I never thought it would come to this my friend but it has and we can’t change it I never really thought of asking why - is there a reason for these things? I will never forget the past, the good times outweighed the bad I never got to say goodbye, and I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it I always thought it would take a lot to make me cry, and it did and I still feel it Nothing we face in the journey of this life can prepare us for mourning I will never forget the past, the good times outweighed the bad I never got to say goodbye, and I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve I never got to say goodbye And I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it Goodbye my friend Goodbye my friend Goodbye my friend

Cast aside and left alone Can you hear me? Helplessness became my home Can you hear me? There must be peace, there must be hope Can you hear me? There must be love I’ve never known
 Are you free or are you bound to something? (There must be love) You can seek but you might not like what you find (There must be love I've never known) Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Who will heal this broken soul? Can you hear me? My despair is all I know Can you hear me? There must be peace, there must be hope Can you hear me? There must be love I’ve never known Are you free or are you bound to something? (Bound to something) You can seek but you might not like what you find (You might not like what you find) Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you Before the day that I met you Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me Before the day that I met you I never thought I needed anyone, anyone, anyone You are the only one for me (You) You are the only one for me (You) You are the only one for me

about

A few days ago was the 15th anniversary of my step-dad dying. He was my dream dad, my hero but most of all my friend. I wrote Goodbye My Friend about 12 years ago and it feels great to finally have a decent recording of it. I hope it brings peace to those who are grieving their own losses. Please share with others if you like it.

Goodbye My Friend is the debut music video for Emo Empire. It was created entirely during national lockdown due to Covid-19.
