" If you care about what other people think, you will always be their prisoner. " - James Frey


Before you know it things change
People go through such hard times
And your life can change,
In the time it takes you to read a text

Goodbyes are the hardest words to hear

I imagine his phone ringing by his side
But if he answered he would not speak
Last night my world almost fell apart
As my best guy friend slowly slipped through my fingers
All I heard was sobs
Hearing the dial tone over and over, drew my tears

Goodbyes are the hardest words to hear

It took hours of reassuring
"We can get through it together"
I had him press a button
So I knew he was there

Goodbyes are the hardest words to hear

Before you know it
Your best friend could be at their lowest
"It will be okay, I'm here with every step"
But I got him to calm

Goodbyes are the hardest words to hear

Before I knew it
He was the one telling me to calm down
You never really know how much someone means
Until they are slipping through your grasp

Goodbyes are the hardest words to hear

Before I knew it
I saved a life
And my best friend

Almost losing my best friend was one of the hardest things I had to go through and it really made me open my eyes to see the world in a new way. This moment in time was so sad but turned into such a great amount of inspiration.
