Song Lyric Sunday: Goodbye/Farewell

song lyric sundayAs the great musical poet Kiki Dee once said, “I’ve got the music in me.”

Seriously, though, music is part of my daily life. I sing every day. I’m always listening and/or dancing to something. So when I found Song Lyric Sunday, I just had to participate!

This week’s theme is goodbye/farewell.

Upon hearing this song for the first time in 2013 during the second (and final) season of the TV show Smash, it quickly became one of my favorite songs that says goodbye. It’s happy. It’s sad. It’s life all rolled up in a melodic makes-you-want-to-cry-then-dance way, which I have done, many, many, many times upon hearing this tune.

Written by New York songwriter Joe Iconis, here’s the cast of Hit List, the show-within-the-show, Smash.

The Goodbye Song

The time has come
I’m flying away
Mouth is numb
Heart don’t know what to say

And although I’ll be out of sight, dear
Know I’ll be right here
Right here forever, ever, ever, ever

When you look to the night skies
Don’t think of goodbyes
Think how I’m right here ever, ever, ever

Come
No, you can’t come with me
Stay
I wish I could
Goodbye
I know it’s hard to say

Come
No, you can’t come with me
Stay
I wish I could
Goodbye
I know it’s hard to say
Ouch
I know it hurts to say

I’d stay if I could
But the universe won’t let me
So please be good
And don’t you forget me

And although I’ll be out of sight, dear
Know I’ll be right here
Right here forever, ever, ever, ever
And when you look to the night skies
Don’t think of goodbyes
Think how I’m right here ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever
