADE ME SAY HELLO
AND NEVER GOODBYE IS ALL I HAVE EVER THOUGHT EVEN TODAY
