Say Goodbye

No longer a child
I tried to go back
If only for a day
Travelling down the winding roads
Of my mis-spent youth
I found that I just could not stay

Feelings come on strong
When confronted with a past
I've taken so much care to forget
Time has caused decay
And I'm standing here dismayed
At the one thing that I've never done

I could say goodbye to you
That's the one thing I just could not do
And though your gone
I've waited far too long
I just came here to say goodbye to you

Now I'm standing here alone
Looking at my past
And knowing there's no way I can reach you
As a child I loved you so
At the time I did not know
One day I'd have to say goodbye

I could never say goodbye to you
That's the one thing I just could not do
And though you're gone
I've waited far too long
I just came here to say goodbye to you
