Don't Be Gone Forever

My friend… It wasn't meant to end that way Well it wasn't meant to end My friend… You saw a side of me I never thought you'd see I saw a side of me I never knew was there Well now I'm left with such pain in my heart Knowing full well how I played a big part In the biggest mistake I'll ever make in life And we never even got to say goodbye All I can do is pray You'll be in my life again someday I hope that you're doing okay But there's no way I can say… All the things that I need to say I just write them down for myself And try to get on with my life Inside I'm crying out… Please, don't be gone forever Don't be gone forever My friend... I will never forget our time together Never forget all the fun we had My friend… We would just talk for hours and hours All the things from our lives we shared And now I'm left with this pain in my soul What a fool I was, playing my role Turned into everything that I feared Sorry is not enough, but I'm so truly sincere… And now all I can do is pray That someday I will not feel this way I wish I was doing okay But I think that it's here to stay… I think that the feelings will remain I write you things you'll never read And lock them away for eternity But I hope that it won't be so long Please, don't be gone forever No, don't be gone forever...
