It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: Arrivederci/Bon voyage/Ciao/Farewell/Goodbye/Hasta la vista/Sayonara/Shalom

Mural, Girl, Balloon, Child, Heart

Fantastic theme!! I am sure there will be some great songs today. I always find Goodbyes hard…I really do. So many times, I have had to hold back the tears when saying goodbye to my family or beloved friends when I was moving to accept a new volunteer assignment.

I guess those tears are a sign that my time somewhere has been meaningful – beautiful friendships and warm memories that make it hard to let go! Whereas….I have walked away from paid employment when the atmosphere was detrimental to human health and had no problem at all with casting a “sayonara suckers!” – mentally of course.

Today I am going for a big emotional power ballad! We do like those from time to time. This song is called “Hurt” and is sung by Christina Aguilera. I have not really followed Christina’s career, but it does astonish me that she can pack so much emotion into her singing. I like that – a lot!!

Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today
Ooh ooh

I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you’ve done
Forgive all your mistakes.

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
To hear your voice again.
Sometimes I wanna call you but I know you won’t be there

Oh, I’m sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself by hurting you

Some days I feel broke inside but I won’t admit
Sometimes I just wanna hide ’cause it’s you I miss
And it’s so hard to say goodbye when it comes to this, ooh, whoa

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
To have just one more chance
To look into your eyes and see you looking back

Oh, I’m sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself, oh, oh, oh.

If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much that I’ve missed you since you’ve been away

Oh, it’s dangerous
It’s so out of line
To try and turn back time

I’m sorry for blaming you for everything I just couldn’t do
And I’ve hurt myself by hurting you
